No Shortage of Fun at Hot, Sunny Golf Outing!

Bright sunshine, cloudless skies and perfect temperatures set the stage for a full day of fun for 180 golfers at this year’s Golf Outing held at Sportsman’s Country Club. Golfers enjoyed a best ball scramble tournament and skills contests through the course sponsored by 43 Chamber members. The day was capped off by lots of camaraderie at the cocktail hour and dinner at Marcello’s.

In addition to the skills contests on every hole, cash prizes were awarded to the top three foursomes for low score. After relinquishing the top spot last year, Presenting Sponsor Phil Kuhn’s foursome of Gary Colabuono, Moondog; Tyler McNeely, Illinois Casualty and Marty Albert, Albert and Goodman, reclaimed top honors, posting a score of 21 under. At 17 under, the Atlas foursome of John Grant, TJ Przybylski, Mark Russell and Mo Tames took second place. Right behind at 16 under to take third was the Korman/Lederer foursome of Peter Balyeat, Ryan Hagan, Brent Jones and Jon Stensberg, Wilshore Electric.
Jane Woloson, Suncrest Hospice, edged the putt closest to break a three person tie, winning the Putting Contest sponsored by Allstate. All golfers were treated to gift filled hospitality bags sponsored by First Bank of Highland Park.

Winner of the $500 Grand Prize raffle, sponsored by Align Wellness, was Dave Masters. The second prize winner of a $500 gift certificate for Elegance in Meats went to Fred Steineman, UPS. Third prize $150 Morton’s certificate went to Denise Dehesus, KGH Consultation and Treatment. There were over 50 additional raffle prizes generously donated by Chamber members.
