After a rare liver disease racked the body of Chris Piazzi, he received a double transplant that saved his life. The president of Mundelein Community Bank and the chair of the College Lake of County Foundation understands the need for up to date research for the terminally ill and those with serious diseases. The only way he would live through this disease would be a dual transplant of liver and kidney.
The Foundation has decided to honor Piazzi at the 2017 Scholarship Golf Classic for his service to their board. The CLC Foundation helps those in need of education and training to join the workforce. Piazzi wrote about how his condition taught him about the fragility of life. The tournament will serve drinks and appetizers and include a raffle. After the tournament, there will be an awards dinner. The CLC Foundation connects students with education grants and scholarships to help further their careers. This awards dinner will benefit them. The proceeds will help connect students with the right funds. Event sponsors include: Legat Architects, Cancer Treatment Centers of America® at Midwestern Regional Medical Center and First Bank of Highland Park. Proceeds from the tickets, raffle, and dinner benefit the CLC Foundation scholarships and grants fund.
