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.

History

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.

Impact

All proceeds from this year’s event will support the Founders’ Board’s newest funding commitment: a $5 million gift to support the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities. The funds raised align directly with the Magoon Institute’’s highest priorities: helping children thrive in the communities where they live, love, learn and play.

Promoting the health and well-being of children and adolescents beyond the hospital walls is a critical part of our mission. For decades, Lurie Children's experts have partnered with community organizations throughout the city to reach youth where they live, learn and play and help them thrive. Now, with the support of philanthropy, we are excited to elevate this important work by launching the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities.

Named for our previous President & CEO, the Magoon Institute will continue his 23-year legacy of unwavering commitment to pediatric health within the community context. It will serve as the hub for all community-focused initiatives at Lurie Children’s, expanding the efforts of the Healthy Communities program that was established in 2017. We will continue to build strong collaborations with community organizations and facilitate community-engaged outreach and research initiatives to advance and implement evidence-informed child and adolescent health programs and practices.

Lurie Children’s programs and services directly benefiting from recent Pro Am proceeds include: Medical Ethics; Perinatal Origins of Disease, Center for Pediatric Cancer and Blood Diseases; Epilepsy Center; Division of Neurology; Division of Neonatology; Division of Endocrinology; Section of Pediatric, Adolescent and Maternal HIV Infection; and Department of Family Services.
