Summary: Golfers participated in inaugural golf event to benefit the Breast Cancer Center at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. 

 

Bolingbrook – More than 120 golfers and 50 dinner guests helped raise more than $40,000 toward the Breast Cancer Center at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. The Sept. 22 event took place at the Bolingbrook Golf Club and the golfers started the best ball formatted event with a shotgun start.  Dinner and awards followed the golfing.

 

“Our breast center offers the latest in breast cancer-detecting technology, surgery, physical therapy,” said Rick Mace, the chief executive officer of Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. “Thanks to events like this golf outing, we are able to offer the community a multidisciplinary team of professionals who are dedicated to breast health and care.”

The Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation raises funds to advance Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital’s mission of extending the healing ministry of Christ. Proceeds from the outing went to benefit the hospital’s Breast Center, which provides a full array of services for women using an integrated approach to the evaluation and treatment of breast abnormalities. Services include digital mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI, breast biopsies, reconstructive surgery and radiation oncology referral.

 

The foundation would like to thank the dedicated event chair, Ron Hawkins, and the rest of the golf committee: Eric Aldrich, Tom Castagnoli, Michael Evans, Jim Galbraith, Robert Jaskiewicz, Linnea Jaskiewicz, Kris Kuchler, Herman McKenzie and Craig Parker. 

 

The event was such a success that they plan to hold it again next year, according to Derek Cazeau, executive director of the foundation.
