BACC 31st Annual Golf Classic at Wynstone
The Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) hosted its 31st Annual Golf Classic at The Club at Wynstone, 1 S. Wynstone Dr., North Barrington, on Monday, July 17. The event drew nearly 100 golfers, more than 30 sponsors and a host of volunteers to the championship Jack Nicklaus course to network, golf and raise money for the Chamber’s Lauren Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is named after Lauren Brown, a lovely young woman who worked for the Chamber for several years and lost her battle with cancer at the age of 29.
The BACC Golf Classic is a scramble that includes contests, games, a 19th Hole Celebration dinner, and prizes. A portion of the proceeds support the BACC scholarship fund. Each year the Chamber awards scholarships to students attending a college, university of trade or vocational school.
During the Golf Classic Chamber members promoted their businesses with exclusive hole sponsorships, tee sponsorships, and gift bag and raffle item donations. Golfers enjoyed the tastings, games, and giveaways hosted by the sponsors while building relationships on the golf course. Some of the main sponsors for the event included Idealease, Inc., Lexus of Arlington and The Garlands of Barrington.
