| July 13, 2018

On July 6, 2018, more than 110 golfers came together at White Pines Golf Club to raise nearly $17,000 at the First Annual Teamsters Local 727 Charitable Fund Golf Outing.

Despite a cold and stormy initial outing date, the rescheduled golf outing saw prime golfing weather with clear blue skies, ideal temperatures, and moderate wind.

Golfers not only had the opportunity to play 18 holes of golf, but also participated in multiple on-course competitions and raffles.  The winners of the outing went home with four tickets to the upcoming Cubs vs. Cardinals game at Wrigley, while the winners of the “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Pin” contests took away a new set of golf balls and gift certificates to local area restaurants.  One lucky raffle winner received a one-night stay at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and an assortment of additional prizes.

“Thank you to all the golfers who joined us, the sponsors who supported us, and all those that made our very first golf outing such a success,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 727.  “We’re already looking forward to next year’s outing and hope to see everyone there.”

“We are thrilled to have had such an outpouring of support for our first outing and honored to contribute to the work of the Standing Tall Charitable Foundation,” added Anthony Wendel, President of the Teamsters Local 727 Charitable Fund.  “We hope to continue to grow this event in the future and raise even more funds for this fantastic organization.”

Proceeds from the outing will assist the Standing Tall Charitable Foundation in providing scholarships to high school, college, and trade school students in need.  For more information, visit the Standing Tall Charitable Foundation by clicking here.
