Waterloo, Iowa – During April, the Dave Aumer Memorial Scholarship Fund will receive donations from the $16.50 Campaign, presented by Slumberland Furniture, 1650 The Fan, and the Waterloo Black Hawks.

The scholarship was created in 2017 in memory of Dave Aumer, a youth advocate and supporter of the Waterloo Warriors hockey program.  Dave’s family and friends established the fund to benefit graduating senior Warriors high school players who are in good team standing, have maintained a 2.5 or better grade point average, and plan to attend an accredited public or private college or university, vocational technical school, or any other accredited institution.  The $500 scholarship is renewable each year the student is enrolled in postsecondary education, and it is managed by the Waterloo Community Foundation.

“The Black Hawks are pleased to draw attention to the Dave Aumer Scholarship once again this spring,” said Team President and COO Joe Greene.  “Over the years, this scholarship has been awarded to a lot of really dedicated, driven young players who have come up through the Waterloo Youth Hockey Association.”

As part of the $16.50 Campaign, the goal is for 100 Black Hawks fans to make a modest contribution of $16.50 to the Dave Aumer Memorial Scholarship Fund during the month of April.  If that goal is achieved, collectively fans will have the opportunity to take pride in an impactful total gift of $1,650 at month’s end.

The $16.50 Campaign’s goal is for 100 Black Hawks fans and 1650 “The Fan” listeners to make a modest contribution of $16.50 this month.  Like any crowd-sourced fundraising effort, success depends on many people each lending a hand and the principle that pooling many small donations can help in a big way. The cooperative effort between Slumberland, the Black Hawks, and 1650-AM KCNZ focuses on a different cause in the Cedar Valley each month during hockey season.
