2018 Ripken Windy City Golf Classic

Guests enjoy lunch followed by a day of golf, a cocktail reception, and an awards ceremony. This tournament  is held in Sugar Grove, IL at Rich Harvest Farms, one of the nation’s top golf courses. Tournament proceeds will benefit the construction of a Ripken Youth Development Park to open in 2018 in Read-Dunning Park.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, working throughout the country with community-based youth organizations to serve at-risk young people and build Youth Development Parks in America’s most distressed communities. Founded in 2001, the Foundation is led by former Major League Baseball players, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Bill Ripken, and was named in memory of their father, Cal, Sr. The life lessons of leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic are keys to success for all young people, especially those living in disadvantaged circumstances.
