Why is this Invitational important?

In Illinois, one in seven households spend more than half of their income on housing. Housing is more than just a roof over somebody's head. Decent affordable housing provides stability for families and children. Owning a home provides a family with a sense of dignity and pride. Good housing contributes greatly to thriving communities. Housing is a catalyst for civic involvement and a stimulus for community based organizations. Safe homes and neighborhoods help to build social stability and security.

Who is our beneficiary?

On September 23, 2020 James V. Smith, passed away. James left behind his wife and family. Will County Habitat for Humanity (WCHFH) wishes to keep Jim’s spirit alive.

Jim Smith was a dedicated community volunteer and held many positions of leadership during his years of service to Will County; including one of WCHFH’s dedicated appraisers. Jim’s welcoming personality, giving spirit, and willingness to help others made him special to all who knew him.

WCHFH is elated to honor Jim through a Memorial Build that will take place in Joliet, on 419 High Street. Jim's wife Jan has graciously donated this property in memory of Jim, where volunteers across Will County will join together in support of the James V. Smith Memorial Build in honor of his name. The home that will be constructed will provide a family in need a decent, safe and affordable place to call home.

Jim was a dedicated Rotarian. His wife Jan has talked about the many trips they had taken, where she believes that Jim was the only one to vacation and still fulfill his obligation to meet as a Rotarian. Some of Jim's many stops to Rotary Clubs while vacationing include: Vienna, Paris, and Italy!!

The funds from this year’s Applied Underwriters Executive Golf Invitational are to help fund the James V. Smith Memorial Build in Joliet, IL. Jan Smith, Jim's widow, has generously provided the land donation at 419 High St. Joliet, IL, to get the project started. We invite you to be a part of this memorable opportunity to keep Jim's spirit alive
