Alpha Tau Chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho Golf Outing Philanthropy

Alpha Tau chapter of Alpha Gamma Rho at WIU has had a golf outing philanthropy in the spring for the past seven years. With spring 2015 being our 7th annual we decided to donate the money we raised to Reagan Shippert’s educational fund. Reagan Shippert is the daughter of one of the Alpha Tau chapters Alumni. We were fortunate enough to raise four thousand dollars for this special cause. There were close to fifty sponsors who helped sponsor this event. Sponsors receive flags with their name on it after the outing is complete. During the event the flags get placed at every hole and at the club house. This is one way we make sure each sponsor gets recognized at the golf outing.

We cook a great lunch including rib-eye steaks for the golf players. With more than 16 teams in in the golf outing and around 60 golfers we had a great turnout even in the rain this year.The winning team at the event earn their entry team donation of $40 back. We also hand out other prizes such as hats and golf balls with our raffle we hold at the event. This event is held at the Gold Hills Golf Club located at 10980 East 900th Street Colchester, IL.

So spring 2016 I encourage you to attend or sponsor the upcoming golf outing for Alpha Gamma Rho.  The date is to be announced early on in the year of 2016. For more information contact our vice noble ruler of activities Trent Zwicker at tj-zwicker@wiu.edu.
