7th Annual Swinging for the Sisters Golf Outing 2016

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago held their 7th Annual Swinging for the Sisters on May 9, 2016. We had a great turnout this year with 126 golfers participating at the beautiful and scenic Dubsdread Course at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, Il. Golfers enjoyed a full day of golf on a challenging course that once hosted several tournaments including the Western Open and the BMW Championship. This year the weather was a bit challenging as the golfers fought off the rain and cold wind. We want to thank everyone for coming out and braving the cold weather and making this yearly event a success!

Special thanks to George Ferrell of Henry Brothers for participating on our golf committee and to Henry Brothers for being the Presenting Sponsor again this year.

We also want to thank all our sponsors and donors this year for giving and participating. All proceeds benefit St. Jude House and the Madonna Foundation. We look forward to next year's event (and also pray for better weather).
