Tickets and sponsorships are now available for the 24th Annual Elgin Community College Foundation Golf Classic on Monday, June 13. The event will be held at the Elgin Country Club, 2575 Weld Road, Elgin. Golfers of all ages and abilities are invited.
“Please join us for the 24th Annual ECC Foundation Golf Classic! This important event, which raises money to fund ECC student needs and scholarships, will again be at the beautiful Elgin Country Club. We cannot wait to see you there,” said Jenni Betancourt and Boomer Whipple, co-chairs of the Golf Classic Planning Committee and ECC Foundation Board Members.
The Golf Classic is one of several events held by the ECC Foundation to raise funds to support student scholarships, innovative programs, and other areas of critical need in fulfilling ECC’s mission to improve lives through learning. Since its formation in 1984, the foundation has provided more than $4 million in direct financial support to the college and ECC students through scholarship awards and program support.
“Last year, we were overwhelmed by the response to the in-person return of our ECC Foundation Golf Classic. Now in our 24th year, we are looking forward to a fresh and even more improved experience for our golfers and supporters,” said David Davin, executive director of institutional advancement and the ECC Foundation. “This event provides vital support for students as they pursue their educational dreams, and we are so excited to have our golfers back again this year supporting this worthy cause.”
The classic begins at 10:30 a.m. with registration, followed by an 11 a.m. lunch and a noon shotgun start and a four-person scramble. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on live auction items and Fund-A-Student donations to directly support scholarships during the evening dinner and awards program, starting with a reception at 5 p.m.
The cost is $375 per person for the entire day, including all guest fees, locker rental, golf cart, and food and beverages through the completion of dinner. Guests can also choose to attend only the lunch ($35) or dinner ($75).
A limited number of golfer registrations remain available. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $700. The 2022 ECC Foundation Golf Classic presented by OTTO is generously supported in part by Presidential Sponsor Hoffer and Premier Sponsors IHC Construction, LLC, Lundstrom Insurance, and Middleby Corporation.
