As a golf professional it is my privelege to head to the golf course every day and make it a fun enviroment for all my members and guests. Often this fun enviroment makes it easy to lose sight of many of the serious issues that plague so many day to day lives. It is our duty as PGA professionals to positively impact our communities whenever possible. The mission of each of the charities that we are supporting this year prioritize the the physical, mental, and emotional health of our communities and make them excellent examples of what Birdies for Charity is all about.
Please help my fellow PGA Professionals and I as we “play for a purpose” during our 10th annual Birdies for Charity event. As children, we are taught that often times the best way to say thank you is to pay it forward. The game of golf has provided me with such wonderful experiences that I’m compelled to use my talents to create better opportunities for today’s youth.
Over the last nine years, our efforts have raised $1.96 million for the children in our community. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $450,000 for this year’s event to benefit JDRF, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Illinois PGA Foundation.
