Drives for Education Golf OutingFall, 2019 – Exact Date TBD
Deerfield Golf Club
This year's golf outing was a tremendous success for all who were involved! It was the vision of the Alumni Board to provide a fun day on the golf course, as well as to ensure that the event funds scholarships for students in need. We accomplished that, in large part due to the generous support by our many sponsors and participants. We look forward to holding the "Drives for Education" golf outing again in the Fall of 2019, and will provide specific details as the date draws closer.
We can’t wait "fore" next year!
