It began today at 12:30 and will continue on until about 8:00 p.m. Male and female golfers, for a mere $250, will gather at Arrowhead Golf Club located at 26 W151 Butterfield Road in Wheaton, Illinois for the 13th Annual Tee Off to Camp Blackhawk Golf Outing. Anyone and everyone are welcome!
This exciting day includes much more than golf. The event is held each year to help the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago (TEFGC) support its Camp Blackhawk.
If you have never heard of Camp Blackhawk, you are certainly missing out as it is one of the most beneficial camps offered for kids and teens living with epilepsy. Once you meet the children that have had the privilege of attending the week-long retreat, you will discover that it has literally changed their lives, their approach to living and their attitude about their disease.
In order to offer this priceless camp to as many children as possible, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago hosts fundraisers that help offset the cost of their cause. Their biggest, most popular fundraiser of the year is the Golf Outing.
Golfers are invited to enjoy an 18-hole scramble golf game which is then followed by cocktail hour and dinner. The $250 fee includes the golf game, the cart, lunch and a post-golf dinner with complimentary drinks.
Many sponsors get involved as they realize the benefits of their involvement. Thanks to their leadership and charitable acts, more and more children are able to survive and thrive with epilepsy.
If you were unable to attend the event today, there is still time to get involved. You can still send in a donation at any time for this great Camp Blackhawk service that TEFGC provides.
In addition, if you are a thrift shopper, you can benefit and so with the Epilepsy Foundation by you shopping at Savers. This community partner is opening a new Savers location in Franklin Park, Illinois on Thursday, August 29th and they would love for you to stop by.
The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled to take place at 8:45 a.m. The store will open its doors for the first time at 9:00 a.m. The shopping experience at Savers is not an ordinary experience but one that you will want to repeat.
With either one of these great activities, you will be able to benefit yourself and children and adults that would otherwise be left out from normal everyday life experiences. Treat yourself in one fashion or another. TEFGC and all of its recipients will be grateful for your generosity!
