Wonder Works to Host Third Annual Golf Outing to Benefit the Non-Profit Museum

Children's Museum Outing to be Sponsored by Marsh Inc. on June 22 at Oak Brook Golf Club

Oak Park, Illinois, June 2, 2005 - Wonder Works, a Children's Museum in Oak Park, will host its third annual Wide World of Wonder Works Golf outing on Wednesday, June 22 at Oak Brook Golf Club in Oak Brook.

Tickets are $225 each and $800 per foursome. They are available at Wonder Works and by calling outing chair Michael Griffin at 312.440.6903. The event begins at 12pm and includes lunch, a round of golf (tee-times by reservation from 1-3pm) and a silent auction and refreshments at the end of the afternoon. Space is limited, so early reservations are requested. Non-golfers and those not able to participate in the afternoon event are encouraged to join the group for the closing reception and silent auction from 5-8pm on the clubhouse terrace.

Marsh Inc., the worlds leading risk and insurance services firm, will serve as sponsor for the second year in a row. Additional sponsorships are available.

"Last year we raised $10,000," says event chairman Michael Griffin. "In addition to using the money for general operating funds, a portion will be used to provide free field trips for schools and groups that cant afford to otherwise visit Wonder Works."

The outing is being organized by a committee consisting of David Nikolai, Cameron Olig, Kimberly Tapscott, Elizabeth Smith, James Madura, John Harris and Alexandra Lee.

For more information, contact Michael Griffin at 312.440.6903 or board president John Harris at 708.227.5313. Or call the museum at 708.383.4815.
