DINNER ON THE BLUFF

Philanthropic Impact

More children than ever are surviving congenital heart disease, but the ongoing care they need impacts every area of their lives. Lurie Children’s goal for their patients is not just to live longer lives, but richer, fuller lives—and we have the compassion, expertise and determination to ensure that every child thrives. Lurie Children’s Heart Center is poised to shape the next advances in pediatric cardiac medicine. Success will be measured not by new breakthroughs, but by the children who will experience better health, a higher quality of life and a brighter future.

All funds raised at the 64th Annual Pro Amateur Golf Championship will support the Founders’ Board $4 million commitment to Lurie Children's Heart Center.

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. 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.
