12th Annual Swinging for the Sisters
Golf Outing 


The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago held their 12th annual Swinging for the Sisters Golf Outing on June 16, at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club in Lemont. There was a great turnout this year as 110 golfers attended. 

The golfers began the day with breakfast prepared by the staff at Ruffled Feathers. They then lined up in their golf carts to get ready to go to their assigned starting hole. Sister M. Bernadette Bajuscik, General Minister of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago joined by Sister M. Francis Clare Radke, thanked the golfers for participating in the event and then wished them good luck. After a long day of golf, the golfers were served lunch and won prizes in a raffle and money in the split-the-pot contest. All donations received will help support the Sisters and their ministries.

The Sisters thank all who participated, volunteered, and the following generous sponsors and donors:
