The Des Plaines Friends of the Parks is hosting our 4th annual "Golf in the Dark at Lake Park" on Saturday, September 29, 2018. To date, this exciting glow-in-the-dark golf tournament, dinner and silent auction has helped provide over $45,000 in scholarships so children in Des Plaines, Illinois can participate in Des Plaines Park District’s programs, classes and summer camps. Did you know that 53 percent of the students in elementary school District 62 qualify for free and reduced meals? Our community’s children depend on our scholarships to support their recreational needs.

Golfers enjoy this unique tournament once the sun sets. Glow golf balls and LED lighted markers illuminate the fairway. Participants enjoy great food, adult beverages, music, raffles and a silent auction.

Volunteers are needed in the month leading up to the event, as well as throughout the event for a variety of jobs. Set-up, golf course monitoring, tear-down, plus more. Sign up for a shift or stay for the entire event! Volunteers will be given dinner. If you cannot help on September 29th, we need help distributing registration forms, hanging posters in local businesses, and securing raffle and silent auction items. We would appreciate any sponsorships or donations, so please pass along our event's info!
