The Lynn Panici Golf Outing

Monday, September 26th | Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. at Idlewild Country Club

Twenty-two years ago, Anthony Panici found himself searching for a way to make something positive out of a HORRIBLE situation, and thus began the annual Lynn Panici Golf Outing.


Sponsored by JDM Steel and The Merlo Family, the Lynn Panici Golf Outing will be hosted at the Idlewild and Flossmoor Country Clubs on September 26, 2022.


Bring your family and friends to join us for a wonderful day of fun as we celebrate both the lives of those lost and those that survived. Your support of this event helps make a difference in the lives of thousands of people diagnosed with cancer each year as well as their loved ones.
