BCI Golf Tournament on Oct. 7 Will Honor Jim Lang
Boone Center, Inc. (BCI) is seeking golfers, sponsors, and donors for its annual golf tournament on Monday, October 7. The event will honor the late Jim Lang who served on BCI’s board of directors for 10 years and was its president when he passed away unexpectedly last September.
The Jim Lang Memorial will take place at Bogey Hills Country Club in St. Charles. All proceeds will benefit BCI and its mission to enrich the lives of adults with disabilities and their families by providing a choice of fulfilling work along a continuum of employment opportunities.
“Jim was a trusted adviser and true friend, and much of our recent success is due to his strategic leadership,” said Tony Spielberg, BCI CEO. “We are grateful to the Lang family for their earnestness in honoring Jim this way.”
Registration for the tournament is $200 per golfer. The format is a four-person scramble with cash prizes for the top finishers. Each golfer will also receive a box lunch and heavy hors d’oeuvres dinner, tee gifts, on-course drinks, the chance to win fun games and competitions, and two drinks with dinner. Non-golfers can purchase a dinner-only ticket for $50.
“Supporting the Jim Lang Memorial Golf Tournament shows that you share Jim’s passion for creating purposeful employment opportunities for people with disabilities,” added Spielberg.

Boone Center, Inc. (BCI) works to enrich the lives of adults with disabilities and their families by providing a choice of fulfilling work along a continuum of employment opportunities. BCI was founded in 1959 by two women driven by a desire to better serve employment needs for individuals with disabilities. Today, BCI is a national advocate for disability employment. The nonprofit’s Employment Continuum Model focuses on full employment that provides ongoing support so that men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities may gain access to job of their choice and ability. BCI employs over 300 adults with disabilities at its production facilities and through its competitive employment programs. In January 2019, BCI opened the Skills Center, a first-of-its-kind vocational training facility for people with disabilities. The Skills Center partners directly with local businesses to expand their workforce, provide new, competitive, integrated employment opportunities to those living with disabilities, and advance inclusion and diversity in our community.
