7-Eleven Franchise Owners of Chicagoland invites its team and the public to help out in its annual charity golf outing to support two local nonprofits.
7-Eleven Franchise Owners of Chicagoland (FOAC) wants to fundraise for two local nonprofits by hosting a charity golf outing on Aug 22 at the Gleneagles Country Club in Lemont, Ill.
Both the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Gift of Hope: Organ & Tissue Donor Network will benefit from the event. Chicago Bears Super Bowl XX Champ Dennis McKinnon, often referred to as “Silky D,” plans to co-host the golf outing.
FOAC hosts the golf outing annually for nonprofit organizations, and for the first time ever for this event, the public is invited to join in the fun. In past years, the outing was exclusively for franchisees, their managers and staff members, vendor suppliers and those from 7-Eleven corporate offices.
“We’re thrilled that our customers want to golf with us and are interested in supporting our charity event,” said Gary Loughridge, FOAC board member and chairman of this year’s charity golf outing. “We’re anticipating a very large turnout and are grateful that Dennis McKinnon will, once again, be part of the day-long festivities.”
The past few years alone, the charity has raised more than $125,000 for Children’s Memorial Hospital, which was renamed the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Chldren’s Hospital of Chicago. The golf outing also raised more than $15,000 for Gift of Hope.
Tickets for the FOAC Charity Golf Outing cost $125 per person, giving participants access to 18 holes of golf, as well as breakfast, lunch and a cocktail reception. Other prizes will be distributed throughout the day. All golfers receive a $70 voucher to be used in the Pro Shop for Callaway merchandise.
