Midwest Furniture Club Sponsors 8th Annual Bill Krause Charity Event

Furniture World News on

The Midwest Furniture Club announced that it is proud to sponsor the 8th Annual Bill Krause Charity Golf Outing on Wednesday, June 29th, 2010 at the Villa Olivia Country Club in Bartlett IL. The annual event benefits the Alexander Graham Bell Montessori School & Alternatives for the Hearing Impaired, a cause near and dear to the Krause family’s hearts. Bill Krause was a long-time member and past President of the Midwest Furniture Club, and a representative for Century Furniture.

This year the golf event takes on added meaning for the upper Midwest furniture community. The Midwest Furniture Club has named the trophies to honor Brenda Guiney who has been a long-time supporter of the golf event and a great competitor on the course. Brenda is unable to attend this year’s event due to illness. Brenda and her husband, Pat, operate Guiney Delivery Service, serving furniture customers in the upper Midwest.

"Brenda has been the woman’s long drive champion at the golf outing many times. She would love to be here with us this year, but since she can’t, we’ll celebrate her caring and support for this event in this way," say Mike Zierk, coordinator for the annual event.

The event kicks off at 11:30 with a grill lunch before golf at 12:30 pm. Happy hour, dinner and raffle begin at 5:30. Non-golfers are encouraged to attend the evening portion of the event for the dinner and the raffle. Items to be raffled off this year include sporting events packages, plasma TVs and many other exciting prizes, including the grand prize a weekend get-away for two at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva WI.

Hole sponsorships, raffle prizes and other ways to support this terrific charity are still available. Please contact Mike Zierk at 708-997-2554, michaelzierk@comcast.net to attend, donate goods or ask questions.
