2017 Carle Golf Open

September 10 was a beautiful day for golf, and it was a spectacular day for two programs that make healthcare in our community extraordinary.

Thanks again for playing in the 2017 Carle Golf Open. As promised, your foursome photo from the event is attached. Please share it with your teammates.

Thanks to your generosity, the 2017 Carle Golf Open raised more than $250,000.

Benefitting from your gift will be a brand-new service devoted to improving the future for young mothers, children and families in need, and a program designed to help kids with hearing loss.

From the golf open proceeds, we will use more than $175,000 to help build a new mobile clinic designed to deliver Carle’s world-class healthcare where it’s needed most.

The remaining $75,000 will help offset operational costs at Carle Auditory Oral School.

Here, children overcome delays in spoken language, social interactions and academic readiness caused by hearing loss so they can successfully transition into schools in their own communities.

Be sure to mark your calendar now for the 2018 Carle Golf Open on Sunday, September 9, at Urbana Country Club.
