Driving For Dreams is Here

Register Now for our Annually Awesome Event. The Up Foundation is Dedicated to Bringing Big Fun to Benefit a Great Cause.


The 10ᵗʰ Annual Driving For Dreams is Finally Here!

For nearly a decade, helping kids in need has been the singular mission of The Up Foundation.  The contributions of nearly $1,000,000 from the Driving for Dreams charity golf outing has impacted the lives of children across the world.  Over the years, we have had the privilege to partner with world class organizations such as Autism Speaks, St Jude, and the Children's Heart Foundation, all while maintaining a strong local presence. 

Join us this summer, as we continue our mission to help kids in need.

"Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI) is looking forward to partnering with The Up Foundation and the Semmelhack Family to make this year's Driving for Dreams golf outing the most successful ever. Through the ongoing support of corporate sponsors and donors, The Up Foundation continues to make a positive impact on the lives of children and their families. Their support of RMHC-CNI this year will assist in our ability to continue to provide the care, comfort and sense of community to so many families of hospitalized children during a very stressful time in their lives."
