Save The Date: May 17-18 2020

Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation and Jermaine Dye is proud to name Rich Harvest Farms as the new home for the 6th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic to benefit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation.

Jermaine Dye (Chicago White Sox, 2005 World Series MVP) will host the 6th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic May 17-18, 2020 to benefit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation at Rich Harvest Farms located in Sugar Grove, Illinois which consistently ranks on Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses”.

“I’m very excited to call Rich Harvest Farms our new home for our annual celebrity golf tournament. It was very easy to partner with the Rich Family and host our event at their beautiful property. Their family values of giving back to children who are less fortunate are guiding principles of Fresh Start Caring For Kids and, through this new friendship, we look forward to working together and providing kids a fresh start in life through the gift of reconstructive surgery. ” – Jermaine Dye

Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children with no-cost reconstructive surgery and follow-up medical care. The organization has provided no-cost surgeries and medical care to over 85 patients and more than $3.5 million in donated medical care since its June 2014 inception in Chicago.

Jermaine Dye, along with Honorary Chairperson, Kevin Miller, will host the pre-tournament dinner on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at Rich Harvest Farms in their world-renowned car museum as the evening’s backdrop. The dinner will feature live and silent auctions with prizes, various experience packages, and sports memorabilia along with an opportunity to mingle with Jermaine Dye and other celebrity guests.    

Brand new this year to further elevate the experience at Rich Harvest Farms, there will be a special VIP Celebrity Shootout held Sunday afternoon for top sponsors before the dinner. VIP sponsors will be paired in a pro-am format with a celebrity and will compete as a team against other celebrities and participants for big prizes. At the end of the tournament there will be a lunch with prizes awarded to 1st – 3rd place winners.

“Sitting down with Jermaine and Rich Harvest Farms, we collaborated on how we could create something truly special for our corporate sponsors and celebrities who have impacted the lives of these children in such a positive manner. The celebrity shootout will bring a little fun, competitive spirit to the event while giving everyone a chance to play their own ball before the actual tournament.” – Kevin Miller, Honorary Chairperson    

The golf outing will take place on Monday, May 18, 2020 with a 9 am shotgun start. The foursomes will be paired with a celebrity, compete for prizes, and an awards lunch will follow the golf tournament.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the 6th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic will directly benefit the medical needs of children served by Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation. The organization provides no-cost medical services to patients through Surgery Weekends and clinics held at The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital three times per year. Medical services are donated by doctors, clinicians and other medical professionals. The Jermaine Dye Celebrity Golf Classics have raised more than $225,000 to-date to benefit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation in Chicago.
