The 13th Annual Dudley Henry Memorial Golf Tournament The 13th Annual Dudley Henry Memorial Golf Tournament was a success once again. It was a great day with wonderful weather. We had 26 teams and 45 hole sponsors and I want to say "THANK YOU' for your support to the Children's Care Corp. I also want to thank the businesses and individuals that supported the tournament with prize donations and hole sponsors. I want to give Patti & Bob Hahn a great big "THANK YOU" for all their help.

I also want to say "THANK YOU" to all the ladies and men who registered golfers, sold tickets, drove the drink carts, cooked the food, put hole sponsor signs out & picked them up, cleaned up and anything else that needed to be done.

Brief History

Dudley joined the Centralia Elks Lodge in 1993 and after going through the chairs, served as ER for the 98-99 Lodge year. While a Lodge Trustee, He passed away suddenly in March of 2001 at the age of 56. Dudley knew from a personal experience how important the then named Ill Elks Crippled Childrens' Corporation was and what it meant to the Families it reached. About the time Dudley was 15 years old he lost an older brother from injuries he had received on the school playground at an earlier age. He suffered a crippling lower back injury and went from being on crutches, to a wheel chair, then bed ridden, and eventually death, all over a period of time. After joining the Elks the then ILL Elks Crippled Children's Corporation was very near and dear to Dudley because of his personal experience. Upon Dudley's passing, memorials totaling $4,000 were donated to the IE CCC on his behalf. It was shortly thereafter the Lodge voted to change the name of the Annual Golf Tournament fund raiser for IE CCC to the Dudley Henry Memorial Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the Tournament enable the IE CCC to provide medical and financial help to Illinois residents under the age of twenty-one and their families. Donations also support students seeking degrees in the fields of physical and occupational therapy. In 2008 the Corporation underwent a name change to Illinois Elks Children's Care Corporation. The name change did not affect the existing programs. In fact, the name change will enable the IE CCC to reach more children and their families by symbolizing a clearer description of what it represents.
