We hope that everyone is having a great summer! LG-PR is excited to share about our eventful and golf filled summer season. With a grand total of three golf events in 2014 alone, we have been hard at work ensuring that each event went on without a hitch.
Our first event was held at the famous Medinah Country Club on May 27th where LG-PR provided media support for the fifth annual Medinah Patriot Day Golf Outing. The fundraiser benefits the Illinois Patriot Education Fund (IPEF) whose mission is to provide educational financial assistance to support Illinois military families. Volunteers gathered the night before at Eaglewood Resort and Spa where IPEF founder, Mark Slaby, went over the day’s itinerary and pumped us up for the important cause. The successful day was filled with celebrity appearances, golf, a silent auction, Chicago Police Department bagpipes, lunch ceremony, and dinner reception.
The Jarrett Payton Foundation hosted its 3rd annual golf outing at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club in Lemont where LG-PR had a hand in the entire planning and event process. The event was kicked off with breakfast and a shotgun start before golfers took to the course. Throughout the day, Argus Brewery offered up some of Jarrett’s own beer and golfers were given the chance to buy raffle tickets for some great prizes. This year, Smuckers sponsored an exciting helicopter ball drop in which three winners were awarded cash prizes for their generous donations. Other highlights included a silent and live auction, a lunch buffet, and an inspiring message about the importance of the JPF programs by Jarrett Payton himself.
Ruffled Feathers was the site of our third and final golf outing of the summer hosted by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Will County. LG-PR was proud to manage and support the Second Annual Golf for the Child Classic that benefits abused and neglected children in the foster care system of Will County. The fun and successful day included a meet and greet with Jarrett Payton during breakfast, on-course games, free drinks courtesy of Argus Brewery, an open bar cocktail reception during the silent and live auction, a full luncheon buffet, goodie bags for participants, and much more.
