Hundreds of golfers were at Schaumburg Golf Club Wednesday to compete for the Links Technology Cup in a fundraiser for the Schaumburg Park Foundation.
The seventh annual event featured perfect weather for a day of golf. The outing included 18 holes of golf, contests and prizes and a Chandler's steak dinner. Every other hole on the course featured food and/or beverages from area restaurants.
"This is one of the foundation's best fundraisers of the year, and a definite contributor to that success is our title sponsor, Links Technology Solutions," Tony LaFrenere, executive director of the Schaumburg Park District, said in a prepared statement. "Links has been bringing people and technology together for 15 years, and we're proud to say we have been in partnership with this great company for more than half that time."
Other major sponsors for the event include Schaumburg Bank & Trust, WT Engineering, Divine Signs and Chandler's/Ala Carte Entertainment.
Last year's event raised about $40,000 to pay for scholarships and recreation-based activities. The event also has helped the foundation contribute to the costs of creating a new dog park at Copley Park, the renovation of the Nature Museum at Spring Valley and the purchase of a bus for senior residents.
