Cloudy skies did not deter the sold-out crowd at the Schaumburg Township Elementary School Foundation's Golf Outing held June 10 at Schaumburg Golf Club. The rain never fell on the 16th annual signature event, sponsored by Manzardo & Associates, where contests and sponsored treats were offered across all 27 holes.
After an 18-hole round, qualifiers competed in a putt-off for a single chance to sink a 50-foot putt. Finalist attorney Robert Fisher was calm and collected as he sank the perfect putt, winning a cool $10,000.
"Our guests went crazy seeing someone make that shot" said foundation chairman Gary Caby.
The evening ended with dinner, silent auction, raffle and awarding of team prizes before presenting to former chairman and current trustee Dennis P. Quinn the first Trustee of the Year Award.
The Foundation extends its sincere appreciation to the many loyal sponsors, guests and volunteers for a record breaking $37,000 in proceeds, which will support its mission of Excellence in Education by funding programs and initiatives in District 54 schools that are not covered by school budgets or tax dollars.
