Money raised supports union’s PATCH children’s charity
Painters and Allied Trades District Council 58 is thanking the Florissant Golf Club, unions, sponsors, and volunteers that supported its Annual Page A. Lucks Memorial Charity Golf Scramble fundraiser for the union’s PATCH (Painters and Allied Trades for Children’s Hope) children’s charity.
“Our golf scramble was a huge success, and your donations and all proceeds from the golf tournament will go directly to help out children in need,” said District Council 58 Business Manager and Secretary-Treasurer Gregg Smith in a letter to sponsors and participants.
A total of the funds raised at the tournament was unavailable at Labor Tribune press time.
PATCH provides charity assistance to the local communities it serves through its “backpacks for kids” back-to-school program and donations of time and materials to paint dozens of non-profit organization’s offices and facilities throughout the region.
Focusing exclusively on children, The PATCH Foundation addresses literacy, education, childhood illnesses, children’s emotional well-being, childhood poverty, homelessness, and children’s health care.
Funds raised through District Council 58’s golf tournaments stays in our local communities in eastern Missouri and southern Illinois.
