On Monday, August 8, the 44th Annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event will take place at Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, IL. Last year the Kane Outing raised $37,000 for student scholarships. This is the highest fundraising total for the outing.
Last year we welcomed NHL Blackhawks legend, Hall of Famer and 1961 Stanley Cup Champion, Bobby Hull, and NEIU alumnus and assistant managing editor of Crain's Chicago Business, Tom Corfman, as our guests. Bobby hung out at hole 10 on the course, during cocktail hour and dinner and took pictures and signed autographs. Tom joined us for dinner as our featured speaker. Stay tuned for our 2016 speakers!
The tournament has drawn a number of notable alumni over the years, including NBA referee Danny Crawford and former MLB pitcher Alan Hargesheimer.
