6th Annual Carolyn Czerkies Memorial Golf Outing

Saturday, June 8, 2013
Joliet Country Club, Joliet, IL
Shotgun Start - 1:00pm
Limited to 144 Golfers

For more information or to register as a golfer, volunteer, or sponsor please contact Craig Czerkies at czak16@aol.com or 630-721-0557.

In 2000, our mother, Carolyn Czerkies, passed away from complications brought on by multiple myeloma. In 2008, my brothers, David and Scott, and I decided to organize our first IMF fundraiser as a tribute to our mom to benefit the efforts of the International Myeloma Foundation.

Over the past five years, with the generous donations from all the participants, sponsors, and volunteers, our event has raised over $120,000. In fact, last year's event (138 golfers), was one of the nation's largest charity golf outings to benefit the IMF.

Our event has been featured in the "Making Miracles" newsletter and the IMF's 2008 and 2009 Annual Reports. We are also proud to have been able to fund two Junior Research Grants in our mom's name to Dr. Naoya Mimura of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (2011) and Ulf Krause of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine (2012).

Please join us for this year's 6th Annual Carolyn Czerkies Memorial Golf Outing on Saturday, June 8th at Joliet Country Club and help support the IMF's effort to find a cure for this life-threatening disease.

Please contact Craig Czerkies at czak16@aol.com or 630-721-0557 for golf and sponsorship opportunities.
