Tee Times are now available for the 2013 Pro Amateur Golf Championship.

Please Join us for the 53rd Annual Pro Amateur Golf Championship and Dinner on the Bluff

The Founders’ Board of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Men’s Golf Committee are proud to host the 53rd Annual Pro Amateur Golf Championship presented by United Airlines. The Pro Am, the board’s longest running and most successful fundraising event, has raised more than $16 million to support the hospital since its inception in 1961.

The Pro Am festivities tee off with the Dinner on the Bluff on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at Shoreacres in Lake Bluff, Illinois. Event sponsors, friends and donors, Founders’ Board members and hospital leadership will celebrate the event’s tradition of giving and impact on Lurie Children’s at this special celebration. The evening will include a cocktail reception on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, dinner, a brief live auction that will include exclusive, one-of-a-kind items, remarks by a family treated at Lurie Children’s and an exciting and spirited Paddle Raise.

Amateur and professional golfers will gather at Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest, Illinois, for the 53rd Golf Championship. Groups of four amateurs and one professional will tee off in either the morning or afternoon flight and can choose to participate in either the traditional Best Ball format or the newly-added Scramble format. Following the Pro Am, golfers and their guests are invited to the 19th Hole Awards Party. This casual, post-event celebration will recognize the top finishing groups in the Pro Am and include the presentation of the June Seaman Trophy.

Proceeds from the 53rd Annual Pro Amateur Golf Championship will support the mission of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
