BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - The Hilltopper Athletic Foundation (HAF) will be holding its annual member social and signing day event on Tuesday, August 20. The member social will begin at 6:00 PM (CT) at E.A. Diddle Arena, and all new members who have joined the HAF in the last calendar year are invited to attend an exclusive reception prior to the member social at 5:30 PM.

The HAF is on pace to break that record in 2013, and its board members and volunteers will continue their efforts to recruit new members by calling prospective members during the day of the reception and social.

The membership social costs $20, and reservations must be made no later than Wednesday, August 14. To RSVP, please call the HAF at (270) 745-5321.
The Hilltopper Athletic Foundation's mission is to provide the necessary scholarship funding to allow as many student-athletes as possible the opportunity for an athletic and academic experience at Western Kentucky University and to further support WKU Athletics through private philanthropy and visibility. Since its inception in 1965, the HAF has served as the financial lifeblood of our athletic department, contributing toward student-athlete scholarships, facility renovations and athletic department operational expenses.
