2017 Golf Outing Summary – THANK YOU!!

Our 14th Annual Golf Outing fundraiser was once again a success!!!  We used the event to kick off our new theme slogan for the coming year:  Pay It Forward – Your Kindness Inspires Change

More than 130 golfers were blessed with a warm and sunny end of summer day. As always, the golfers had fun on the course and afterwards at the dinner.

THANK YOU!!  We raised more than $40,000 to help those in need right here in Chicago.  We wish to thank all the generous sponsors, golfers and hard-working volunteers who gave their entire day for this cause.  You truly did “Pay It Forward”!!
