Midwest Furniture Club charity golf outing set for July 17

CHICAGO — The Midwest Furniture Club will host the 11th annual Bill Krause Charity Golf Outing on July 17, with the event once again benefiting the Alexander Graham Bell Montessori School & Alternatives for the Hearing Impaired.

Bill Krause was a longtime member and past president of the Midwest Furniture Club, and a representative for Century Furniture, as well as an early supporter of the Bell School. Last year, the club raised more than $6,800 on behalf of the school.

"We are proud to have played a small role in the growth of this great school," said Mark Dilling, the coordinator for the golf event. "We have a great time at the golf outing, bringing together retailers, manufacturer's reps and industry folks for fun on the course. At the dinner and charity raffle after golf, we welcome more of our industry counterparts. We think this year will be our best golf and dinner event yet."

The outing, which is returning to Whisper Creek Country Club in Huntley Ill., will kick off at noon with a grill lunch and putting contest before golf at 1:30 p.m. Happy hour, dinner and a raffle follow the golf at 6 p.m.

Non-golfers can attend the dinner and the raffle. Items to be raffled off include sporting events packages, wine baskets and a weekend getaway for two at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Hole sponsorships, raffle prize donations and other ways to support the charity are still available.

Contact Dilling at (708) 267-7105, markdilling@hotmail.com to sign up to attend, donate goods, sponsor a hole or ask questions. Information on the event also is available online at midwestfurnitureclub.com.
