Thank you to those of you who attended our first Fore the Kids fundraiser at Five Iron Golf featuring Ian Happ of the Chicago Cubs

Categories: Uncategorized

Because of your generosity and support, we raised $27,000 in net proceeds for First Tee Greater Chicago! Moreover, nearly 200 people learned more about our work and our mission.

Through your generous contributions, you have enabled us to use the game of golf as a platform to provide character-building and life skills lessons to tens of thousands of our area young people.

Golf is truly more than a game. As you learned when you heard the stories of Raquel, Ahmad and Roberto, First Tee with its platform of Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits instills values in young people such as honor, integrity, mindfulness, and respect. We are currently reaching 50,000 Chicago area youth on an annual basis through our on-course, in-school, and after-school programming.
