Event Information

The American Cancer Society's 37th annual William T. White, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, July 10, 2017 at the prestigious Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest.  In addition to hosting the 2017 BMW Championship, Conway Farms is ranked #10 on Golf Digest’s Top Illinois Golf Courses and #187 on Golf Digest’s America’s Second 100 Greatest Golf Courses. The Tom Fazio award-winning course sits on 209 acres and is designed around the traditions of Scottish link golf. 

A challenging day of golf will be capped off with an extended cocktail reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres, silent auction and raffle.

We are excited to share that 100% of the proceeds from this year's tournament will go directly toward cancer research. We will also be honoring Kathy Mignin, long time supporter of the William T. White, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament. 


In 1981, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, William T. White, Jr. coordinated a golf tournament to bring friends and interested people from the community together to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society. In recognition of his generosity, the tournament is now named in his honor after his death from leukemia in 1993. Now, 35 years later, William T. White, Jr.’s son, William “Bill” T. White, III serves as the event’s co-chair.  Since the event’s inception, it has raised over $2 million to fund research and the many support services that the American Cancer Society provides.
