Lost Dunes Golf Outing

October 2, 2023 @ 11:30 am 7:00 pm

There are 20,652 children in foster care in Illinois.

As one of the state’s largest foster care providers, Brightpoint is caring for more than 1,000 of these children and their families. More than 80% of the children enter foster care due to neglect caused by poverty, mental health issues and substance abuse disorder. We can fix those things. Foster care traumatizes children, destroys families, and is steeped in systemic and racial inequality.

By addressing the root causes that cause families to become unstable in the first place, we can PREVENT the trauma that occurs when children are removed from the only family and home they know.

Twenty years ago we started a charity golf outing to support the cause. We’ve held the event each year since.  This year marks our 20th anniversary! Since 2013, the Lost Dunes golf event has raised more than $2 million to support Illinois children and families. We hope you can join us or lend your support this year!
