Benedictine University is sponsoring an auction that will provide the winner and his or her foursome two hours of golf with the legendary Lee Trevino, who went from earning a few dollars by finding golf balls to help support his mother, sisters and grandfather to PGA tour money leader at the age of 31 and one of golf's flashiest showmen.

Trevino is headlining the 17th Annual President's Invitational Golf Outing hosted by Benedictine University on Monday, June 27 at Cantigny Golf in Wheaton.

Four lucky golfers will have the opportunity to shoot golf with Trevino. However, bidding ends Thursday, February 10. To submit a bid, go to www.ben.edu/community/events/golf/auction.cfm.
