Save the Date for the 14th Annual Event!
July 30, 2018
Over the past thirteen years, this tournament has generated more than $5 million to advance the lifesaving mission of the NKFI. Over 30 million people in the United States are living with kidney disease today, so their efforts are vital to improve the livelihoods of people affected by the disease to curtail this number for the future.
Congratulations to the 2017 Winners
The 13th Annual Middle Market Open expanded to four elite courses, sold out in record time, and was the most successful event yet. 445 golfers from the private equity and deal making community came together on one day to raise more than $750,000 for the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois.
From all of us at the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois and the people we serve throughout the state, thank you for your incredible support and generosity!
A very special thanks also goes out to our board and committee members and our special guest, University of Illinois men's golf coach, Mike Small.
