August 2016 Chartwell was honored to sponsor the auction of the 56th Annual Lurie Children’s Pro Amateur Golf Championship & Dinner on the Bluff, the longest running and most successful fundraising event for the Founders’ Board of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago is the largest pediatric healthcare provider in the region, with a 130-year legacy of excellence. The Founders' Board supports the hospital's mission of providing the most advanced and compassionate healthcare for children and their families. Over 500 corporate and civic leaders attended the event, which included a dinner and auction at Shoreacres in Lake Bluff, IL overlooking Lake Michigan, and a Pro-Am golf outing at Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest, IL, where fifty golf professionals from the top golf courses around the world participated with amateurs to compete against the field on a net and gross basis. With nearly $2.0 million in proceeds raised to support Lurie Children’s patients and families, funds will support the Founders’ Board’s commitment to fund an endowed chair for the Division Head of Pediatric Surgery. Chartwell is thrilled to have been a small part of this wonderful cause.
