Saint Xavier University (SXU) will host its 21st Annual Golf Classic today, Tuesday, Aug. 1 at Silver Lake Country Club, 14700 South 82nd Avenue in Orland Park. Participants will enjoy 18-holes of golf, breakfast, lunch, dinner with a comedy show, all while raising funds for student scholarships!
Special guest and emcee is Jim Flannigan, whose quick wit and smart humor have made him a mainstay at the top comedy clubs around the country including Zanies, The Improv, The Laugh Factory and Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club in Las Vegas. In 2016, he performed at some of the biggest comedy festivals in the country including Gilda’s LaughFest and The Great American Comedy Festival, honoring the late Johnny Carson. He has appeared on ABC, WGN and WCIU-TV and co-hosts the official Chicago White Sox podcast, The Cycle.
“Our annual Golf Classic is a great way to enjoy a day with friends and colleagues and, most importantly, raise scholarship dollars for deserving and talented SXU students,” said Associate Vice President for University Advancement John Bass. “Last year, we saw more than 140 golfers attend from the Chicagoland area to help us raise over $110,000; we are so fortunate to have the support from alumni, friends, corporate sponsors and local communities!”
