I'm not one to ask for donations, but since these people are very close friends, I thought I'd try and help them out by posting here.
We are having our second golf outing and auction fundraiser in August 2004, at Villa Olivia in Bartlett, Illinois, to raise money for children with disabilities. Our daughter, Kristin, was born with a rare neurological condition that left her severely handicapped. To honor her memory, we started a not-for-profit foundation called Kristinís Klub to raise money for some of the organizations that helped us while Kristin was alive.
Our foundation is run from our hearts and, therefore, 100% of all proceeds are distributed to the organizations that helped us. During our golf outing in August 2002, we were able to raise more that $15, 000 and donated every penny to the following organizations: Clearbrook CHILD program, The Lissencephaly Network, MakeĖA-Wish Foundation, Countryside Respite & Coachís Care Center. These organizations want to help so many children and families, but unfortunately, federal and state funding are often very limited. The services they provided were invaluable to us when Kristin was alive and we, in turn, want to help support them to insure they will be able to continue to offer services to all the families that need them.
We hope you can support Kristinís Klub with a donation or gift certificate to use for our raffle or auction. These are the most valuable areas of our fund raising, as they generate the most income. All donorís names and businesses will be included in our printed materials.
If you would be interested in sponsoring a hole on the golf course, please call for details.
We want to thank you in advance for your support to this very important cause. It is people like you who can really make a difference. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us.
Maureen & Jim Rabe
President and Vice President of Kristinís Klub

For people who would like to golf, price is $100 for golf and dinner. The golf outing in on August 20th, at Villa Olivia. Contact me for more details if interested.
I was thinking we, CLSB, could sponsor a hole for the golf outing. Sponsorship for a hole is only $500.00. They will make up a sign with our logo, and put it on a certain hole during the outing, showing our support/sponsorship. To make a financial donation, please use my PayPal account, [email protected]
If you would like to donate a gift for the raffle, please call me 630-461-9872, or PM me with what you want to donate and I'll take care of picking it up.
This really is a good cause, run by some really Great People. There are over 1700 members on this board, if everyone donated just .50 cents, we would raise over $850.00.
So please, donate what you can.
Thanks in advance,
