2014 Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic

Monday, September 8, 2014

Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest

On Monday, September 8, 2014, golfers teed off for the 2014 Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic at the legendary Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest.   It was an incredible day – the weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the camaraderie was memorable.  But most impressive was the generosity of our corporate sponsors. Over 108 golfers from companies all over the Chicagoland area came out to support the mission of Bernie’s Book Bank.   They teed off to the  sounds of traditional Scottish bagpipes.  Golfers enjoyed a lunch buffet, a beautiful afternoon to golf and the chance at adding their names to the coveted Birdies & Books trophy.

We raised enough money to collect, process and distribute 210,000 quality books, which supplies 35,000 more at-risk Chicagoland children with 6 quality books.
We thank everyone who helped make this event so successful – our fabulous chairs, Barrett Davie and Jamie Wildman, the impressive staff of the Onwentsia Club, our dedicated volunteers and our generous sponsors.

Congratulations to our Championship Team:
Duncan Bourne, Tim Flannery, Elliot Farkas and Bernie Floriani, Jr.!
