Calling all golf enthusiasts and philanthropist. Clever Clover Children’s Charity is thrilled to announce its upcoming Charity Golf Tournament, scheduled for June 10, at the beautiful Old Orchard Country Club in Prospect Heights.

Participants will enjoy a round of golf on a magnificent course while supporting a truly worthwhile cause.

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at noon on Monday, June 10, at Old Orchard Country Club, 700 W. Rand Road, in Prospect Heights. The format is a four-man scramble.

Clever Clover Childrens Charity (4C), understands that a child’s medical journey is primarily centered around treatment, but not simply limited to hospital stays or clinic visits, and it doesn’t simply affect the child. A serious medical condition has a deep and long lasting impact on every aspect of a family’s life. There are medical costs, travel costs, lodging costs, meals and lost income expenses. The list goes on and on. 4C guides families to the abundant resources available to help them cope with their children’s medical events that they didn’t foresee.

4C’s mission is to increase awareness and support for charitable organizations who are assisting children and their families on these medical-related journeys, which in some cases, can last into adulthood and be lifelong.

Founder, Wade Wrobel, experienced these challenges firsthand when his daughter was diagnosed as an infant with a rare condition called biliary atresia (BA). The condition occurs in about 1 in 10,000 children (about the same odds as finding a four-leaf clover, thus the name of our organization). There is no cure for BA, except an eventual liver transplant.

Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is the premier organization providing fundraising assistance to transplant families — for a lifetime. Because it is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, funds raised are not considered income for families. Since 1986, COTA has assisted children and young adults needing a lifesaving organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplant. COTA also works with individuals of any age with a single-gene disorder, such as Polycystic Kidney Disease, Cystic Fibrosis or Sickle Cell Disease.

Gifts to COTA are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Contributions to patient campaigns assist with transplant-related expenses, including lodging, transportation, household expenses, prescription medications, living donor costs and much more.
