2015 Annual Golf Outing

On Thursday, August 6, 2015, the Guest House will host its fifth Annual Golf Outing at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, IL. You can play 18 holes on a championship golf course and enjoy complimentary lunch, refreshments, dinner and an awards ceremony.

Test your skills in contests like longest drive, straightest drive, beat the pro, hole-in-one, longest putt, and others. Win prizes in the helicopter ball drop and raffle, or take home a great gift from our auction.

In 2014, our Golf Outing sold out faster than expected. We raised $80,000 to support the Guest House Comfort Fund, which ensures that no families are turned away. This year, we’re off to a terrific start. All Sponsorships and Player spots are SOLD OUT! We hope to raise $100,000 which will help us continue to offer the same services and financial assistance to our guests, and help us expand services to host military veterans and their families.

When Families Need to Stay Close

The IMD Guest House Foundation started in response to a critical need for affordable accommodations where family members can stay while their loved one receives medical treatment in the Illinois Medical District area.

Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Guest House serves people in need. The Guest House’s mission has expanded over time to include not only family members, but also the patients themselves, when they travel to Chicago for outpatient treatment. Each person who stays at the Guest House’s facilities is provided with comfortable, affordable accommodations for as long as they need it. The Guest House is the only such facility in Chicago that serves both children and adult patients, and families of children and adult patients, providing comfort and a safe haven at a time when energy must be directed to larger issues. Each of the hospitals in the Illinois Medical District is within walking distance of the Guest House’s accommodations.

IMD Guest House asks for a nominal nightly rate for the accommodations, but no family is ever turned away for their inability to pay.
