2020 Swing for Scholars Golf Tournament

Swing for Scholars is back!
Chicago Scholars hosts 2020 “Swing for Scholars” golf tournament on September 28, 2020, at Naperville Country Club. The event is sold out but through a social media contest and virtual donations, participants are able to fundraise for the organization’s mission to empower Chicago’s academically ambitious first-generation and low-income students to become the city’s next generation of leaders.
Supporters of the college access and leadership development nonprofit can also participate virtually by donating online and sharing photos via social media now through September 30 by posting photos playing golf, mini-golf, or Topgolf using the tags @ChicagoScholars and #SwingforScholars on Facebook, Twitter and / or Instagram. Participants in the Virtual Swing For Scholars will be entered for the chance to win a NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill.
Those wishing to donate can enter the giveaway beginning at $25 for three entries, $50 for seven entries and $100 for 15 entries. Donations exceeding $100 will receive an additional four entries for every $25 until it reaches the maximum 50 entries.
Additionally, this year, Manny Sanchez, a Chicago Scholars founding board member and partner at Chicago’s largest minority owned law firm Sanchez Daniels & Hoffman, and his wife, Pat Pulido Sanchez, are proud to honor two Scholars with the “Manny & Pat Pulido Sanchez Legacy Scholarship Fund.” The two students who are receiving the Scholarship are Priscilla Pulido and Cairo Yepez. Priscilla is attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she studies Finance & Banking. Cairo is starting college at Columbia University in New York City and is currently undecided on his major.
