Come out and enjoy the 18th Annual Charities Golf Classic on Monday, July 23 at the Knollwood Club in Lake Forest and Shoreacres Club in Lake Bluff; two of North Shore’s most popular golf courses. Long-time Lake Forest residents Charley and Ellie Clarke will be this year’s honorary chairs.
After golf, guests (nongolfers are welcome to the evening activities) will enjoy a live and silent auction featuring outstanding items such as:
- a seven day stay in a scenic mountain retreat in Telluride
- Skybox tickets for the Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds game
- and a photo shoot for six at John Reilly Photography in Chicago, including a limo and dinner at the famed RPM Italian Restaurant
