Jeff Grubich, Audio Out’s CEO and Founder, has organized the industry event in the wake of the passing of his mother
This past May, Jeff Grubich, CEO and founder of Peru, Illinois-based recording studio, Audio Out, lost his mother, Nancy Welch Grubich, to COVID-19. In the wake of her passing, Grubich, who himself had suffered a stroke in fall 2019, began planning a golf outing to benefit COVID-19 research.
“She was an amazing mother,” Grubich says. “Everything just kind of sprung up so quick with everything with the COVID. She was in the hospital for a little over a month. We thought things were going a lot better and then with her being on the ventilator — it just took a complete 180. We’re basically, the family, we had a meeting with the doctors and we thought that it was going to be completely fine and it was a complete 180. So it was a very… It sucked basically. She’s an amazing mother and she was a teacher’s aide. She helped so many kids in the area and helped them grow up and be the adults they are today.”
Jeff Grubich talks with AVNation’s Llanor Alleyne about his golf outing to benefit COVID-19 research.
The golf outing, scheduled for October 17, 2020 (pending pandemic related changes), at Deer Park Golf Club in Oglesby, Illinois, carries a $75 per person fee, which includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, raffles and a live band. Proceeds from the outing will got to OSF Healthcare, where his mother was cared for in May and where he recovered from his stroke.
“I was actually airlifted there to OSF and they did a great job, too,” says Grubich. “So that’s why it’s goingto OSF with the help that they’ve done for me and for my mother. Basically all of the proceeds are going towards the COVID research at OSF Healthcare.”
