The College of Lake County Foundation's annual Joan Legat Memorial Golf Outing, held June 9 at the Glen Flora Country Club in Waukegan, raised more than $30,000 for the scholarship fund, according to Karen Schmidt, the foundation's executive director.
The event drew 90 golfers, 20 volunteers and 25 business sponsors. CLC Foundation board members serving on the golf outing committee included Darrell Katz, David Galla, Bob Werdan and Rob Hauswirth, committee chair.
"Thanks to all volunteers and corporate sponsors for making the golf outing another success," Hauswirth said. "The funds raised for scholarships will allow more CLC students to realize their dream of obtaining a college education and connecting with their futures."
Individual contest winners included Ron Hauswirth for straightest drive; Todd Netherton, Jeff Donenberg, Ian Alba and Luke Denoma for closest to the pin (on four different holes); Bill Devore for longest putt; and Mark Loeb for the putting contest.
