Sponsor the 2021 Golf Outing
Interested in sponsoring the 2021 Chicago Illini Club Golf Outing? Check out our different sponsorship opportunities!
The Chicago Illini Club has had the honor of representing the over 250,000 University of Illinois Urbana Champaign alumni in the Chicago area since 1886. Our mission is to support the educational purposes of the University, cultivate friendship among club members, and express loyalty to the University. Our annual golf outing is our sole fundraiser for the year. This year’s outing will be held July 12 at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge. It is not only an enjoyable day of not so serious golf, food, and drinks, but also affords each participant a chance to connect and network with new and old friends. Proceeds from our outing go to scholarships, organizations at the University of Illinois and local charities. We can offer you the opportunity to be seen as a loyal supporter of the Chicago Illini Club by our approximately 105,000 email subscribers and 4000+ Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter followers. All donations will be acknowledged on social media, on our website, in our newsletter, in our golf program booklet and on signage on the golf course.
