    2nd Annual Golf Outing!

    By Chanooka Braves 02/27/2023, 10:00am CST




    We are excited about our 2nd Annual Chanooka Braves Golf Outing on Friday June 9, 2023 at Inwood Public Golf Course. The Chanooka Braves organization is considered the official feeder program for Minooka High School Football, so they are partnering with us to spread the word and be a part of the event. The goal of the event is, first and foremost, to raise money for our youth football and cheer program. These funds help ensure feasible registration fees year after year, the best and safest equipment possible, practice and game fields that are well maintained, and new uniforms. We have already received generous sponsorship support from many local businesses throughout our communities. We are still looking for those interested in golfing to sign up for the event. Attached to this email is the flyer with all of the information about the event and how to get signed up. We are confident you will have a blast! We have many activities planned with great prizes and some awesome silent auction items as well! It is our hope that this event grows every year. We want our past, present, and future Braves and Minooka football players and families to look forward to this event every year. This is a great opportunity to give back to youth programs that have given so much to us! We hope you will consider signing up to golf in the event or spread the word to those that may want to sponsor. If you have any questions, please reach out.
