Third Annual Tribune/United Way Golf Outing Takes Philanthropy to the Links


Last month, Tribune Company held its third annual Tribune/United Way Golf Outing, raising over $24,000 for United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. The day began with roughly 100 golfers taking to the links and ended with a dinner and auction involving a live Blackhawks painting by Artbeat Live!

Golfers participated in friendly competitions while on the course, including a wager hole, closest to the pin and longest putt. At hole 8 they were greeted by Tribune Publishing and Chicago Tribune CEO, Tony Hunter, who showed his support for United Way by participating in a “Beat the Boss” closest to the pin contest.

United Way of Metropolitan Chicago would like to thank the Tribune for its long-standing partnership and commitment to providing the resources needed to help build self-sufficiency through creating practical solutions addressing challenges in the areas of education, income and health in the Chicagoland area.

United Way of Metropolitan Chicago would also like to thank A Marketing Resource, Alvarez & Marsal, American Litho, FujiFilm, Turn-Key Solutions and Giordano’s for sponsoring the Tribune/United Way Golf Outing.
