In light of the current events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interest of the health and wellbeing of all in the Lurie Children’s family, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Dinner on the Bluff celebration, and to postpone our 60th annual Pro Amateur Golf Championship to Saturday, September 12, 2020.
The Founders’ Board hosts a number of annual signature events, all of which raise significant funding to help promote the most critical hospital initiatives and research. Proceeds from this year’s events will support our three-year $7.5 million commitment to New Frontiers in Pediatric Medicine and Research.
