The 12th Links Technology Cup was one for the books!
The Links Technology Cup was yet another success this year. On August 14th around 150 golfers played 18 holes of golf and took part in different contests on each hole. All participants helped raise money for the Schaumburg Park Foundation. Proceeds go towards recreation scholarships and other projects of the Schaumburg Park Foundation. Recent Foundation projects have included supporting Bison’s Bluff Nature Playground, the Meineke Park Challenge Course and the soon-to-be addition of a pollinator garden at Spring Valley Nature Center.
Our very own, Jim Burke and his buddies Brian Bieschke, Tony LaFrenere and Bob Curran won the tournament altogether. It was an extra sweet victory when the former champion and brother-in-law, Bob VanValkenburg, handed off the trophy.
Sponsors of the event included Schaumburg Bank & Trust and Chandler’s. “Taste on the Tee" vendors included Beerhead Bar & Eatery, California Pizza Kitchen, Chicago Marriot Schaumburg, Church Street Brewing Company, Costco, Granite City Food & Brewery, Jimmy John’s, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Moretti’s Ristorante & Pizzeria, Par Logistics, Pollyanna Brewing Company, PRP Wine International, Relish Catering Kitchen, Village Tavern & Grill and WT Group. All sponsors brought entertaining activities, delicious food, and drinks, making it a memorable day for our participants.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored, golfed and participated in this marvelous event!
