“Dear Ms. Oppenhauser,

On behalf of the students at Saint Ignatius College Prep who are supported by the Tuition Assistance Program, I express my deepest appreciation for your gift through your participation in the 31st Annual Golf Classic.

Last year, the Golf classic raised a record- breaking $110,000 toward financial aid.  Without this critical support, we would not be able to continue our tradition of accepting qualified students regardless of their family’s ability to pay the full cost of tuition.  The spirit of good will and camaraderie at Cog Hill was abundantly evident and the bond of community built that day will provide support for years to come.  The success of the 30th Annual Golf Classic was a result of the many sponsors, dedicated golfers and volunteers who collaborated with us.

We have awarded approximately $4 million in financial aid to over 385 students for the students for the 2016- 2017 academic year, underscoring the importance of the funds raised through the Golf Classic.

We share a dream to allow all students the opportunity to have a Catholic, high- quality education in the Jesuit tradition; that will be realized because of your thoughtfulness and generosity.  Thank you again for helping us to fulfill the mission of Saint Ignatius College Prep.”

Fr. Michael P. Caruso, S.J.
