Norton Children’s Hospital
Foundation Golf Outing

April 2021
Lake Forest Country Club and Valhalla Golf Club

We were looking forward to having our 19th Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation Golf Classic in April. However, in keeping with the current recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have canceled the event.

In lieu of a scramble, we will be sending sponsors a certificate for a round of golf at either Lake Forest Country Club or Valhalla Golf Club based on your initial selection. We hope that you will enjoy a day on the course at a time of your choosing. Additionally, the Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation team will coordinate getting you a $250 gift certificate and gifts for each player on your team.
