7th Annual CONLON/Christie’s International Golf Classic raises funds

CONLON/Christie’s International Real Estate raised green on the green this week. On Monday, September 11th, 2017, golfers participated in the 7th Annual CONLON Golf Classic at The Beverly Country Club on Chicago’s South Side. 

Hundreds attended the well-run event, mostly residential and commercial real estate professionals. Unseasonably warm autumn weather put patrons in good spirits as they worked their way through the course, shared a catered meal, and raised money for three wonderful causes. 

The 7th Annual CONLON Golf Classic benefitted the Conlon Wildlife Foundation, Misericordia, and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Conlon Wildlife Foundation bolsters staff capacity at animal rescue centers and wildlife projects. Misericordia offers a community of care for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities. And the Special Operations Warrior Foundation supports post-secondary education for the children of Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty. 

The winning foursome consisted of Tom Kavanaugh, Kevin Caceras, Kevin Weasler, and Glenn Cacioppo. Other winners were:

Closest to the Pin #10 Women—Emily Wilson

Closest to the Pin #10 Men—Cody Sundberg

Long Drive #16 Women— Mary Pat McKeown

Long Drive #16 Men—Dave Dagley

Longest Putt #8—Tony Pigatti

Straightest Drive #5—DB Sweeney + Ellie Whitlock

With such a successful, fun event, the CONLON/Christie’s International family can hardly wait another year until their next Golf Classic!
