SCC Hosts Former NLF Player at Celebrity Night

09/26/2019

The Blackhawk Booster Club of Southeastern Community College will host its annual fundraiser on Thursday, October 10 at the Pzazz! Convention Center.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour, during which attendees can peruse the silent auction items. Dinner will follow at 6:30 p.m. with a high-spirited live auction beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The evening will top off with a presentation by former Iowa Hawkeye and 10-year NFL wide receiver and return specialist Tim Dwight. Dwight left a strong mark in Big Ten history, finishing his college career with Big Ten records for punt return yardage and punts returned for touchdowns.

Dwight went on to start his 10-year NFL career with a memorable play in Super Bowl XXXIII, when he returned five kickoffs, including one for 94 yards and a touchdown. He is second all-time in Super Bowl kick return yardage for a single game, and his 42 yards per return in the game was a Super Bowl career record.

Since moving forth from his football career, Dwight is known for various philanthropic endeavors, including the Tim Dwight Foundation. The foundation raises funds for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital and for scholarships to help kids attend the Tim Dwight Football Camp.

"We feel honored to host Tim Dwight this year," Athletic Director Tyler Gaston says. "As always, the booster club has worked hard to put the event together and it looks like it will be another fantastic evening."

Funds raised at the event primarily go towards athletic scholarships.

Tickets cost $50 in advance and $60 at the door. VIP tables for eight are available for $600.
