The Midwest Furniture Club kicked off its Annual Golf Outing at Whisper Creek Country Club in Huntley, IL on August 6, 2019 with a shotgun start. This event is held in memory of Bill Krause, and to raise money for his favorite charity, the A.G. Bell Montessori & Alternatives in Education for the Hearing Impaired (www.agbms.org). The Club has raised over $100,000 for the school over the last 10 years with this event. By offering golf packages and sponsorship options, as well as a raffle and auction, everyone can find ways to participate.
