Information provided by LARC

LANSING, Ill. (June 22, 2023) — LARC, a not-for-profit organization providing supports and services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will host its Annual Golf Outing on Friday, August 4, at Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start is at 12:30 p.m.

“LARC on the Links” features 18 holes of golf, lunch, games, contests, and complimentary select refreshments on the course. A recognition dinner following the scramble is also included. This year’s event will feature over $30,000 in hole-in-one prizes. Golf-dinner packages are $200 per person. Dinner-only guests are $70 per person.

LARC is seeking golfers, sponsorships, as well as in-kind donations for their raffle. Sponsorship opportunities range in price from $200 to $3,500. Smaller sponsorships include hole signage, and larger corporate packages include complimentary foursomes. In-kind donations, such as gift cards and gift certificates from area restaurants and businesses, will help to provide additional raffle revenue at the event.

“Lincolnshire is a beautiful course, and we are very excited to return,” said Executive Director Ernie Gonzalez. “Proceeds from this year’s golf outing will be used to purchase equipment for a new sensory stimulation program here at LARC. By creating a multi-sensory space for our clients, they will be able to explore all their senses and participate in activities that offer a safe place to reset themselves from the stresses they may experience.”

Sponsorships, golf, and dinner reservations should be received by Friday, July 21. For more information, to register, or to become a sponsor, contact Jeff Gajewski at (708) 474-1540 or visit LARC’s website.
