It was a beautiful, hot, FUN, day of golf on July 12, 2018 at United 4 Children’s 6th Annual Golf Tournament at Norman K. Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park. Golfer’s enjoyed wonderful lunch provided by Russo’s Catering, followed by a Shotgun Start at 12:30.  The golfers had an opportunity to participate in many fun contests including our new Whacky Putting Contest!  The golfers received plenty of cold beverages and snacks provided by our lovely beverage cart teams. After the tournament, golfers sat down to a delicious dinner provided by the course followed by the team and individual awards announcement and a silent auction.

We had 115 golfers at the tournament and raised $54,000! Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in this event! The funds raised will help support high quality childcare and afterschool programs, so that families can have peace of mind knowing their children, regardless of ability, are receiving the best care possible and given every opportunity to succeed.
