Woodforest National Bank has partnered with Sam Houston State and the Department of Athletics to be the presenting sponsor of this year’s Bearkat Invitational Golf Tournament.

“We are so pleased to have Woodforest National Bank partner with us for this year’s event,” said Director of Athletics Bobby Williams. “The Bearkat Invitational is becoming one of the premier events we are hosting as an athletic department and it wouldn’t be possible to do without the support of Woodforest National Bank.”

The Bearkat Invitational is the sole golf outing benefitting the Sam Houston State Athletics Department and supports all 17 sports.  Nearly 400 student-athletes represent Sam Houston State University on the field, in the arena, and in the classroom.

"We are proud of our affiliation with Sam Houston State University as the presenting sponsor of the 2017 Bearkat Invitational Golf Tournament.  Our support of this event is a direct reflection of our continued commitment to the university and this community, said Cathy Nash, President and Chief Executive Officer of Woodforest National Bank."

This year's tournament is Monday, June 5, and gives supporters of Sam Houston State Athletics the opportunity to contribute while enjoying a day of golf at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands.
