ELA Annual Golf Outing

"Supporting Our Military Heroes"

On the morning of September 11, 2015, East Lake Academy held its’ 14th Annual Family & Friends Golf Outing at the Deerpath Golf Course in Lake Forest. The proceeds of the Annual Golf Outing provide funding for scholarships afforded to military families in the North Shore area who desire for their children to attend East Lake Academy.  This year East Lake Academy raised just under $100,000 for military scholarships and operational costs.

East Lake Academy maintains its unprecedented reputation of achieving almost 100% participation from its school families for the fund raising event.  Some of this year’s 74 sponsors include, The Federal Savings Bank, Netrix, Loeber Motors, Sun Trust, First American Bank, Credit Plus, Power Solutions International and Lindemann Chimney Company.
