Mike Szczepaniak was born, raised and died in Woodridge and his family was one of the very first families to ever live in Woodridge. In fact, the first police dispatch office was run out of the Szczepaniak kitchen. In honor of Mike and his love for the Village of Woodridge, we have set up a “Pay It Forward” 501(c)3 organization to benefit those that are less fortunate than we are. All donations made through the Swing Like Mike golf outing will go toward this organization. Since our first golf outing in 2012, we have made donations to help pay for mortgages, helped remodel homes for families needing special care at home, medical expenses, sending kids to camp, and much, much more.
We have helped many struggling families in Woodridge in their time of need. It’s this commitment to the community and helping those in need that helps the Live Like Mike organization work toward a better future and keep Mike’s memory alive. We’re looking forward to the Live Like Mike golf outing on September 18, 2021 and hope that you will be able to join us. Together we can work toward a better–and healthier–community. Let’s all learn to “Live Like Mike” did!!
