Kane Golf OutingNEIU's oldest fundraising tradition, the Chuck Kane Memorial Golf Outing, will hold its 39th annual event this year on August 15 at the Highland Park Country Club. This event, which is hosted by the NEIU Foundation, raises money for student scholarships. Much of the support comes from event sponsors, and sponsorship opportunities are now available for this year's golf outing.

Since 1972, the Chuck Kane Memorial Golf Outing has raised enough money to provide scholarships to more than 100 students. Last year's event raised enough funds to provide $500 scholarships to 14 students-- five more than the Foundation was able to provide in previous years.

In addition to providing financial support for student scholarships, event sponsors may receive additional benefits including participation in the golf outing, acknowledgement of their gifts in advertisements for the event, signage at the event, and others. Individuals, businesses or organizations that are interested in learning more about sponsorship of the Chuck Kane Memorial Golf Outing should contact Liesl Downey, director, development, at l-downey@neiu.edu or ext. 4248.
