CAAEL golf outing benefits at-risk students in Chicago area

It was a picture perfect summer day for the the Chicago Area Alternative Education League’s annual Lorenzi Golf Day on July 19 at Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Club in LaSalle.

The outing attracted more than 40 golfers who came to enjoy a day of fun while supporting the nonprofit organization, which provides a full spectrum of academic and athletic programs to the Chicago area’s most at-risk youth.

Ed Connelly, a longtime CAAEL supporter, raised the excitement bar with a hole-in-one shot. The afternoon wrapped up with a nail-biter sudden-death hole for the championship. Raffle prizes include Home Plate Club White Sox tickets, signed Blackhawks items and a golfing foursome.

The event raised $3,000 for CAAEL.
