GiGi’s Playhouse 
to host golf outing

McHENRY – Plans are under way for the second annual golf outing fundraiser benefiting Gigi’s Playhouse McHenry Down Syndrome Awareness Center.

The outing Saturday at the Fox Lake Country Club, Fox Lake is an opportunity for friends, family and colleagues to spend time together, get some exercise, and support an important nonprofit agency in the community, organizers said.

This year’s event will feature an 18-hole scramble.

There will be prizes for the winning teams, as well as hole prizes, opportunities for hole-in-one prizes, a putting contest and a raffle.

The goal of the event is to raise $20,000.

A sponsorship is a good way to promote a business and its services. With sponsorship, businesses are able to invest in the community, entertain clients or thank valued employees.

This event proves that caring individuals and companies can join together to make a significant impact in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome.

For information or to participate, contact Jean Boyle at 815-385-7529 or email mchenry@gigisplayhouse.org.
