Western Utility Raises Funds for National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Chicago-based contractor Western Utility is proud to have recently sponsored the 39th Annual Cohn Weil Memorial MS Outing that took place on July 10th at Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Ill. The all-day event featured a fabulous golf tournament with morning and afternoon tee times on a Donald Ross-designed course, a buffet lunch and the option to play mahjong, canasta or bridge. The evening included a cocktail reception, auction and gourmet dinner.

Bill Sanchez, Business Development Director at Western Utility, who is also an elected member of the Board of Trustees for the Greater Illinois Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, was among the VIPs who attended the event. “I was honored to be part of the golf outing,” Sanchez stated. “I have seen the devastating effects of this disease and am honored to continue the fight.”

Western is very involved with and has raised a great deal for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Sponsored events include the Dinner of Champions, held last Fall at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium. The event raised more than $1,250,000. The company has also sponsored and participated in Muck Fest, a 5k run through 14 obstacles for fun and team building, held at the Lake County Fairgrounds at 1060 E. Peterson Rd. in Grayslake, Ill. In September 2016.

Thank you and congratulations to all for helping eradicate MS forever!
