What a day! The Jerry Roper Golf Outing

Our First Annual Jerry Roper Corporate Golf Outing was a huge success, this Tuesday, at The Glen Club. It was an amazing day of golf, camaraderie, and networking in honor of a man who had a lasting impact on our business community. The morning rain stopped just in time, and we can’t help but think Jerry had a hand in that. We are thrilled his wife, Carol, and Jerry Jr. helped us celebrate his legacy. The winning foursome was the CIBC team with a score of 60 (12 under par). Jim Marshall of MB Financial hit the longest drive, and Steve Selcke of AT&T hit the drive Closest-to-Pin.

Thank you to everyone who took part. Extra special thanks to United, BDO, First Midwest Bank, Wintrust, AT&T, Aon, and all our hole sponsors!
