| July 18, 2019

The Teamsters Local 727 Charitable Fund successfully raised more than $30,000 for The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago at its Second Annual Golf Outing.  The Outing, held on June 21 at the White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, was attended by more than 110 golfers.

The day began with a delicious bloody mary bar sponsored by Illinois Advocates and a savory cookout luncheon sponsored by LSV Asset Management, followed by a full round of golf.  Golfers not only had the opportunity to play 18 holes, but also participated in multiple on-course competitions and raffles.  Contest and raffle winners were announced during the Outing’s closing cocktail reception, which was sponsored by Elite Administration and included an open bar and scrumptious appetizers.

The Outing Grand Prize winner went home with a one-night stay at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago, six reserved executive box seats for a day of racing at Arlington International Racecourse, a prize package from Davis Vision that included stylish sunglasses, golf balls, tees, and a golf umbrella, and an exclusive prize package from Dixon Golf.  One lucky raffle winner received four tickets to an upcoming Chicago Cubs game and two Outing attendees took home a set of golf balls all courtesy of Innovative Direct Solutions, while the winners of the “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Pin” contests won a prize package from Davis Vision and gift certificates for therapeutic massages from HomeTown Health.

“Thank you to all of our members and friends who joined us for our Second Annual Golf Outing, and thank you to our many generous sponsors who helped the Charitable Fund to make this year’s Outing a reality,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.

Proceeds from the Outing will assist the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago in providing vital services and assistance to members of our communities during some of their toughest days.  To learn more about the Foundation, or to find out more about Prostate Cancer symptoms, treatments, and research, click here.
