A NOTE FROM THE EVENT FOUNDER

Keith Bank

Founder, KB Partners & Club Champion Golf

Through your support of this event and the American Cancer Society, you are making it possible for all of us to look forward with optimism to a world where cancer will not take our loved ones before their time. 

My loved ones are inspiring me to finish the fight. I continue the fight for my mother-in-law Joyce Chatz who passed too soon at age 57 from breast cancer and for my cousin, David Radman, who left us at an exceptionally young age from melanoma. Their legacy will be associated with the day we find the cure. 

I personally give to the Chicago Select Golf Invitational to honor my sister Linda Katz with Thyroid cancer, and Michelle Whiteside, a dear friend who passed in her 50’s from metastasized non-smokers lung cancer. I do this for my stepmother-in-law, Sandy Chatz, who has courageously battled T Cell Lymphoma via a stem cell transplant and my sister-in-law Cathy Smith with breast cancer, and my stepfather Kurt Herrmann, who passed from pancreatic cancer. These beautiful people and millions of others are relying on our mission, and we cannot fail them

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I ask you to share why you support. Please contact Cailie Furlong at ACS to share your story, photos, and most importantly, by partnering with us as a sponsor for our Chicago Select event. We look forward to seeing you on the course and to one day celebrating together the eradication of this disease.

 

Best Regards,
