“We are excited to be hosting our golf classic at Sunset Hills Country Club and very excited about the Million Dollar Shoot-Out,” said Tricia Higgins, GSSI Communications and Development Manager.  “We encourage you to come out and support our Girl Scout Golf Classic,” Higgins said, adding, “We are still looking for more golf players and teams and have many wonderful corporate sponsorships still available.”

During the past 27 years, the Girl Scout golf classic has raised more than $825,000 to support girl program development, girl financial assistance and to maintain and improve Girl Scout camps.  GSSI provides a premier Girl Scout Leadership Experience for over 12,400 girls and nearly 5,000 adult volunteers in southern Illinois. 

For 27 years, the Girl Scout golf classic has played an important role in funding girl programs and providing opportunities and financial assistance so all girls can participate in Girl Scouting.  We hope you will help Girl Scouts build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place by becoming a Girl Scout player or sponsor!
