The 30th Annual Edward Foundation Charity Golf Tournament will be held at Cog Hill Golf Club in Lemont on Monday, July 17. The Foundation is the charitable fundraising organization of Edward Hospital.
Dionne Miller, ABC 7 weekend sports anchor, will be the celebrity guest for this year’s outing. Last year, the golf tournament raised $454,000.
This year’s event will be held on three of Cog Hill’s four courses, with a shotgun start for all golfers at 12 noon. Tournament registration and lunch are scheduled from 10 – 11:30AM. A cocktail party and awards presentation will follow the tournament at 5PM.
For more information and to register, visit www.eehealth.org/golf23.
Helicopter Ball Drop and Million Dollar Shootout
A Helicopter Ball Drop and Million Dollar Shootout will be held when play is finished. In the Ball Drop, each $25 chance gives an entrant one numbered golf ball that will be dropped from a helicopter. The person whose golf ball lands closest to or inside the cup will split half of the Ball Drop proceeds with the Edward Foundation.
This event is open to the public. To purchase a chance to win, visit www.eehealth.org/golf23.
In the Million Dollar Shootout, golfers can enter for a chance to be selected as one of three golfers to have a shot at $1 million with a hole-in-one on one of Cog Hill’s par three holes.
