We’re excited to be back at Schaumburg Golf Club and Chandler’s Chophouse to offer our sponsors and golfers an amazing experience. Golf includes an 18-hole course with cart, lunch, dinner, and the opportunity to compete in contests like longest drive, closest to the pin and the $10,000 putting contest. Check-in for the golf outing begins at 9 a.m., as well as putting contest qualification rounds. Golfers will tee off at a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Click here to register or sponsor the golf outing.

When you head to the village of Schaumburg’s Septemberfest festival over the Labor Day weekend, support the students of School District 54 and the D54 Foundation by parking at Collins Elementary School. For the low, low price of $10, you can park all day on Saturday or Sunday at Collins, located at 407 S. Summit Drive in Schaumburg just down the street from the festival. Then come back on Monday, Labor Day, and purchase food in the Foundation booth on nonprofit day.
