Each year we host a golf outing to help raise money for scholarships, connect with industry and alumni, and of course have some fun on the golf course. This year was our 5thannual Tee Up Fore Scholarships golf outing and the event still proves to be successful.
We are grateful to Whitetail Ridge Golf Club in Yorkville, who allow us to hold the event where participants golf, enjoy food and enter to win prizes in the raffle and silent auction. This year, we lucked out with nice weather for the golfers to enjoy.
This year, Tee Up Fore Scholarships welcomed 96 individual golfers and 24 teams. With these golfers, 22 companies are represented, including Caterpillar who is a main sponsor of the event. Overall, the golf outing raised around $25,000 in scholarship money through registration fees, the silent auction, and the raffle.
With five years in the books, we know that our golf outing will only continue to grow and flourish. We love being able to help our students by raising money for scholarships in such a fun way. We thank all of our sponsors and students and faculty members whose hard work helped make the event possible.
The preparations for next year are already underway! #WhyEngineering
