Golf Classic & Dinner

Golf 24 Invite Updated Logo Web

In 1997 a pair of Prairie School trustees, John Gittings and Joe Marino, created the Golf Classic to support The Prairie School Scholarship Fund.

Over the years, the Classic has grown into one of the most successful outings in the country consistently ranked in the top five percent of outings nationwide. The Classic has raised $1.5 million for deserving students who cannot afford Prairie's full tuition.

Held at the Racine Country Club, every player will enjoy a day of golf, games, and prizes! Not a golfer? Purchase a dinner ticket and meet up with us at the end of the day for cocktail hour, games, fantastic food, and terrific company – all in support of our students!
