5th Annual Golf Tournament

This year was a “Rain Maker” once again on July 13th at our 5th Annual Golf Tournament.  Thanks to your support, over $49,000 was raised ($13,000 over our goal).  Thank you so much for helping make this year’s golf tournament the largest and most successful to-date!

Funds raised will help us continue to feed, educate and provide safe places to 20,000 children in childcare centers, homes, and afterschool programs in Missouri and Illinois. It’s because of YOU and your support at our fundraisers that this is possible!

Thanks to the increase of support and 150 golfers, an additional golf course was opened at the beautiful Norman K. Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park.

Fun contests like the “Birdie Circle” and “On the Green”, along with members from the Saint Louis Football Club kept golfers entertained throughout the day.  Golfers even had a chance to win a 24 hour experience with a Tesla Model S from Tesla St. Louis.




Our generous golfers are always willing to aim high for the children at the “Cannon 4 Kids” hosted by David Brinker at Mid America Golfing Events.




Unfortunately, no one made the “Hole-in-One” sponsored by Dave Sinclairbut they had fun trying to win this 2017 Buick Encore.

The golfers were able to enjoy many hours of golf before the downpour began.  This had no effect on our golfers, as they took cover and enjoyed a fun evening of dinner and networking.  Thanks to the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park for providing a round of golf to each of the winners of the tournament contests!
