G.O.L.F. is the best! There is so much hard work behind the scenes from people who receive nothing but goodwill for their efforts, that turns into a tremendous event filled with golf, laughs, fun, and most importantly donations for deserving, underprivileged kids. This organization is truly incredible and gives so much back to the community through Fr. Smith.

Wonderful organization that raises money for students from throughout the Chicago-land area to attend college. They do this through amazing events such as the annual golf tournament, a super bowl raffle, and a bar fundraising event. Always a fun time when supporting G.O.L.F!
