Evergreen Park Mayor Jim Sexton will chair the 11th annual William E. Joyce Golf Invitational to benefit Catholic Charities’ Loving Outreach to Survivors of Suicide program.
The event will begin with a shotgun start at noon Monday at Crystal Tree Golf and Country Club, 10700 W. 153rd St., Orland Park.
Singles are $375 per person, and foursomes are $1,500 per person. Sponsorship opportunities also are available. Non-golfers are invited to attend through the Cocktails and Dinner Package for $75 per person.
The day will feature closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests for men and women. Prizes will include gift certificates to area restaurants, including Cavatappi and Chi Tung in Evergreen Park and Palermo’s 95th in Oak Lawn. There also will be a hole-in-one contest, a silent auction and more.
Reservations are required.
The Loving Outreach to Survivors of Suicide Program was founded in 1978 when three families each lost a teenaged child to suicide. They approached the Rev. Charles Rubey and Catholic Charities with a request to create a community where the pain of suicide loss could be fully heard.
From that first support group, the LOSS Program has expanded to serve the needs of suicide-bereaved individuals across Cook, Lake, Will and DuPage counties.
