Children's Memorial Hospital
The Occasion: The supporters of the 50th Annual Children’s Memorial Hospital Pro Amateur Golf Championship marked the half-century milestone the Saturday before the tournament with a fête at an historic country club in Lake Forest.
The Purpose: 500 guests celebrated the record-breaking 216 golfers set to tee off the next Monday.
The VIPs: Founders’ Board members Marcy Brown of Highland Park and Jennifer Grumhaus of Lake Forest co-chaired the Golden Celebration, while John Ferguson and David Gorter, both of Lake Forest, served as chairs of the Men’s Golf Committee.
The End Result: Together, the Golden Celebration and the 2010 Pro Am raised more than $1.6 million to support the Founders’ Board’s $10 million pledge to the Hospital’s Department of Family Services.
