2015 Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic

Monday, August 31, 2015

Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest

On Monday, August 31, 2015, golfers teed off for the 2015 Birdies & Books Charity Golf Classic at the legendary Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest.   It was an outstanding 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. More than 104 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 collect, 170,000 quality books, which supplies 28,300 more at-risk Chicagoland children with 6 quality books each in the coming year. We thank every one who helped make this event so successful – our fabulous chairs, Barrett Davie and Jamie Wildman, the Birdies & Books Committee, the impressive staff of the Onwentsia Club, our dedicated volunteers and our generous sponsors.
