The Ringer (Chicagoland, Cleveland)
The Ringer is an annual event symbolic of the special moment a child “rings the bell” signifying the end of their cancer treatment. Participants play 100 holes of golf in a marathon style event while fundraising for childhood cancer and related blood disorders research. The event has now grown to include three different locations including the original Ringer at the Bog Golf Course (April 28th), the Chicagoland Ringer at Bull Valley Golf Club (April 25th), and our newest event, the Cleveland Ringer at Westwood Country Club hosted in conjunction with Prayers for Maria, a Children’s Cancer Foundation (May 2nd). While the Ringers are invite-only events, there is always the opportunity for new golfers to join so contact us about getting on the waiting list!
There is also an opportunity for sponsors for all the events, which you can learn more about at www.maccfund.org/events. Simply select the Ringer location you’re interested in learning about! Individuals can also get involved by donating to the various participants and helping us reach our goal! Donate to a participant’s fundraiser at:
MACC Fund Invitational
This is the 16th year of this wonderful event where young golfers from across the state come together to fundraise for one cause: childhood cancer and related blood disorders research. This year the event has expanded, now including two locations at Erin Hills Golf Course and The Club at Lac La Belle. The event is free to spectators, but there’s also an opportunity to support these amazing young golfers by donating to their fundraisers at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/MFI22. If you’d prefer to support the entire event rather than a single individual, there’s also a variety of sponsor levels to choose from! Learn more about sponsorship: https://maccfund.org/macc-fund-invitational/
The MACC Fund Invitational also needs a lot of volunteer support at both locations. Volunteers will be acting as marshals for the event, typically at the tee giving directions or in the fairway/green helping to spot players’ shots. Each volunteer is asked to make a 3-to-4-hour commitment, but if you want to stay longer, we’re happy to have you! If interested, please email the volunteer coordinator for this event Ed Swab at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you found the event that fits you best, but if not stay tuned for “A Guide to MACC Fund Events: Summer Edition” to learn more about other upcoming events!
