23rd Annual Golf Outing Recap

Golf outing- Thank you (1) On Monday, August 31, we hosted our 23rd annual Chipping in for Chicago Youth Golf Outing at the Glen View Club in Golf, Illinois. Thanks to your support, this was the most successful Golf Outing in CYC’s history! We netted $109,000 to directly support CYC's children and families.

We especially want to thank our Committee co-chairs, Al Reid and Pat Hardiman, all our wonderful sponsors, and Wintrust Commercial Banking, for joining us as the Title Sponsor for the third year in a row. And of course, a big thank you to all our golfers! We can't thank you enough for your time, support, and commitment to Chicago's kids.

The Bronze Ball Recap

On June 26th, CYC's Bronze Ball celebrated the 90-year legacy of the Elliott Donnelley Youth Center (EDYC) and history of our Bronzeville Community with live music, art, and food and drinks from local restaurants--not to mention an epic dance performance by our EDYC teens.

We want to give a big thank you to everyone who supported this significant occasion. With your help, generosity and commitment, we raised more than $53,000 net to support the work of EDYC and CYC's Summer Enrichment Program.

We'd especially like to thank our Honorary Chairs, the Donnelley Family, the Jesse Owens Family, and Alderman Pat Dowell; our generous sponsors; and the chair of the Bronze Ball, Amy Weiss Narea. We're also incredibly grateful to the foundations that have supported EDYC: The Alvin H. Baum Family Fund, The Kemper Educational and Charitable Fund, and National Recreation Foundation, among others. Thank you!
