San Antonio – It’s a “Throwback to the 80s” as UIW celebrates the 38th annual Swing-In Auction Party & Golf Tournament.  The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 30 with the auction party in UIW’s McCombs Center Rosenberg Sky Room. The party features live and silent auction packages, delicious buffets, signature themed drinks plus great music & dancing. On Friday, May 1 the fun continues with a day of golf at the Republic Golf Club (4226 Southeast Military Drive). Golfers can chose from either a 7:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. tee time. Lunch is provided and awards will be given. 

Swing-In was created in 1977 by former UIW president Sr. Margaret Patrice Slattery to raise scholarship funds for Incarnate Word students.  Since then, UIW has invited individuals and corporate partners from San Antonio and South Texas to support its students by participating in this two-day event. 

To date, Swing-In has raised over $5 million dollars and remains the oldest golf tournament in the Alamo City.  

Auction party tickets are $100 per person. For information on the auction party, individual/group tournament sponsorships, or other donor opportunities contact UIW’s Development Office at (210) 829-6013 or visit http://www.uiw.edu/swingin. Like them on Facebook at facebook.com/uiwdevelopment.
