Golf outing helps fund scholarships

By on May 18, 2010

SUGAR GROVE—The rolling fairways and sprawling greens of Bliss Creek Golf Course again will be the setting for the 2010 Sugar Grove Community Golf Outing, hosted by the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The event, now in its 11th year, brings together Sugar Grove residents and local civic and business leaders for a full day of golf, fellowship and fun with the goal of raising funds for the Chamber Scholarship program and various chamber projects.

The outing gets under way Friday, June 25, at 11 a.m. with lunch, then a shotgun start for golfers at noon. The outing is followed by a steak dinner and prizes for all.

Throughout the day, various products and services—generously donated by Chamber of Commerce businesses—will be raffled off.

Co-chairs of this year’s event are local attorney and Chamber President James White, and Sugar Grove Village President Sean Michels.

Proceeds from the outing support the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce’s three academic scholarships, as well as the ongoing operations of the chamber.
