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.
This event has yet to disappoint the participants and sponsors and gives you the opportunity to play alongside 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 celebrity bowling tournament the charity has now exceeded $4 million raised since 1999.
All golf foursomes and individuals receive a round of golf, fore caddies, bbq lunch prior to tee-off, cocktails, heavy hor d’oeuvres, player gift bag, valet parking with bag drop off and access to putting green, driving range and locker room facility. Many contest prizes including longest drive and closest to the pin will be a part of the tournament. If event is rained out donations will have higher write-offs for tax purposes. *Celebrity Guest Appearance subject to change.
