Rockford Chamber of Commerce Annual Scholarship Golf Outing Success

The White Insurance Agency golf team took first place at the 24th Annual Scholarship Golf Outing

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce hosted the 24th Annual Scholarship Golf Outing on Thursday, July 25 at Candlestone Golf Resort with 120 golfers and had great success!

Each year the Chamber hosts this golf outing to raise funds for the RCC Scholarship Fund. In 2019, the Chamber awarded four $1,500 scholarships to graduating seniors. With the help of this year’s Golf Outing, the Chamber hopes to provide more support through this program.

Linda Southwick, Executive Director of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce, states “This outing has helped support students pursuing both academics and trades after high school. The Chamber strives to continue this program and help students reach their dreams.”

The 2019 scholarship winners were present at the golf outing and expressed gratitude to all the attendees for their contributions. The 2019 Scholarship awardees were Catherine Vancil, Dwight Hua, Evan Coberly, and Connor White.

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all of the attendees, volunteers, raffle prize donations, and sponsors for making this event a success again this year. A special thank you to our Platinum Sponsor: RE/MAX United; Gold Sponsors: Farm Bureau Insurance – Sean Black and Kelley Obenauf Agencies, and Mika Meyers PLC; and Silver Sponsors: Budget Blinds of Rockford, and Bella Vista Family Eyecare.
