The event honors Adam Kausak, who died in 2002 at age 15 of cardiac arrest from a genetic heart disorder called Long QT Syndrome, which affects the electrical activity of the heart. A person with the disorder is at risk of loss of consciousness, cardiac arrest, and sudden death. ADAMS Night is a fundraiser from which proceeds are used to buy and place automatic external defibrillators at community facilities. Visit or call (847) 548-7519.
