The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago’s 10th annual Swinging for the Sisters Golf Outing was held on May 21st at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont. This year the golfers braved the cold and wet weather to come out and enjoy a round of golf and support the Sisters' ministries. The golfers began the day with breakfast prepared by the staff at Cog Hill. Sister Jeanne Marie Toriskie then welcomed the golfers with a short opening prayer and then wished them good luck as they gathered in their golf carts to begin their round of golf.

After a long day of golfing, the golfers were served a barbecue lunch and a prize raffle was held. All donations received will help support the Sisters and their ministries: Madonna Foundation and St. Jude House. The Sisters would like to thank George Ferrell and William Callaghan Jr. of Henry Bros. Co. for their continued support and being a major sponsor again this year.
