LAKE FOREST / LAKE BLUFF – The Mothers Trust Foundation welcomes players to its 7th Annual “Keeping Kids out of the Rough” golf event, one of two annual fundraisers for the local charity that provides funding for basic needs as well as enrichment opportunities to low-income children and families in Lake County. Since its inception in 1998, Mothers Trust has awarded almost $2.5 million in grants to more than 30,000 children and their families, with a typical grant of $300 – so a little goes a long way! Golfers can feel good that by having fun, they are giving back!
“We have designed our golf outing to set us apart with plenty of great food, beverages, games and prizes as the committee tries to make this the most memorable and fun golf event on the North Shore” said Susan Suhling, executive director of Mothers Trust.
The fun includes a ball drop by the Lake Forest Fire Department, a shot on a par 5 from a ball cannon, and other games to keep players on their toes. The most crazy and colorful outfits will be awarded Loudmouth brand gift certificates. Players can order online before the event and receive 20% off of their purchase. Whether you are a competitive golfer or not, the sentiment is the same when it comes to doing something that is fun and gives back to others at the same time.
So does John Daly drive a Porsche or an Audi? One lucky hole-in-one will get you one of these beautiful cars to drive thanks to the generosity of the folks at The Exchange in Highland Park.
Other major sponsors contributing to this great golf experience include: Ashland Millwork/ Marvin Windows; The Law Office of Douglas E. Zeit; Associated Bank; Lake Forest Bank & Trust Company; the Deublin Company; Pet Factory; Silver Pepper LLC; Steve and Sue Slaughter; and Lawrence P. Neal CPA & Associates, P.C.
Come play hooky with us on Friday, June 16 beginning with lunch at noon and a shot-gun start at 1 p.m. and join the “Loud Crowd”! How can giving be so much fun?
