Balestrieri Sponsors 2021 Carthage Golf Open

On Monday, June 28, Balestrieri headed east to the Kenosha Country Club to golf in the 2021 Carthage Golf Open. Company President Ken Balestrieri, Field Manager Seum Ladarom, and valued business partners took to the course for eighteen holes. The total revenue for the day exceeded $70,000 raised for the college’s athletics programs, with Balestrieri supporting the cause via our golf foursome and hole sponsorship.

Said Ladarom, “It was a great event, and it gets better each year we attend. The staff is so friendly and empathetic. We enjoyed seeing players from the Carthage College golf team out on the course. We all enjoyed the event very much.”

Below are some quick facts from

  • Carthage’s science center, student union, athletic and recreation center, and numerous residence halls have all been constructed or newly renovated in the last 15 years.
  • Carthage plants between 50 and 75 new trees every year from a variety of species.
  • Abraham Lincoln was an early Trustee of the College, and U.S. Secretary of State John Hay was a Carthage alum.
