Primarily a fund-raising event, each year IFI sponsors a prestigious golf outing that brings together national celebrities, local sports heroes, corporate sponsors, dedicated fathers, and eager volunteers. Held in August at one of the premier Chicagoland golf courses, the two or three day event includes community outreach, silent and live auctions, a banquet with nationally-known entertainment, and golf scores that range from impressive to humbling.
Past participants include Jim McMahon, Smokey Robinson, Mike Ditka, Johnny Bench, Mike Tomczak, Kevin Butler, Tom Dreesen, Rollie Fingers, Ed Marinaro, Richard Dent, Mike Eruzione, Steve Cochran, Michael Chang, Dan Quayle and many others. One celebrity per foursome!
It’s a great time and you can be involved by sponsoring a foursome, a hole, a table, or a special activity customized to promote your own organization. You’re invited to donate auction items, recruit golfers or volunteer. The focus is on making new friends and promoting involved and active fathering.
