WHITTINGTON, Ill. (Sept. 14, 2020) – More than 180 golfers on 31 different teams teed off last week at the 40th Annual Rend Lake College Foundation Golf Outing in an effort to raise funds for the Foundation and the RLC Men’s and Women’s Golf teams.
The outing was held at the Rend Lake Golf Course in Whittington and raises thousands of dollars every year for the Foundation and the teams. With another strong turnout, the community showed continued support once again.
“It was one of the best days of 2020! We honestly anticipated that our revenue might down this year, but it turned out to be the largest tournament in our 40-year history,” said RLC Foundation Chief Executive Officer Kay Zibby-Damron. “Despite COVID and all of the challenges it’s presented, the generosity and kindness of our alumni, friends and local businesses have not wavered, and for that, I’m very grateful. A very special thank you to all of our sponsors, golfers and volunteers that made this event so successful.”
