This year’s event will be held on two of Cog Hill’s four courses – Course 1 and Dubsdread, which is ranked among the Top 100 courses in the country by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. All golfers will play in the afternoon, with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.
Tom Thayer, former Chicago Bears offensive lineman and play-by-play analyst for the Bears radio network, will be the celebrity guest for the outing, which raised a record $211,000 last year.

A Helicopter Ball Drop will be held at 12:30 p.m., just prior to the 1 p.m. shotgun start. Each $25 chance gives an entrant one numbered golf ball that will be dropped from a helicopter. The person with the golf ball that lands closest to or inside the cup will split half of the Ball Drop proceeds with the Edward Foundation. This event is open to the public. To purchase a chance to win, visit www.edward.org/helicopterballdrop.
