La Rabida Children’s Hospital, 6501 S. Promontory Dr., will, for the 29th year in a row, host its annual Golf Classic fundraiser on Monday, Aug. 6, at the Harborside International Golf Center, 11001 S. Doty Ave.

Golf enthusiasts and those in the Chicagoland business community who are interested in supporting La Rabida’s programming are invited to play 18 holes of golf on the championship-style course.

Participants can also take part in auctions and contests, and raffles and golf prizes will be awarded throughout the day. Food, cocktails, lunch and dinner will be provided alongside an expressionist painting performance by artist David Grom.

Guests will also be able to buy golf balls that will be dropped out of a helicopter that evening; the one that lands closest to a target will win a $500 prize.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will provide patients with quality specialized treatments and services, regardless of whether or not they are able to pay.
