CASA Lake County Benefits from two Golf for A Child Invitationals 

Title Sponsors CDW and Lundbeck host two events at Kemper Lakes and Raised Nearly

$185,000 for Abused and Neglected Children

CDW and Friends Hit the Links for CASA's Children on June 17

More than 125 golfers turned out for Title Sponsor CDW's Golf for a Child Invitational at the award-winning course, Kemper Lakes on June 17. CASA Lake County Board Member Jim/Norm Lillis worked his magic in recruiting a course full of sponsors - from Platinum Sponsor HP and Silver Sponsor Cisco Systems to ServiceNet, who returned again as an All Cart Sponsor and a record number of  nine 19th Hole Sponsors. Autohaus Mercedes on the Edens delivered a C-Class to the 17th hole as our Hole in One Sponsor. CDW volunteers who monitored play on that hole felt pretty comfortable that no one would be driving that gorgeous Benz home that evening. They were right. Read more.
