All proceeds from the golf outing benefit the Timothy C. Klotz Memorial Fund. Over the past 17 years, we have presented local organizations with over $300,000. The Tim Klotz Memorial Fund received the 2009 Foundation Philanthropic Award from the Southwest Suburban Philanthropic Network and “2011 Donor of the Year” for Guardian Angel Community Services.
In recent years, the Timothy C. Klotz Memorial Fund committee decided to focus fundraising efforts on local non-profit organizations. We have presented over $200,000 to many organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will and Grundy Counties, Guardian Angel Community Services, Easter Seals, Children’s Memorial Hospital, Habitat for Humanity Restore, Joliet Junior College, University of St. Francis, and various other organizations and individuals in need.
We have also presented Joliet Catholic Academy with over $60,000 for student scholarships in academics, leadership, athletics, and financial need. Also, the boy’s locker room in the Student Activity Center was named in Tim’s honor.
