9th Annual “Run to Remember”
May 4th, 2013
Saturday, May 4th was a beautiful day for Bernie Domagala and his family. Bernie, a resident at St. Pauls House, was selected to be the honorary starter for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s 9th Annual “Run to Remember.” Through this run and events like it, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation provides assistance to the families of fallen or catastrophically injured officers.
Responding to a hostage situation in 1988 Officer Bernie Domagala, of Chicago Police’s Hostage, Barricade and Terrorist Unit, was hit above the eye by an offender’s bullet. Six hours of delicate brain surgery was able to remove that bullet and return him to his wife and three young children.
Fast-forward to today, past many difficult days of rehabilitation and limitations of brain injury, Bernie Domagala inspired over 5,400 runners at the start of the “Run to Remember.” Three of those runners were his absolute favorites, sons Erik, Adam and Craig Domagala. With his wife Denise by his side, they cheered the efforts of their three boys and all of the other race participants that showed their support of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
St. Pauls House, a Chicago “neighborhood within the neighborhood,” is continually thankful for Bernie and all of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department. We thank you all for your public service in protecting the health and safety of Chicagoans and our guests.

2013 Golf Classic returns to Twin Orchard in Long Grove
April 17th, 2013
Foursomes are now registering for the 2013 Lutheran Life Communities Golf Classic. This year’s Golf Classic, to take place Monday, June 10, returns to one of Chicagoland’s finest private golf clubs, Twin Orchard Country Club in Long Grove.
If you’re a golfer who’s overdue for a hole-in-one, this is the place to do it! Motor Werks of Hoffman estates is sponsoring an opportunity on each of Twin Orchard’s two courses for participants to win one of their new, luxury automobiles. And, the two golfers that come closest on each of those selected par 3 holes will have the opportunity to stand over a 50/50 million dollar shot. Half a million dollars will be awarded to the winner, and the other $500,000 will support care for Lutheran Life Community residents who have outlived their financial resources. At the conclusion of the golf, a total of six golfers will try to put their best million dollar swing to the test – two from each of the designated Motor Werks Car Challenge holes, then two more to be selected from a raffle drawing. Guests will root on these six golfers as they have a shot in our very first Million Dollar Hole-in-One Challenge.
This key event for the Lutheran Life Communities Foundation includes lunch, scramble format golf, hole contests, cocktail reception, dinner and awards. Please consider participation in the 2013 Lutheran Life Communities Golf Classic.
