Glen Carbon, Illinois – Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois (GSSI) held its 27th Annual Girl Scout Golf Classic at Sunset Hills Country Club on May 9.  Rain and wind didn’t dampen the spirits of golfers at the Girl Scout golf classic as players helped raise $27,500.

“This was our first time holding our Girl Scout golf classic at Sunset Hills Country Club,” said Jill Gobert, GSSI Director of Development.  “What a nice course and our players had a great time.  On behalf of our 13,000 girl members and 4,500 adult volunteers I would like to thank our corporate sponsors, donors, supporters and players for another successful golf classic,” Gobert added.
