Illinois Fatherhood Initiative Tom Dreesen & Comedians Golf Outing & Dinner hosted at Ravisloe Country Club.
Ravisloe’s favorite son made a return trip to the Club where it all started for him. Tom grew up caddying here to help put food on the table when he was a kid. Now that he has become a world famous comedian, one charity which is dear to his heart is the Illinois Fatherhood Initiative. Their mission is connecting Children and Fathers by actively engaging Fathers in the Education of Children. This past week Tom Dreesen invited several of his famous Comedian friends to play golf with him and help raise funds for this worthwhile organization. Following the event Tom hosted a “Joke Off”, amongst his comedian friends. Such comedians as Jeff Allen, Bill Brady, Seamus O’Brien, Dr. Bill Miller and Wayne Powers just to name a few. Part of the evenings festivities was to honor several World War II veterans in the area. 15 veterans were honored for their service and were recognized for what they did for the world. Ravisloe wishes to thank Tom and the staff from the initiative, for making it a special night for both golfers, supporters and the servicemen and women of our country.
