Chicagoland’s 1st annual Narcolepsy golf outing, Extinguish Narcolepsy occured on May 10, 2014 at Whisper Creek GC in Huntley, IL. We raised almost $50,000 and everyone had a terrific time. This money was donated to Wake UP Narcolepsy (WUN), which oragnized the outing. WUN is a nonprofit Ive been working with for several years. They are dedicated to speeding narcolepsy diagnosis through greater awareness, and funding medical research to find a cure.
KIA, Jazz pharmaceuticals, Teva were the major sponsors. KIA even had a hole in one car. One golfer hit his shot only a few inches from the hole to just miss out on winning a brand new KIA Cadenza. A few lucky people beat me on my Beat the Pro hole to win Kentwool socks and Golf Dotz, two of my favorite golf products. The silent auction had some nice prizes. Items like golf clubs, Chicago Cubs tailgate bean bag game, tickets to Great America. It was a successful, fun day. We raised awareness and money for Narcolepsy. My Mom’s last minute idea, Mulligans, raised $800. Thanks for the bright idea Mom.
