CHICAGO, May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Chicago nonprofit Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation will hold its sixth Annual Celebrity Golf Classic hosted by Jermaine Dye (Chicago White Sox, 2005 World Series MVP) on May 23–24, 2021, at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove.

«We are honored to have so many faithful stakeholders who are excited to partner with us for such a rewarding weekend of fun and fellowship to give children who have deformities a new lease on life.

We are truly excited to bring together some of the biggest celebrities and professional athletes to help raise awareness of the great work performed by Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation,» says Utica J. Gray, PhD, National Director of Fresh Start Caring For Kids.
«The COVID pandemic has been an undoubtedly challenging time for many of us across the country.

The goal is to raise $125,000 to ensure that patients and their families incur absolutely no cost for the surgeries and related medical care provided by Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation.
The event will begin with a Celebrity Shootout during the afternoon of Sunday, May 23, which will be followed by a Pre-Tournament Dinner and a Post-Dinner VIP Party (for special guests).

ABOUT FRESH START CARING FOR KIDS FOUNDATION
Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation is a joint venture between Fresh Start Surgical Gifts (based in San Diego, CA) and The Plastic Surgery Foundation (based in Chicago). Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation launched in Chicago with its first surgery weekend at The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital in June 2014. During the first seven years of its Chicago expansion, the organization has served 100 patients and has provided more than $3.5 million in donated medical care from volunteer medical professionals.
