The Prairie State College Foundation is hosting its 30th Annual Scholarship Classic Golf Outing on Monday, June 5, at Idlewild Country Club in Flossmoor. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit student scholarships at PSC.
For those not into golf, the foundation invites guests to the evening cocktail hour.
The golf scramble fee is $200 and includes a grilled lunch in the clubhouse beginning at 11 a.m., driving range warm-ups and putting green practice. At 12:15 p.m., there is a Helicopter Ball Drop and the shotgun start is at 12:30 p.m. Golf carts and beverages are included.
The foundation is accepting event sponsorships. The golf outing also has a Diploma Games Package that includes participation in a hole-in-one contest for $5,000 to the first successful contestant, three mulligans, a Poker Run contest, and more.
The evening event will begin with cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres after golf at approximately 4 p.m., followed by an awards presentation. There is a $30 cost for the non-golfer coming to the cocktail hour.
“We want to provide the hard-working students of Prairie State College with the best opportunities to advance their futures,” said Deborah Havighorst, executive director of Institutional Advancement and the PSC Foundation. “The golf outing gives our community a chance to connect while helping our foundation raise much-needed scholarship funds to help us make a difference in the lives of our students.
“The foundation is on track to award over $175,000 in need-based scholarships to assist qualifying students with tuition and textbooks. By sponsoring or attending the golf outing, you are making a difference in the lives of PSC students,” she said.
Advance registration is required by May 23. For more information or to register, visit give.classy.org/PSCgolf23 or call the PSC Foundation office at 708-709-7918.
