45th Annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event Thank You
On August 7, 2017, the Northeastern Illinois University Foundation hosted the 45th annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, the longest-running philanthropic tradition at Northeastern Illinois University. The event was held at Eaglewood Resort & Spa’s 18-hole championship golf course, in Itasca, Ill.
This year the event was able to raise more than $29,000 toward student scholarships. Over 150 members of the NEIU community attended the event to show their support of Northeastern students.
“The mission of this event is to support our students with scholarships and to honor the memory of a consummate professor,” said Liesl Downey, executive director of the NEIU Foundation and Northeastern’s vice president for Institutional Advancement. “It is one of the most symbolic efforts of the Foundation, and we are grateful to everyone who joins us in our efforts.”
In total, seven scholarships are funded by the Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, which has now raised more than $300,000 over the past 10 years. With an endowment of $424,723, the scholarship has provided support for more than 145 students. Fourteen more scholarships will be awarded before the end of this year.
