The 43rd Annual
Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities
The Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities would like to extend its heartfelt
thanks to all our donors and friends for ensuring the success of the
43rd Annual All-Star Invitational Golf Outing.
Since our founding in 1970, the CBCC has raised more than $12.4 million
in support of cancer research, education and patient care programs at
Northwester Memorial Hospital, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Children's Oncology Services. These significant funds have enabled the cancer programs
at both hospitals to strengthen and expand, which benefits countless
patients and their families.
Our great strides in the fight against cancer have been made possible
because of the longstanding support and generosity of our sponsors,
patrons and celebrities. It is through their time, talent and commitment
that the CBCC is able to continue to contribute to the fight against
this devastating disease.
I would like to extend a special thanks to the committee chairman and
all the members of the CBCC for their tireless hard work and dedication
in support of our efforts to find a cure for cancer.
The assistance we have received from the development staffs of both
Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Lurie Children's should
be recognized and commended. On behalf of the Board, we are grateful
for your support.
I also would like to acknowledge the support of the Chicago White Sox,
the McGraw Foundation, Indiana Sports Charities
and BlueCross Blue Shield of Illinois to name a few, among our many
staunch supporters. The hard work and longstanding dedicaton of these
organizations, in conjunction with our Board, guarantees that we will
be able to provide the necessary funds for research in our surrounding
A testimony of our success is exhibited through the truly appreciated generosity of the All-Star Invitational patrons, sponsors and celebrities. My personal and genuine thank you for being living proof that "We're all in this together."
