Chicago Youth Centers (CYC), the largest independent, locally based, multi-site youth services organization in Chicago, will host its 20th Annual Chipping in for Chicago Youth Golf Outing on August 27, 2012 at the premier Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, site of the 1922 U.S. Open and 2010 Western Amateur. This year, CYC will welcome 120 golfers from Chicago’s business and philanthropic community for a round of golf, a silent auction, and an awards dinner. In addition, the golfer lucky enough to win the hole-in-one contest will receive a brand new 2012 Fiat 500, courtesy of Fields Auto Group. Non-golfers are also invited to participate in the event by attending the awards dinner.
Since its founding in 1956, CYC has served more than 200,000 at-risk children and teens at eight neighborhood centers on the south and west sides of Chicago and at Camp Rosenthal, a summer residential camp in Dowagiac, Michigan. Through innovative and effective programming—from Early Childhood Education to College and Career Readiness—CYC is investing in the future of Chicago’s children. Last year, CYC served more than 6,400 youth, parents, and guardians. One-hundred percent of our eighth grade members moved up to ninth grade, one-hundred percent of our high school senior members graduated, and eighty percent of our graduates went on to college.
During the past two decades, CYC’s Chipping in for Chicago Youth Golf Outing has raised more than $1.5 million dollars, ensuring CYC has been able to help Chicago’s youth build the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to succeed. This year’s event hopes to raise more than $100,000.
Golf is limited to 30 foursomes. Sponsorships, foursomes and dinner tickets are still available.
