Registration for the afternoon flight will begin at 11:30 am with a 1 pm tee time.

Prizes will be awarded to winners of challenges on each of the 18 holes during an evening reception from 6 to 8 pm in the clubhouse. Prizes include gift certificates, furniture, St. Louis Cardinals baseball tickets, Chicago Bulls basketball tickets, Illinois football tickets, NASCAR tickets, and outdoor living/patio items.

Additionally, the lucky winner of a raffle will win a seven day/six night trip to Maui, Hawaii. Tickets for this raffle can be purchased for $10 each during the Golf Benefit, or two for $10 from the Foundation office prior to Friday. You need not be present at the reception to win. A note of special thanks is extended to Doug and Tracey McCord for the generous donation of their Hawaii home.
