Allison Liljestrand

a senior from Glenbard East High School, will attend the University of Iowa to pursue a degree in Nursing.

The Ed Posh Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Ed Posh, the first head golf professional at the Village Links in Glen Ellyn. Through the years, Ed has created an environment for golfers of all levels to learn and enjoy the game of golf.

The Scholarship Fund raises funds through donations and the annual ED POSH SHOOTOUT GOLF SCRAMBLE TOURNAMENT & DINNER PARTY. This event was held in July of 2018 at the Village Links Golf Course. 100% of the net proceeds of this fundraising event went to the scholarship fund. The organizers and members of the board are all local volunteers. Over the years the ED POSH SHOOTOUT has become a premier local fundraising event. Golf, an outstanding dinner under the stars, music, dancing, auctions, prizes, along with the exciting SHOOTOUT itself, were among the many attractions of this event.
