"Come for four years, stay for a lifetime"...this motto was personified on a picture-perfect Friday, July 24, 2015 on 36 holes at beautiful Gleneagles Country Club in Lemont. The warm, sunny weather helped spur over 200 committed St. Rita Alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends all turn out for a fun day of golf and fellowship, while raising funds to help a St. Rita college-preparatory education stay as affordable as possible.
The tens of thousands of dollars raised at the 40th Annual St. Rita Scholarship Golf Outing on July 24 will help fund scholarships and tuition assistance for current Ritamen and their families!
Alumni golfers turned out from decades spanning almost 70 years, starting with graduates from the 1950s through recent graduates from the 2010s. St. Rita parents and friends made a strong showing at the outing and dinner too. Rounding out the crowd this year were representatives from first-time sponsor Loras College, who joined our other college sponsor--Wabash College! (Please remember to patronize all our generous sponsors--listed below.)
Lucky silent auction and raffle winners went home with opportunities to play golf at some of Chicagoland's most challenging, private country clubs and also scored some one-of-a-kind items of Mustang gear, including authentic St. Rita sports uniforms and an actual City of Chicago 63rd & Claremont street sign!
We are already looking forward to the 41st Annual St. Rita Scholarship Golf Outing, in less than one year, at Gleneagles Country Club on Friday, July 22, 2016!
