Fore the Macs
Playing it FOrward Golf Outing

Thank you to all the alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who Tee'd our Mighty Macs up for success at our Fore the Macs: Playing it Forward Golf Outing on Thursday, August 24, 2023! Even during the extreme heat, our Mighty Mac community never fails to support our Macs! The golf outing raises money for the Tradition of Excellence Scholarship and tuition assistance, and was more successful than ever! Thank you for continuing to support the mission of Mother McAuley, so we can remain an exceptional institution of learning for young women across the Chicagoland area and beyond.

Caring Heart Award

The Caring Heart Award pays tribute to alumna Caroline Griffin ‘12. Caroline was a member of the McAuley Golf Team. She also was a heart transplant recipient who never let her congenital heart condition get in the way of enjoying life. While a sophomore at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, Caroline passed away as a result of ongoing heart issues. Her courage and perseverance in the face of hardship can be found in this year’s Caring Heart Award recipients, Lemolade L2L/Morgan Ingersoll Winters '03 and Nikki Harrington.

Caroline’s mother, Georgina Byrnes Griffin ‘76, and sister, Courtney Griffin ‘08, presented the award at the After Par-Tee!

2023 Recipients

Lemolade was founded in 2021 by friends Morgan Ingersoll Winters '03 and Nikki Harrington. The business began with the goal of creating comfortable, classic clothes that carried positive, optimistic messaging. Initially intended for children, it was clear that adults were just as interested (if not more) in this same idea.

Founded on the principle that life is for celebrating, Lemolade clothing celebrates everything from birthdays to holidays, home-town pride to school spirit, weddings to babies and much more! They also recognize that life is bound to hand us lemons, sour or sweet. Lemolade celebrates those turning life's Lemons to Lemolade on a daily basis through their L2L initiative. 

Lemons to Lemolade (L2L) is how they champion causes that reflect their mission. Throughout the year Lemolade releases limited edition apparel to celebrate organizations that embrace optimism, empower positivity and focus on turning life's lemons into sweet Lemolade. Since their inception in 2021, Lemolade has donated over $50,000 to these amazing organizations and community members who are making the world a better place.
