The 15th annual Paul Fabbri Memorial Golf Outing will be
held Saturday, September 22 at the Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling at 1:30 p.m. Proceeds raised will benefit the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) in memory of Paul Fabbri.
Paul “Paulie” Fabbri, whose formative years were spent in the Edison Park area of Chicago and Morton Grove, became the star point guard on the Niles North regional championship basketball team in 1985. Collapsing following a workout in 1988, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 21. After Paul’s first surgery and radiation treatment, he recovered to enjoy several healthy years. Unfortunately, his tumor recurred and he endured two more major operations prior to his death on June 13, 1998 at the age of 31. Paul never took people for granted and always expressed genuine gratitude for whatever
kindness he received. A favorite expression of his was, “You didn’t have to do this.” The kindness of people
really touched him. His courageous fight inspired his family and friends to build on his legacy.
This annual golf outing fundraiser, coordinated by family and friends, has directly funded research grants to brain tumor specialists advancing new treatments the last several years. Proceeds have been utilized by the ABTA to
help families living with, and fighting brain tumors. To date, the Paul Fabbri Memorial Golf Outing
has raised over $240,000.
Golf packages are $125 and include golf, lunch and dinner. For those who would like to attend the dinner only, the cost is $35 per person. Registration begins at 12 noon, with lunch available at 12:30 p.m., and a "shotgun" start will begin at 1:30 p.m. Immediately following the round, a cocktail hour will begin at 6:30, followed by dinner, a raffle drawing and program at 7:15 p.m.
