Athletes For Care has announced their inaugural charity golf tournament in support of Lost Boyz, Inc., a Chicago-based community youth sports organization.
A charity event has been organized that provides immediate support to the Lost Boyz winter sports program. A4C’s first-ever Golf Tournament will be held on September 22nd at the Bolingbrook Golf Club in Bolingbrook.
The event will bring together former NFL players, former Notre Dame Football players, participants and sponsors for a fun, safe, meaningful charity experience.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected youth, their families, and their communities and dramatically impacted youth sports programs.
Lost Boyz, Inc. is a sports-based youth organization in Chicago’s South Shore community that offers children ages 4-17 the opportunity to learn skills, physical conditioning and the history of sport in an empowering environment. Organized sports is the foundation for supporting youth, but Lost Boyz goes beyond recreation to cultivate resilience and trauma healing for youth and their families. The focus is on cultural enrichment, mentorship, and education.

We are proud to dedicate the first event in our new A4C Tour to Lost Boyz Inc., who work so hard to engage and empower the kids they reach through their organization.”
