On June 15 we hosted our 12th annual Golf Classic with the support of corporate partners and alumni from the Chicagoland area. The funds raised at the Lake Forest Graduate School of Management Golf Classic support our General Scholarship Fund providing financial support for our MBA students.

Despite the brief rain delay, our event offered fun challenges and entertainment for our golfers and the corporate sponsors who attended at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Long Grove. We would like to thank the staff and management of the Royal Melbourne for the catering and use of the facilities and the golf course for our fundraising event.

Due to the generosity of our corporate sponsors, we awarded prizes for golf and putting challenges, team awards, and individual raffle prizes. We are pleased to announce the winners.
