The Highland Community College Foundation has rescheduled the annual Leadership Golf Outing to Friday, September 11, 2020. The event has always been held the first Monday in June, but was moved for the health and safety of the participants.
“This marks the 24th year for the Highland Foundation golf outing,” said Jeff Reinke, Executive Director, Highland Community College Foundation. “Moving this long-standing event to September will make it possible for our Corporate Partners and many long-time supporters to enjoy the day.”
The golfing experience begins with a 10:30 a.m. check-in, and a box lunch at 11 a.m., and shotgun-tee-off at noon. Specials treats and beverages are available on the course. Heavy hors d’oeuvres start at 6 p.m., followed by fellowship, prizes, and awards. Fee for golf, cart and all of the amenities is $150 per person and $600 for a group of four.
The outing takes place at the Freeport Club, 1614 S. Park Blvd., Freeport, IL, and supports Highland’s Leadership programs in Stephenson and Jo Daviess counties and the High School Servant Leadership program at school districts across northwest Illinois. Golf outing sponsors and underwriters include HELM Group, Inertia, MetLife, The Morse Group, SAVANT, Winter Construction, FHN, Monroe Clinic, 23 WIFR, and Woodbine Bend.
“We are thankful for our sponsors and supporters that help make this outing a success. The proceeds raised support the Leadership Institute, which has had many years of helping to develop and sustain our local leaders. In fact, some of the alum from the institute participate each year,” said Reinke.
