The Owl Club hosted its second Happy Hour for the 2006-2007 year at Duffy's Sports Grill in Boca Raton last Thursday.

Owl Club President Richard Staller opened the event by welcoming everyone and urging those in attendance to make a difference by supporting the Florida Atlantic University student-athlete scholarship fund.

In attendance were members of the athletics department, family, friends and former FAU football player Chris Laskowski. He is a prime example of a student-athlete who came to FAU as a walk-on, worked hard to obtain a scholarship and has been invited to the Indianapolis Colts training camp for the second year.

Also in attendance were football coach Howard Schnellenberger, men's basketball coach Rex Walters, women's basketball coach Chancellor Dugan, women's soccer coach Brian Dooley and men's tennis coach David Komie.

The Owl Club consists of members of the community and University who work together to raise support and enthusiasm to further FAU athletics. The Owl Club supports the student-athlete scholarship fund.

The next Happy Hour will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 17, at Tarpon Bend in Ft. Lauderdale.
