S. M. WILSON’S SWINGING FORE DREAMS 2016 GOLF TOURNAMENT RAISES $20,000 FOR THE DREAM FACTORY OF ST. LOUIS
St. Louis, Mo., June 20, 2016 – The 10th Annual Swinging Fore Dreams Golf Tournament sponsored by S. M. Wilson & Co. raised $20,000 for The Dream Factory of St. Louis on May 16, 2016 at Glen Echo Country Club. More than 50 construction-related companies and organizations supported the event, which helps children with critical and chronic illnesses to realize their dreams.
“Since 2007, S. M. Wilson has helped raise more than $319,000 for The Dream Factory of St. Louis,” said Amy Berg, President of S. M. Wilson. “This annual event underscores our core commitment to serve and enrich the community with passion and inspiration.”
“The St. Louis Chapter of Dream Factory would like to thank S. M. Wilson for once again holding their annual golf tournament to benefit our chapter,” said Mike Gaterman, President of Dream Factory of St. Louis. “We are so grateful for the donation year after year; with your help, we are able to continue to grant dreams to critically and chronically ill children ages three to eighteen. The money you raise stays in the St. Louis area to benefit local children.”
The Dream Factory of Saint Louis was founded in 1983 — one of 36 non-profit Dream Factory chapters around the country. The Dream Factory is the only children’s wish-granting organization that does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness. The organization believes children with chronic illnesses and disorders also suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain.
