Mel Foster Co.’s Putt for Charity event raised $15,000 for the Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. The money collected from the November 8th Putt for Charity event will help empower, strengthen, and increase self-reliance of homeless single parent families.
150 golfers and “caddies” enjoyed 18 themed holes of miniature golf and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, music and a cash bar. Two lucky winners tried for a chance to win $5,000 at a hole-in-one contest sponsored by Radon Solutions.
“To have Mel Foster Co. as a partner and raise money to help homeless families turn their lives around and to become productive members of the Quad City communities is rewarding,” commented Sister Mary Ann Vogel of Humility of Mary Housing, Inc.
“With the help of our generous partners, we can help Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. deliver help to individuals and families in need,” said Kris Ratigan, director of corporate marketing of Mel Foster Co. “Since the inception in 2009, this was our largest donation yet! A strong sense of family and community prevails at Mel Foster Co. and with our sponsors.
