The Northeastern Illinois University Foundation’s annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event raised $35,600 for student scholarships in 2014, the second-best fundraising result in the 42 years of the tournament.

The Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event is held annually in memory of former athletic director and golf coach Charles “Chuck” Kane. Chuck Kane scholarships have supported more than 125 students, a group known as The Second 9, since 1973.

The tournament draws a number of notable alumni among the 134 golfers, including NBA referee Danny Crawford and former MLB pitcher Alan Hargesheimer. (Check out pictures from last year's event.)
