Inaugural Greater Chicagoland Buddy Check 22: Veteran Suicide Awareness Golf Scramble

This is our 1st year at bringing our event to the Chicagoland Area. We will be golfing at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge, May 18th @ 1:00 pm. Our driving goal is to bring awareness to the Veteran suicide rate of 22 deaths per day. 100% of all net proceeds from the outing will go to Vet “Help” programs that deal primarily with Vets who suffer from PTSD and / or homelessness, as well as supporting our own 2 initiatives; Well In Mind and the Vet Honor Walk. Our initiatives are in conjunction with Riverside Medical Center, Kankakee. Well In Mind provides no-charge counseling sessions to the Vet and their support group. For the Veteran Honor Walk (Veteran Death Rites), we have provided gov. spec. casket flags with triangular presentation boxes to the hospital. When a Vet is admitted to the hospital, the flag is placed outside the Vet’s room. Should the Vet pass, the flag is placed over their gurney and stays with them until burial, when it is presented to the family. Our goal is to spread these initiatives to a hospital within the Chicagoland area.
