ELK GROVE, IL – July 18th, 2019 was recorded as one of the hottest days of the summer reaching a heat index of 107 degrees. Employees of Icon enjoyed a day at the Fox Run Golf Links to celebrate themselves and donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Despite the heatwave, 80 employees and guests participated in Icon’s 15th annual golf outing and the theme was #golfingforacure. With the option to donate as the event went on and t-shirt sales, Icon employees collectively raised over $1,900 for LLS.
Throughout the day there were games, food and laughs as employees enjoyed the sunshine and company of their foursomes. Prizes were awarded to those with the lowest score, longest drive and most creative outfit.
“This is one of my favorite events of the year, raising money for a good cause and getting to play golf with my team is truly a gift,” said CEO Kurt Ripkey.
