WHITTINGTON, IL (Sept. 17, 2021) – More than 175 golfers teed off last week at Rend Lake Golf Course for the 41st Annual Rend Lake College Foundation Golf Outing.

This year we had thirteen corporate sponsors, in addition to well over one hundred sponsors at other levels. The weather was perfect and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun,” said Kay Zibby-Damron of the RLC Foundation. “We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.”
