Title Sponsor, Elite Ambulance, represented by Mark Vandenberg, Mark Nicks, John Figliuolo and Dan Kidd, with golf pro Mike Woods.

Northwest Community Hospital Foundation’s annual Golf Classic at Medinah Country Club on July 18 raised $874,000, far surpassing previous fundraising records. Elite Ambulance was the Title Sponsor for the 25th Anniversary of the event that also included an online silent auction and raffle that was supported by attendees as well as members of the community.

Proceeds will support an ambitious plan to transform cancer care for the region with the centerpiece being a new state-of-the-art, standalone cancer center on the former Motorola campus in Schaumburg.

“Our 25th anniversary golf outing was a record breaking success as our partners and friends enthusiastically showed their support for a world-class cancer center that is becoming a reality,” shared Henry Dominicis, M.D., co-chair of the event and physician director of Ambulatory Services at NCH.

Fellow co-chair Giancarlo Pacini, who is Senior Vice President of Healthcare and Senior Living with Leopardo Construction, remarked, “I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate this amazing event’s 25th Anniversary than with another record! We are so grateful for our sponsors and the Golf Classic committee for making this possible.”

“Having built a solid foundation of providing outstanding care, we have a vision to make the best care even better, right here near family and friends.” says NCH Foundation Executive Director David Ungurean. “The community is key to making this vision a reality through their input and philanthropic support. Our Golf Classic supporters have played an integral role in helping our vision become a reality through their partnership.”

NCH looks forward to hosting the 26th Golf Classic in the summer of 2023 at Medinah Country Club. If you would like more information about the event or would like to join the NCH Foundation mailing list, please call 847-618-4260 or email
