First I would like to congratulate our Past President, Chris Janke, for a job well done in 2014-15! He has many accomplishments to be proud of over the past year including but not limited to breaking the 200 member mark and successful implementation of the ambassador program for new cosmos.

Enclosed is information regarding the 2015 Rockford Cosmopolitan Club Charity Golf Classic to be held at Forest Hills CC and Rockford CC on Friday August 14th.  It has everything you need to sign up for golf and/or sponsor in many ways and it can all be done by going to the Cosmo website listed at  The whole process is very easy and convenient.


The golf committee is making this final push as we are down to the final month before the big day.  Please remember that this is our largest fundraiser of the year, bringing in $35 – 40,000 that we give back to several local charities every April.


Please help by doing 1 or some of the following “areas of need”:

1) Sign up as a golfer or gather a foursome for the outing.  It costs $160 per person and is a great value.

2) Pass this information along to 3-5 of your friends, business associates, etc. so we can fill both courses and raise lots of money for charity!

3) Contribute silent auction items or just donate $50 to cover the many auction items that we always have.  Any type of donation is appreciated!

4) Buy a tee sign for $125 or it is only $100 if you sign up with a foursome.


We really appreciate anything you can do to participate and spread the word to others.  We have a great club with big hearts so please help in any way possible.  Please let me know of your plans as soon as possible.


Thanks so much in advance!


Best wishes,


Joe Goken

President 2015-'16
