WINFIELD, Ill., August 19, 2011 – More than 250 golfers, joined by PGA professionals Curt Byrum and Chris Smith, tested their skills on Medinah Country Club Championship Course #3 and Course #1 to raise funds for the CDH Foundation on Monday, June 27. In total, more than $340,000 was raised from the day’s event and activities primarily for breast health detection and treatment.
“Early detection and treatment is key to combating breast cancer,” said event organizer Holly Kulikowski of the CDH Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to have had 73 sponsor-partners this year who came together to help ensure that the women in our lives have access to the latest screening technology to fight this deadly disease and other worthy causes.”
Two very special guests were on the course this year, competing against golfers who were up to the challenge. Chicago football champions from 1985, Otis Wilson and Dan Hampton shot against players, posed for pictures and signed autographs.
The post-golf dinner program included an auction with premiere golf and sports event opportunities, including a golf trip to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon.
