This year’s festivities for the 60th annual celebration will begin with the Dinner on the Bluff on Saturday evening, June 27, 2020 at Shoreacres Golf Club in Lake Bluff. This year’s 60th anniversary event will host 500 guests for a celebratory summer dinner party that recognizes the event’s generous sponsors, individual golfers and donors for their support of Lurie Children’s through the Pro Am.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, a seated dinner with an inspiring program and a chic after-dinner lounge.
On Monday, two hundred amateur golfers will tee off in the Pro Am at the Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest. Amateur foursomes will be paired with professionals from top-rated golf clubs across the country.
Top finishers in the tournament will be recognized at the post-golf 19th Hole Awards Party, a casual gathering on the lawn at Onwentsia with 200 attendees – the perfect setting to celebrate the impact and success of the Pro Am.
The Pro Am is the most successful annual fundraising event in the Hospital’s history, with cumulative proceeds totaling more than $20 million. This has enabled Lurie Children’s to enhance patient care and to recruit renowned leaders in pediatric medicine and science.
