The O’Fallon – Shiloh chamber held their 15th annual Far Oaks Golf Tournament yesterday, September 11th. Far Oaks is located in Collinsville, IL, just North-East of 64 and 159. This is the chambers primary fundraising event, which makes it possible to hold other robust chamber programs and activities within the community. It was a gorgeous day to be outside – upper 70’s, breezy, sunny and there was a great turnout of golfers!
Amy Yan of CompuType It Solutions was there representing the company and working the “Putting Challenge” competition. The competition was over early in the day when Jeff Baskett hit a Hole-In-One, winning the Putting Challenge Event and a $200 Southwest Airline gift card. Way to go Jeff! Lots of other prizes were awarded for events including “Longest Drive” & “Closest to Pin”.
As always, the true goal at chamber events is the pure networking opportunity for business members of the chamber. Building relationships between local businesses not only spurs on more chamber referrals, but it keeps revenue here in the city we all call home. Shop local and remember, people only do business with those that they trust!
The National Shrine of Our Lady Of The Snows catered a fantastic lunch and Outback Steakhouse sponsored a hearty dinner for the golf event. Other sponsors include Lindenwood University, New Horizons Computer Learning Center, Jack Schmitt Cadillac, Wells Fargo and many more.
