(Wood Dale, IL, March 29, 2011) – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that it will be holding its first annual charity golf outing, “18 Holes For Hope,” on Tuesday, May 10. The event will take place at the Glen Club in Glenview, IL and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.

Since its founding in 1881, the American Red Cross has been the nation's premier emergency response organization. Today, in addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers compassionate services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; support and comfort for military members and their families; the collection, processing and distribution of lifesaving blood and blood products; educational programs that promote health and safety; and international relief and development programs.

“The Red Cross is truly grateful for the partnership and support of DKI. It is because of partners like them the Red Cross is able to provide vital services in our communities that contribute to the resiliency of our friends and neighbors following disasters,” said Amanda Wilander, Manager of Resource Development for the American Red Cross of Greater Chicago.

“In our industry we deal with the effects of disasters, natural or accidental, every day. We know how much of an impact the American Red Cross has on communities all across the world. Recent tragedies like the earthquakes in Japan and Haiti prove how important these efforts are and we are glad that we can support such a worthy organization,” said Dale Sailer, DKI President.

Registration for “18 Holes for Hope” is open to the public and will include a round of golf, lunch, prizes, and more. It will be a fun-filled day for all that attend.
