FRIDAY, August 4, 2017 is Northern Illinois Hospice Foundation’s 30th Annual Charity Golf Event and 2nd Annual Rockvinia Concert at Rockford Country Club!
The Charity Golf Event begins at noon with a shotgun start. Golfers enjoy eighteen holes with prizes, contests and give-a-ways throughout the course. Following play, golfers will relax on the patio enjoying food, cocktails and live music by Kelly Steward.
At 5 pm, Rockvinia festivities begin with Rockvinia sponsors and guests arriving and joining golfers for dinner and cocktails on the patio and lawn area. Kelly Steward will be entertaining and Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts will take the stage at approximately 6:30 pm. Rockvinia will wrap up around 8 p.m. with, hopefully, a sunset as beautiful as last year’s!
“Last year, our Golf event and Rockvinia concert raised nearly $50,000 for Northern Illinois Hospice Foundation,” says Scott Olson, Golf Committee Chair. “In 2017, we plan to swing past this milestone number with generous sponsors, golfers, concert goers, and community friends!
Golf and Rockvinia Sponsorships are now available. (Please check back in late May/early June to purchase Rockvinia Tickets and golf foursomes.
