Friday, March 4, 2022

Promoting the health and well-being of children and adolescents beyond the hospital walls is a critical part of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago’s mission because we know that for most children their zip code impacts their health more than their genetic code. The Founders’ Board is raising funds to support the critical initiatives of the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities, ensuring a brighter future for children in our community and beyond.

Your support of the Founders’ Board Giving Day TODAY will help raise critical funds in support of the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities and rally our community around our mission to provide a healthier future for every child. Funding this important work NOW can change the lifelong trajectories of children, youth and families.

On June 27, amateur foursomes will be paired with golf professionals from 50 prestigious private country clubs across the country for the exciting Golf Championship. Groups of five golfers (four amateurs and one professional) will tee off at Onwentsia Club in either a morning or an afternoon round and will have the opportunity to participate in either the Best Ball or Scramble format. Groups who participate in the Best Ball format will compete for the coveted June Seaman Trophy, named in honor of Mrs. June Seaman, the chair of the first event in 1961. Prizes are also awarded to the second-, third- and fourth-place finishing teams in Best Ball — Net category, and the top-finishing groups in the Scramble and Best Ball — Gross formats. In 2021, the Founders’ Board is delighted to award the Women’s Low Amateur Award for the first time. Thank you for being a steadfast champion of Lurie Children’s.

The Pro Am has a notable history dating back to 1960 when Sissy Wheeler first presented the idea of a pro-amateur golf fundraiser to her fellow members of the hospital’s Founders’ Board (called the Woman’s Board at the time). Little did Mrs. Wheeler know that her idea would inspire the support and involvement of thousands and create a tradition of giving that continues to thrive today, more than half a century later.
