One of the great avenues of the world, Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago, is now home to the "Tartan Art on the Avenue" public art exhibit, featuring 50 uniquely decorated giant golf balls located along Chicago's Magnificent Mile and throughout the Chicagoland area.
The exhibit is part of Magnificent Moments , an officially sanctioned charitable fundraising campaign of the upcoming 39th Ryder Cup , which will be played Sept. 25-30 at historic Medinah (Ill.) Country Club. The campaign is raising money for two local charities - Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana and The Illinois PGA Foundation - by hosting a series of "Magnificent Moments" in Chicago.
"We are very excited to roll out this wonderful exhibit in celebration of the Ryder Cup matches," said Doug Porter, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana. "The Magnificent Moments team has worked very hard to develop this unique collection of golf balls to raise awareness and important funds for the ongoing works of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana and the Illinois PGA Foundation."
