On Monday, August 17, the 43rd Annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event took place at Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, IL. It was another success, raising $37,000. This is the highest fundraising total for the outing.
This 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.
The tournament has drawn a number of notable alumni over the years, including NBA referee Danny Crawford and former MLB pitcher Alan Hargesheimer.
