The Northeastern Illinois University Foundation is hosting the 45th annual Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, our longest-running philanthropic tradition. The event will be held at Traditions, Chevy Chase Country Club’s 18-hole championship golf course at 1000 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling, Ill.
The University’s biggest annual fundraiser is held in memory of former athletic director and golf coach Charles “Chuck” Kane. Over time, the event has focused not only on sport and leisure, but has also emphasized the values of giving back by providing much-needed scholarships for deserving Northeastern Illinois University students.
In total, seven scholarships are funded by the Chuck Kane Scholarship Golf Event, which has now raised more than $281,337 over the past 10 years. With an endowment of $424,723, the scholarship has provided support for more than 145 students. Fourteen more scholarships will be awarded before the end of this year.
