LAKE FOREST, IL (July 22 2013) On June 24, 2013, Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM) held its 10th annual Golf Classic event to support the School’s General Scholarship Fund. With more than 112 alumni, faculty and friends of the School in attendance at the Royal Melbourne Country Club in Long Grove, IL, the event raised more than $57,000 for scholarship assistance to Lake Forest MBA students in financial need. The School offers its gratitude to the numerous area corporate business supporters, including event sponsor ITW.
As a not-for profit, independent business school, LFGSM is one of the few graduate business schools nationwide to provide scholarship support to part-time MBA students, many of whom could not complete their studies without the support of the School’s generous donors. Last year’s Golf Classic event enabled LFGSM to award 146 scholarships for 92 students. Skip Thompson, a scholarship beneficiary offered his gratitude noting, “I am the very proud recipient of a wonderful scholarship opportunity made possible through fund raising events such as this.”
Participant Bob Thomas, Executive Director and CEO of Rainbows for All Children and member of the School’s Business Advisory Council, praised the day’s good fortune. “I had the opportunity to participate and play in a really fun charity golf outing helping to raise funds for the LFGSM Scholarship Fund. It was our lucky day, even though every weather person forecasted rain all day, we had a great, sunny day at Royal Melbourne.”
