CHICAGO, August 14, 2018— Abbott and Chicago Youth Centers (CYC) proudly invite you to join the highly anticipated Chipping in for Chicago Youth Golf Outing on Monday, Aug. 20, 2017, at the exclusive Skokie Country Club.

The annual event raises critical funds to equalize access to high quality youth development programs for children living in Chicago’s underserved communities. The Chipping in for Chicago Youth Golf Outing is one of only two charitable events hosted at the Skokie Country Club each year.
