Field of Greens makes big charitable contribution


CHICAGO -- The White Sox Field of Greens Golf Outing for Charity, which took place Monday at Harborside International Golf Center in Chicago, netted $100,000 to benefit pediatric cancer treatment and research programs at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital. That total was significantly more than last year and the second-best year ever for the team's golf or bowling events going back to '06.

"You have to remember what you're there for," said White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn, who joined manager Robin Ventura, members of Ventura's coaching staff, teammates and former players such as Carlton Fisk, Ron Kittle and Bo Jackson, to name a few, at the event. "Obviously, you're there to have a good time and play some golf, but the most important thing is to raise money, and I think they did a good job of that."
