Annual Lunch 2013
Union League Club of Chicago - February 28, 2013
Harborside International Golf Center
June 12, 2012
The Bond Club of Chicago Field Day 2012 took place at the Harborside International Golf Center. Thank you to all of our members and guests who came out to join in on the festivities! This year's outing was memorable because it was at a new golf course. The beautiful course was situated on the shores of Lake Michigan and in the distance was the skyline of our great city.
Thank you to this year's sponsors for their contributions, as the event could NOT have been such a success.
