President's Message

It is with great pride and appreciation that I am able to report the Chicago Society golf outing went off without a hitch on July 9th, at Gleneagles Country Club in Lemont.  The event was made special by the 100 attendees, 84 golfers, willing volunteers and generous sponsors.  I encourage our entire membership to thank and support the below listed individuals, as they made all of this possible and allow us to continue to fulfill our organization’s mission as we support Polonia and each other.

 

Special thanks to Polvision who was there and did a segment which is available at the following link if you could not make it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vue-oAtZEIs).

 

My sincere thanks to the following for their help leading up to and executing the event: Rich Ciesla, Rick Wiermanski, Zenon Kurdziel, Peter Dykas, Ted Makarewicz, Andy Haszlakiewicz, Jan Plachta, Stan Nowak, Ken Stellon, Artur Jaworski and Chris Grzadziel. 

 

Donations help keep the costs of the event down and thank you to those that donated items including: Walgreens (gift bags/water/beer provided by Artur Jaworski – Bensenville Store Manager), TK’s Live Edge (Ted Kozelka donated live edge cherry wood bench), Andy Haszlakiewicz (grill set), Rich Ciesla (vodka and wine), Adam Konopka (Kindle Fire and Belvedere Vodka), Jan Plachta (Polish Eagle gobelin and books), TEAM Concept Printing (Tony Rouse who donated a $100 visa gift card and signage for the event), Dowd & Dowd, Ltd. (Adam Konopka who donated golf balls for winners), Matt Thomas (donated $100) and Representative Brad Stephens (donated $100).

 

One of the highlights of the night was when attendee Sam Lapinski won the 50/50 raffle, worth $1,000, and on the spot decided to donate all of it to our youth fund!!!  Thank you Sam for your incredible generosity!!!

 

Our VIP hosts allow all of us to have a truly fun experience with beverages and entertainment (thanks to our accordion player Dennis Motyka!), while keeping attendance costs reasonable.  Special thanks to all of them, including our Host Sponsor Dynamic Safety, Event Sponsors B & M Auto Collision (Bogdan Trytko) and Dowd & Dowd, Ltd. and Beverage Cart Sponsors Frontline Performance Group and Hart Dental!!!
