Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce Holds Successful Golf Outing(Oak Lawn, IL) — On Wednesday, July 13th, the Oak Lawn Chamber of Commerce held its annual Golf Outing which is the Chamber’s largest fundraiser. We would like to extend our sincere thank you to this year’s Major Sponsor, Oak Lawn Bank and Trust. Oak Lawn Bank & Trust has been this event’s Major Sponsor since 2017. One hundred fifteen golfers came out to enjoy the links at Stony Creek Golf Course in Oak Lawn.
The day began with a BBQ lunch & networking followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 PM. Lunch was sponsored by Advocate Christ Medical Center & Penny Lane Schools. Our cart sponsor this year was Republic Bank. On the course, golfers were treated to four “watering holes” courtesy of Hilton Chicago/Oak Lawn, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Old National Bank and PuroClean Disaster Mitigation. After a sunny day on the course, golfers came back to the clubhouse for cocktails sponsored by Webb Chevy. Dinner was provided by The Copper Top and sponsored by American Family Insurance (Don Murphy), Complete Vision Care (Dr. Sandra Bury), Ghosien’s European Autohaus (Ahmad Ghosein), THREE20 Media (Natasha Williams) and the Village of Oak Lawn. Dessert was donated by Nothing Bundt Cakes.
The Chamber received overwhelming support from its members and many Oak Lawn businesses in the form of sponsorships, gift certificates and raffles. We had 47 Hole Sponsors this year which provided a great opportunity to network with each and every golfer.
The foursome with the Low Gross score included Steve Loulousis, George Les, Jerry Hurckes & Bill Salerno representing Les Brothers & Prime Time Restaurants. The foursome with the Low Net score included Ed Gutierez, Lindsey Kneubuhler, Peter Delapena & John Kutty representing Advocate Christ Medical Center. Each foursome was awarded a traveling trophy, and a gift certificate for complimentary golf donated by Stony Creek and gift certificates donated by Palermo’s on 95th and the The Hilton Oak Lawn.
Jeff Renzetti won Longest Drive. Mike Hartman & Mary Pat Coughlin got Closest to the Pin. Prizes for the golf contests were gift certificates donated by Palermo’s on 95th and The Hilton Oak Lawn.
