The 27th annual Edward Foundation Charity Golf Tournament will take place Aug. 31 at Cog Hill Golf Club in Lemont.
The foundation is the charitable fundraising organization of Edward Hospital.
Dionne Miller, ABC7 weekend sports anchor, will be the celebrity guest for the outing, which raised $447,000 last year.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes have been made to the event to ensure participant safety:
Masks and hand sanitizer will be distributed to each golfer upon arrival. Instead of a shotgun start, tee times will be scheduled throughout the day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The format remains a scramble. Golfers will be served food and drinks on the course. There will be no formal lunch or dinner.
Electronic scoring will be available for golfers to keep track of their strokes on their phone.
A “Buy Now, Play Later” feature is available, which participants can use to support the Edward Foundation but play at Cog Hill at any time during August.
A 50/50 cash raffle will be held instead of a Helicopter Ball Drop. Anyone can participate. Those who enter do not need to be present to win.
The event will feature a Million Dollar Shootout, in which golfers enter for a chance to be selected as one of three golfers to have a shot at $1 million with a hole-in-one on a par-3 hole.
