2018 Annual Golf Outing

On October 1, 2018 Friends of Marlene hosted its 3nd Golf Outing and netted $80,000 to support our mission of providing patient support services at Gilda's Club Chicago.  This was only possible due to the generous support of our many sponsors. A sincere thank you to all who made this donation possible by supporting this event.
