Here at 96.7 The Eagle, we partner with the Rockford Cosmo for their annual golf outing each year. The Rockford Cosmopolitan Club is an organization that loves our community, and makes it their goal to give back. The annual golf outfit divides the money made during that day and gives back to a variety of local organizations...we are super proud to be a part of it.

One of the gentlemen that goes all out on the golf playday, is Francesco Collura. When all of the golfers meet for dinner afterwards, this guy is working the auction tables with such passion and he is always wearing a smile. The "giving back" and raising funds is a driving force behind why Francesco is such an incredible guy.

There was a medical emergency recently involving Francesco, here are the details from the Go Fund Me Page:

Francesco suffered a major heart attack on Feb. 10th and is still in the hospital. While details are to be sorted out and the future for his recovery is uncertain we wanted to assist he and his wife AZ with their future financial obligations. Being a self-employed business owner it is situations such as this that can be quite stressful. We would rather see the two of them focus on his recovery and leave the financials up to this site to assist with. Your generosity is much appreciated during this time. All financials from this fundraiser will go directly to them.

Francesco's brothers from the Rockford Cosmo have put together a FB Page to follow his recovery, HERE.

If you would like to help out this local guy that donates so much of his personal time to give back to the community PLEASE CLICK HERE to help.

From 96.7 The Eagle, Francesco, we look forward to seeing you at the golf outing this summer...get well soon!
