St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
On September 6, 2012, the nine offices of Prudential Select Properties (PSP) joined forces for the 11th annual Prudential Select Properties Golf Tournament to benefit the Sunshine Kids. A total of $15,000 was raised to help children with cancer.
Event chairs Stacy Sander, Jim Cosgrove and Susan Dempsey organized the event, raising funds through golf, a 50/50 drawing, raffle items and an oral auction. Among the donated award items were trips to Branson and the Lake of the Ozarks, David Freese autographed merchandise and an iPad.
Partners in attendance for a round of golf also helped raised funds through sponsorships featuring fun games, snacks and drinks at each hole. Golfers also were treated to a barbecue lunch, coordinated and donated by Kathy Schmiedeskamp of the PSP Des Peres Office.
Aaron and Jamie are two youngsters who participated in the 2012 Texas Hill Country Adventure trip, sharing stories during lunch about their experiences. They were joined by their families and a nurse, Mary. Hearing how the adventure benefited the children, their dialogue helped attendees fully understand how donations impact those in need.
The winning ticket for the Big Shot Jackpot was drawn at the tournament. 100 tickets were sold at $100 each for this 50/50 raffle, allowing the winners to split a total of $5,000.
Prudential Select Properties has been supporting the Sunshine Kids since 2003 and have raised a total of $325,000, which ranks the St. Louis office in the Top 10 Prudential companies nationally for donations since 2007.
