Thanks for Another Successful Tee It Up for Kids Golf Classic!

OAK PARK, IL – On Monday, June 19, 2017, the Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society (OPRF IWS) of hosted the sixth annual Tee It Up For Kids Golf Classic at Riverside Golf Club.

Through the generosity and involvement of sponsors, players and our Society members, OPRF IWS raised close to $40,000. Proceeds help fund comprehensive healthcare for 3,400 under-served children at the IWS Children's Clinic in Oak Park, which provides a pediatric medical home to families from Oak Park, River Forest and 50 surrounding communities.

The day's festivities began with a bagpiper leading over 100 golfers onto the award-winning course. A highlight of the event was the presentation of the Green Jacket Award to Oak Park resident and local businessman John Andrews in recognition of his longtime commitment and support of OPRF IWS. John was joined by his wife, IWS member Dianne, son Eric, daughter-in-law Danyelle and their granddaughter Chloe.

IWS member and event chair Julie McKune thanks all for their generosity and meaningful impact in the lives of the children the IWS Children's Clinic serves. The OPRF IWS Tee It Up For Kids event would not be possible without the generous support of the players and our 2017 sponsors.
