This annual fundraiser raises money for the Tradition of Excellence Scholarship at Mother McAuley. Because of your generosity last year, we were able to award 87 members of the class of 2025 with a $1,000 Tradition of Excellence Scholarship. We need your help to support just as many - or more - families this year!
GET READY! Check-in and pre-golf warm-up
TEE OFF! All golfers will be assigned a starting hole at check-in and will play a round of nine holes
CELEBRATE! Head inside for our After Par-tee and enjoy a light dinner, 3-hour open bar, and short program where we'll honor our Caring Heart Award recipients, members of the Frosty Walk!
In addition to joining us for the event, you can help make it possible for young women to experience the Lifetime Advantage of a McAuley education by assisting financially with a sponsorship.
All sponsors will receive signage on the course, placement on our website, emails, and on the digital billboard in front of McAuley, shout outs on our social media pages, in our annual report, and in our Winter 2021-22 Inscape.
Hit the links at some of Chicagoland's most prestigious golf courses by entering our Fore the Macs Golf Raffle. We will pull 8 winners, one for each of the following golf courses. Winners receive a threesome to play 18 holes with a member at the club. The grand prize winner will be pulled first, followed by the other courses in order below.
Tickets are 1 for $100 or 6 for $500
Tickets will also be available for sale at the golf outing. Winners will be selected on August 26, 2021 at 8:00pm.
Mother McAuley will present the Caring Heart Award in celebration of the spirited life of Caroline Griffin, a member of the Mother McAuley Class of 2012. Caroline showed great courage and perseverance in the face of hardship and brought light to all around her. These same qualities can be seen in the 2021 recipients, the members of the Frosty Walk.
The Frosty Walk is an outdoor winter event organized to honor the spirit of Darlene Whirity Frost '81 (late wife of Michael Frost and mother of Lauren Frost Stull ‘08, Colleen Frost Piko ‘10, Kara Frost ‘12 & Emily Frost ‘17). All proceeds from the Frosty Walk are donated to the Mulliganeers to provide financial support to families in need in the greater Chicago area.
With proceeds from the 2020 Fore the Macs Golf Raffle, the alumnae office awarded $1,000 Tradition of Excellence Scholarships to 87 members of the Class of 2025. Your assistance helps make the dream of a Mother McAuley education a reality for many families. Thank you for continuing to support the mission of Mother McAuley and all that our history and heritage commands so we remain an exceptional center of learning for young women across Chicagoland.
"Thank you for selecting me to receive the Tradition of Excellence Scholarship, supporting me, and assisting with my family's tradition of excellence at Mother McAuley. It is continued support, kindness, and generosity from alumnae like you that make a difference for students like me." -Tradition of Excellence Recipient, Class of 2025
"Thank you so much for donating towards this scholarship. The Tradition of Excellence Scholarship helps my parents out financially with their decision to send me to a private school. It means a lot to me because I come from a long line of strong, confident, successful women who graduated from Mother McAuley, and I am proud to continue the tradition of being a Mighty Mac." -Tradition of Excellence Recipient, Class of 2025
