WHITTINGTON, Ill. (Aug. 10, 2020) — Get ready to tee off. Now is the time to sign up for the 40th Annual Rend Lake College Foundation Golf Outing.
The annual outing, held at Rend Lake Golf Course in Whittington, will take place Thursday, Sept. 10. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. with lunch starting at 11 a.m. A shotgun start will begin at noon.
While things may look a little different this year on the course due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the RLC Foundation expects another successful event for this low-risk activity.
“We are taking extra precautions this year to ensure we have a safe (and fun!) event. The safety of our players, as well as our staff, is our number one priority,” said RLC Foundation Assistant Director Kelsey Page. “There will be a few differences this year due to social distancing, but we plan to have a fun day with our friends! This outing is the perfect way to cap off the summer.”
The outing is a six-person golf scramble and costs $125 per person with $50 of that fee being tax-deductible. To ensure the safety of all players and volunteers, the Foundation team asks that players pre-pay with check or credit card. Players can pay online at rlc.edu/give-now. Checks should be payable to the RLC Foundation. The entry fee includes a player gift, green fees, riding carts, complimentary lunch, refreshments on the course, hole games, prizes to be awarded and to-go snacks at the end of the event.
If you are a business or corporation looking to get in on the fun, there are various levels of sponsorship available. Those include a $150 Hole Sponsor, $500 Award Sponsor, $750 Refreshment Sponsor, $1,000 19th Hole Sponsor, $1,000 Lunch Sponsor and $1,500 Corporate Sponsor.
Proceeds directly support RLC Foundation student scholarships and the Warriors and Lady Warriors Golf teams. Over the past four decades, the annual outing has helped raise thousands of dollars each year for these causes.
The entry deadline for the outing is Thursday, Sept 3. A rain date is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 17 if necessary. For more information, contact Kelsey Page at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1324 or . To complete an entry form, visit rlc.edu/foundation/special-events/golf-outing.
