September 2018: Colorado Springs Country Club raised over $30,000 from its September 9th golf tournament to support The Home Front Cares and Special Kids Special Families. This is the largest amount CSCC has raised for local charities since the tournament’s inception. The annual tournament attracted 128 number of golfers.
Colorado Springs Country Club is a private, member-owned club consisting of approximately 450 members. Golfing and nongolfing members alike supported the fundraising efforts. Several members sponsored the tournament as individuals as well as through corporate giving. In total, nearly 75 individuals and corporations provided cash donations. In addition, a silent auction of over 30 donated goods and services followed the golf tournament.
“The fact that we raised this amount of money from a relatively smaller club says a lot about our membership,” states Ruthie Lohrig-Kline, chair of the 2018 tournament. “We are extremely proud to be able to support two very deserving organizations that provide assistance to those in need in our community.”
We are SO grateful to all the participants, volunteers and sponsors for helping raise money to help fund our programs for children and adults with disabilities.
