Gatherings and Goodwill

Northwestern Mutual - Chicago Golfers Swing for a Cause

Two rain delays didn't dampen the spirits of golfers and a team of volunteers at our third annual golf outing.  The charitable event raised more than $40,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

We're grateful to our financial professionals who played in the tournament, our generous sponsors, and associates who planned and volunteered the day of the event.  The money raised will fund 800 hours of research into new treatments and cures for childhood cancer.
