The Northeastern Illinois University Foundation raised just over $35,000 at the 42nd Annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event on August 18, 2014, with proceeds benefiting the Chuck Kane Memorial Scholarship Fund. Since the Foundation has taken over the Kane Golf Event, it has raised over $200,000 towards student scholarships. A big thank you to our sponsors, golfers and dinner attendees!
Since 1973, the Chuck Kane Memorial Scholarship Fund has provided more than 125 deserving Northeastern Illinois University students with scholarships. Thank you for joining us for 18 holes and dinner at the Traditions at Chevy Chase Golf Course and Country Club to support a good cause in memory of a good man. At this year's event, alumni who received a Chuck Kane Scholarship, a group also known as The Second 9, and other outstanding alumni were recognized in memory of Chuck Kane. Many of Northeastern’s notable alumni also attended, including Danny Crawford, entering his 30th year as a NBA Referee; Alan Hargesheimer, former MLB pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals; and Brian James, Northwestern University Assistant Basketball Coach and former NBA assistant coach for 14 years.
