Saint Xavier University Hosts 20th Annual Golf Classic
Golfers of all skill levels are invited to show what they can do on the links at Saint Xavier University's (SXU) 20th Annual Golf Classic on Tuesday, August 2 at Silver Lake Country Club, 14700 South 82nd Avenue in Orland Park. Participants will come together for an enjoyable day on the course to help raise funds for student scholarships!
The outing begins with registration and a continental breakfast at 7 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Cocktails, a delicious dinner, golf prizes and a raffle drawing will take place from 3 to 5:30 p.m.
"Our annual Golf Classic is a great way to enjoy a day with friends and colleagues and, most importantly, raise scholarship dollars for deserving and talented SXU students," said John Bass, associate vice president for University Advancement. "Last year, we saw more than 140 golfers attend from the Chicagoland area to help us raise over $100,000; we are so fortunate to have the support from both SXU and local communities!"
Since its inception in 1997, this event has raised more than 1 million dollars for student scholarships. Special guest and emcee is Chicago's own Dwayne Kennedy, a stand-up comedian, actor and writer who has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central Presents, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conon O'Brien and Seinfeld.
Registration for individual golfers is $300, which includes green fees, cart, continental breakfast, lunch on the course, and dinner/comedy show. Participants can also purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a wide variety of electronics, overnight trip packages and golf gear.
Surrounding local communities are getting excited for the event next week, as well as various media outlets, like:
