Philanthropy fights prostate cancer
Chicago Prostate Cancer Center works hand-in-hand with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago (PCFC) to provide education and support for men facing prostate cancer and to conduct research to conquer the disease that affects one in seven men. PCFC counts on the generosity of patients and their families, and grants from foundations, corporations and the greater community to help provide prostate cancer screening, education and support groups.
Golf with a purpose
One of PCFC’s dedicated supporters is the remarkable family of Hank J. Bauer. Blake and Ashly Bauer and their friends and family have worked tirelessly each of the last four years to keep the spirit of Blake’s father alive. Hosting the Hank Bauer Memorial Golf Outing — complete with fun golf-hole prizes, raffle items sponsored by generous community businesses, and participation by over a hundred golfers — is their way to bring family and friends together to remember Hank and raise awareness and support for prostate cancer screening and educational outreach.
This year’s event at the Cary Country Club will happen August 6, 2016, just 4 days before commemorating the 4th anniversary of Hank’s passing. However, the family draws strength and encouragement for the future in their celebration of life that goes a long way to help other men like Blake’s dad fight prostate cancer.
Register now to golf the 9-hole scramble, or to join in the after-golf dinner event with live performance by “Ivy Ford.” PCFC is most grateful to the Bauers and encourages everyone to join in the fun!
