The Moraine Valley Community College Foundation aims to raise $40,000 at its annual golf outing in honor of the 40th anniversary of hosting this popular event. The golf outing will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, and all proceeds will be used to support student scholarships.
Although tickets for golfing have sold out, individuals can support the outing in other ways, such as buying tickets to the post-golf celebration dinner at Cog Hill (begins at 3 p.m.) for $60 or bidding on silent auction items. An online silent auction opens on Sept. 1 and runs through Sept. 15.
Some of the items available include a Blackhawks hockey puck signed by Bobby Hull, foursomes at Cog Hill and Crystal Tree Golf and Country Club in Orland Park, a Canon IVY Mini Photo Printer, original artwork and more.
Businesses and individuals also can support the event by becoming a sponsor. Sponsorships that are still available range from hole sponsorships for $350 to beverage and gift sponsorships for $1,000. Information on event sponsorships is available online.
“The Foundation is proud to have helped thousands of students with money raised at our past annual golf outings,” said Kristy McGreal, executive director of the Foundation. “We are grateful so many in our community have supported the event over the years, and we are hopeful we can meet our goal of raising $40,000 this year.”
