Thursday, July 17th was a special one! We held our fourth Annual Golf Outing for the first time at the Harborside International Gold Center in Chicago. It was an afternoon full of celebrating and great company as we raised funds to benefit our mission. As golfers like to call it, a hole in one! The event had many enjoyable activities for everyone to participate in. Guests were invited to enjoy a round of golf, a delicious lunch, on-course games with great prizes, fabulous auction items, and most importantly, fun with Imerman Angels. The evening commenced with a special dinner reception with comedian Pat McGann as the honorary guest speaker. The event began at none other than the Shotgun Start on the Starboard Course, which was ranked as the #3 “Best Courses You Can Play” in Illinois by Golfweek in 2014. A special appearance by Blackhawk’s player Bryan Bickell make the afternoon that more memorable.
This special event honored Imerman Angel’s Board of Director Ryan McCain, the Founder and Managing Partner of KMG Private Wealth Management and KMG Accounting. McCain is a testicular cancer survivor and active Imerman Angels Mentor Angel. He is also a member of the Corporate Development team. Other event sponsors that made the event possible included Wells Fargo, Guaranteed Rate, Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar, Stack Wine, The Redhead Piano Bar, Goose Island Beer Co., Chicago Blackhawks and Harborside International Gold Center.
Tickets for individual golfers were available for $250, or $1,000 for a group of four. Proceeds from the event benefitted our mission as we continue to grow the world’s largest database of “Mentor Angels” – volunteer cancer survivors and caregivers trained to provide personalized 1-on-1 support to anyone touched by cancer.
