"My reasoning why I sponsor the event is fairly simple. My mother had survived cancer four times before losing her fifth battle with it this past May. The American Cancer Society had always been an organization my Mother was very involved with, to the point where she organized and ran her own charity golf event in her home town of Cleveland, Tennessee for a number of years. I also enjoy the format of the event (i.e. everybody gets to play their own ball) which is usually different than other charity golf events (i.e. Scramble type events). Plus, the overall atmosphere of the event is very unique compared to other charity golf outings."

"The American Cancer Society Windy City Golf Open is a fabulous golf event to take our clients. You are able to play a top private golf course and are treated like a member for the day, all while supporting a great cause. Being able to play your own ball and having a good pace of play are both big bonuses. The American Cancer Society does a great job, and I would recommend it to our business colleagues and partners."

"A few years ago, my dear friend Kathy Mignin was honored. We have all been affected by cancer in someway, I love golf and I like to support the cause."
