Fresh Start Caring For Kids Presents the 2nd Annual Celebrity Golf Classic and Party

Proceeds benefit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation, which provides no-cost medical services to children in need of reconstructive surgery.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children with no-cost reconstructive surgery and follow-up medical care, is hosting the 2nd annual Celebrity Golf Classic June 19 and 20.
Former Chicago White Sox and 2005 World Series MVP Jermaine Dye, along with Honorary Chairpersons Dr. David H. Song, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and his wife, Mrs. Janie Song, will host the Pre-Celebrity Golf Classic Party on Sunday, June 19 and the golf outing on Monday, June 20, both at The Hilton Chicago – Indian Lakes Resort (250 W. Schick Road, Bloomingdale, IL 60108).
The party, hosted from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., includes live music and an opportunity to mingle with celebrity guests Jermaine Dye, Marcus Allen, Andre Reed, Frank Thomas, Jerry Azumah, Robbie Gould, Brian Andersen, Dan Pasqua, Carlos May, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Chuck Garfien during a buffet dinner with an open bar. The evening also features live and silent auctions with prizes, including an Apple Vacations and Riu Caribe three-night vacation to Cancun, Mexico; a Sonoma Valley winemaking experience; an ultimate experience package for the Broadway hit Hamilton; and various experience packages and sports memorabilia.
The parents of Jasper Damiano, a Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation patient, will speak about his experience with the non-profit, including how the organization helped make his surgery possible and how his quality of life has improved since his reconstructive procedure.
The next day, June 20, begins with registration and breakfast at 8 a.m. and golfing at 9 a.m. Participants have the opportunity to golf with a celebrity and win prizes. At the end of the round, participants will enjoy a cocktail reception and raffle drawing.

“I’m honored to partner with Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation,” said host Jermaine Dye. “No child should have to endure a physical deformity because of lack of insurance or lack of financial resources. The Foundation gives children a new lease on life. I’m excited to bring some of the biggest names in professional sports to help raise awareness of the great work performed by the Foundation.”

All proceeds from the 2nd annual Celebrity Golf Classic will benefit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation, which provides no-cost medical services to patients through “Surgery Weekends” and clinics held at the University of Chicago Medicine’s Comer Children’s Hospital. Medical services are donated by doctors, clinicians and other medical professionals.
Last year the Celebrity Golf Classic raised $20,000 for the Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation. Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation’s vision is to build a community of local health care organizations and surgical volunteers committed to ensuring that—through short- and long-term medical intervention—every child with a physical deformity receives the medical care they need. Through the treatment they receive, each child has a new opportunity to develop a positive self-image, renewed self-esteem, confidence and a fresh start in life.
Every day many children courageously face the world with physical imperfections and deformities. Some are born with birth defects, while others have suffered from disease and injury.
Each child deserves the best medical care possible. Surgeons affiliated with Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation are highly-trained specialists who are board certified in plastic surgery and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Reconstructive surgery can help correct many of these issues, such as cleft lip and cleft palate, Treacher Collins syndrome, port-wine stain and microtia, but many children do not have access to the surgery and care they need.
Tickets for the party are $52.24. Celebrity golf outing tickets are $1,009.95 for an individual golfer and $5,009.95 for a foursome with a celebrity. All ticket and sponsorship opportunities are available at
