2017 Golf for the Kids Outing

  • 36-hole White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, IL 500 West Jefferson Street Bensenville, IL, 60106 United States (map)

We will see you soon at MEF's second largest fundraising event of the year! This year's event will take place at a NEW VENUE, 36-hole White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, IL. 

Contact Chelsea Gibson (email) at 832.216.6400 with questions.

Your support will help fund:

  • A safe summer program for more than 800 of Chicago’s low-income, academically average performing 4th-9th grade students. At Midtown & Metro, kids find caring mentors, academic enrichment, character education classes and sports & field trips that provide countless fun summer memories. Midtown & Metro offer kids an alternative to the streets that will guide them onto pathways of success.
  • Eight professional apprenticeships for High School students in Law, PR, Engineering, Business, Hospitality and Architecture! Each apprenticeship is a cohort of 15-18 students who are immersed in hands-on learning experiences in an industry. The apprenticeships are conducted with the expectations of a workplace; students receive a small stipend and produce a capstone project.
  • A parenting program for the parents of MEF kids that offers classes and seminars to help them become leaders in their home and raise happy, healthy kids.
