PRESIDENT'S SCHOLARSHIP GOLF OUTING
The Village of Richton Park and The Friends of Richton Park Foundation is excited to announce the return of the annual President’s Scholarship Golf Outing. We have worked closely with the Ravisloe’s Country Club to ensure that this event follows Governor s and the Illinois Department of Public Health Safety Guidelines. We want to make certain that this outing will be safe for all who attend. We will be hosting this year's outing on Friday, June 11th, 2021, at the Ravisloe Country Club located at 18231 S. Park Avenue, Homewood, IL 60430.
The purpose and mission of the President’s Scholarship Golf Outing is to serve as a scholarship fund to reward and promote life-long learning opportunities for Richton Park students who exhibit academic achievement, exceptional character, and a zest for life.
Bill Fleming was a Richton Park resident who was instrumental in sponsoring, and promoting the President’s Scholarship Golf Outing. The Bill Fleming Scholarship, first awarded in 1998, was started to promote and encourage academic achievement among high school students by awarding an annual scholarship to a graduating senior residing in Richton Park. The scope of the award was later expanded to include adults desiring to continue education.
In the past two years, we raised 25,000 dollars and awarded 18 recipients thanks to generous contributions. I want to thank all of those who have participated in the past and welcome the newcomers. I hope you will be able to join us and provide a monetary donation to support our youth.
Your support is vitally important to this event's success, and your tax-deductible sponsorship is much appreciated. Checks should be made payable to Friends of the Village of Richton Park. If you have any questions, please contact Parks & Recreation Director Ashley Turner at (708) 753 -8800 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you on the green!
