Kenneth Young Center's 27th annual Golf Outing will be Thursday, Aug. 7, at the Bloomingdale Golf Club, 181 Glen Ellyn Road, in Bloomingdale. Golfers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in the fundraiser.

Attendees of the golf outing can enjoy a morning of golf, games, lunch, raffles and a silent auction. Funds raised for the event will benefit vital mental health and senior services. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available.

Kenneth Young Center's mission is to help people feel good, do better and find solutions. The annual golf outing supports this mission by helping to raise the funds necessary to deliver services to individuals living in Northwest suburban Cook County. Services include support groups, individual therapy, employment training, case management and in-home support for seniors. Kenneth Young Center strives to help people live more fulfilled, happy, productive and independent lives.

Last year's event drew in a number of prominent community leaders and key corporate personnel. The outing exceeded expectations by raising over $40,000.

"Kenneth Young Center's golf outing is an excellent opportunity for business owners and other professionals to network with potential clients and customers while increasing their brand's visibility within the community," explained Fran Geraci, KYC's corporate and business relations coordinator.

Golfers can participate in hoop dreams and golf ball launcher which were added to this year's list of games. There will also be an opportunity to win cash prizes by entering a split the pot raffle. During the silent auction attendees will be able to bid on a number of high quality items and packages.

The KYC golf outing is designed for competitive golfers as well as individuals just looking to have some fun.

"Anyone who wants to have a good time and support a great cause. That is the wonderful thing about our event," said Bill Rudolph, golf outing committee chair. "It doesn't matter if you play every weekend or have never played at all. There will be something fun that challenges you."

Registration and continental breakfast begin at 6:15 a.m. with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start. In addition to a morning of golf and contests, attendees will be able to savor a hearty barbecue-style meal during the luncheon. All are encouraged to register for this event. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are still available. For information, contact Fran Geraci at or (847) 524-8800, ext. 103. You can also visit
