Normandy, MO – Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART) Local 36 recently held it’s 18th Annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the St. Vincent Home for Children, raising $20,000 for the children’s treatment facility.

“Proceeds from this annual Tournament allowed us to present $20,000 to St. Vincent to help fund their objectives in 2015 – to enhance current residential brief-stay capabilities, expand home based services, and implement an out-patient Substance Abuse Treatment Program,” said Local 36 President and Business Manager David C. Zimmermann.

For the past several years, Local 36 has donated $20,000 to the home after each year’s tournament, whether that is what the event raised or not.
