10 Years and $1 Million Raised for Students at Golf Outing

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Marking a milestone

More than 200 of Rush’s friends, leadership, staff, faculty and alumni gathered at Silver Lake Country Club in Orland Park, Illinois, on Sept. 21, 2016, to support Rush University students.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Rush University Golf Outing, as well as another important milestone: Counting this year’s proceeds totaling $155,000, this event has officially raised more than $1 million in overall scholarship funding for students from across Rush University.
In the face of rising higher education costs, additional scholarship support will allow Rush to offer more awards to students, reduce their financial burden and attract a diverse student population.
