This year’s 17th Annual Celebrity Golf Outing & 12th Annual Women’s Tennis Tournament is scheduled for Monday June 20, 2016.
We continue our commitment with Keshet (which serves children and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities) as a beneficiary of the event. We are especially proud to announce a relationship with Special Olympics Illinois as a beneficiary. Each year, Special Olympics provides opportunities for over 22,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Illinois to compete in 19 different sports at no cost to them or their families.
Many current & former Chicago sports celebrities and media personalities participating in the fun-filled event.
More than 56 million or about one in every five Americans have some type of disability, according to the Census Bureau. Autism, for example, affects one in 50 children. In order to accomplish the task of finding resources that enable Special Kids Network to execute its mission, the charity and its executive board created the Celebrity Golf Outing and Women’s Tennis Tournament. This tournament has been the backbone to our fundraising and with the additions of our casino night and Chicago Bears players bowling tournament the charity has now exceeded $4 million raised since 1999.
For more information on how to get involved please email us or contact the offices at 847.282.3171 and speak with Trevor Brody. Currently we are looking for volunteers to help with the Live/Silent Auction, Registration, On Course volunteers and something everyone can do….spreading the word to your friends and family.
