La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation will present its 14th annual golf classic Monday, Aug. 12, at the La Grange Country Club.

Participants can select either an 8 a.m. or a 1 p.m. shotgun start, and reservations must be made by Aug. 2.

Registration costs $500 for an individual golf slot, or $1,900 for a foursome. The fee includes a continental breakfast, a barbecue buffet for lunch, and dinner and live auction that evening. Those interested in attending just the dinner can do so for $85 a person.

There is also a range of sponsorship opportunities available.

Proceeds from the event will be directed to Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital’s Patient Care Center, and money raised will be matched by a grant from the Community Memorial Foundation.

The country club is at 620 S. Brainard Ave., La Grange. For more information, contact the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation at 708-245-2904.

The support of community members and local organizations has made the annual golf classic one of the foundation’s most important fundraising events, said Brett Skeen, executive director.

“Their involvement helps make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients, people who are coming to the hospital at moments when they are most in need,” Skeen added.

Golf Classic Committee co-chairmen this year are Jeff Kraus and Dr. Luke Sewall.

“With the support of our sponsors and all our golfers, we know this year’s golf outing will prove to be one of the best we’ve had,” Sewall said. “Their support of our hospital’s mission is tremendous.”
