Over the past 35 years, the Carol Cohn and Margie Weil Memorial MS Outing has raised more than $11 million for MS research and programs. Thanks to this year’s event, held at the Northmoor Country Club (820 Edgewood, Highland Park) July 8, the organization can add another $1 million to its tally. More than 500 guests turned up to watch an 18-hole tournament sponsored by BMO Harris Bank, participate in live and silent auctions and enjoy cocktails donated by Wirtz Beverage. Philanthropic heavyweights Renée and Lester Crown were honored during the dinner program for their long-standing commitment to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
