2005 Marklund Heroes
Kathy and Bob Korvas
with Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union
My wife Kathy Korvas and I have supported numerous charity and civic organizations. Our philanthropic efforts began by holding holiday charity fundraisers in 1986 from our home. We supported Marklund as our primary cause for over 28 years (1988-2015). We participated as volunteers in several capacities serving as members on a variety of boards or committees. Unofficially we were responsible for raising in excess of a million dollars either directly, indirectly, in-kind or cash donations during our time participating. This included acting as Chairman or Co-Chairman of the celebrity golf outing. Serving for over a decade, I was responsible for working with or introducing dozens of local sports celebrities (participants like Jose Cardenal, Bob Love, Gayle Sayers, Billy Williams, to name a few) to the Marklund mission. Through our friends, acquaintances or family we arranged for NICOR, Grainger, McDonald's and the Chicago Bulls to participate in several ways. During my stewardship the fundraising more than doubled to under $200,000. It became highly regarded as a successful premier fund raising event.
We have supported many other worthwhile organizations and continue to do so. Among those we have supported or participated include Dwayne Wade’s, Wade's World Foundation, the Illinois Special Olympics, American Cancer Society to name a few.

Marklund thanks Kathy and Bob for their generous support and friendship over the years through to today. They truly do help to make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities!
