On September 6, 2012, the ten 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 this fabulous event that raised funds through golf, a 50/50 drawing, raffle items and an oral auction. Some of the fabulous award items that were donated for the festivities included trips to Branson and the Lake of the Ozarks, as well as David Freese autographed items and an iPad from Office Essentials.
Generous partners in attendance for a round of golf also helped raised funds through sponsorships that featured fun games, snacks and drinks at each hole. Golfers were treated to a barbecue lunch that was coordinated and donated by Kathy Schmiedeskamp of the PSP Des Peres Office. After the event dinner and drinks were provided while raffle winners were announced.
Two youngsters (Aaron and Jamie), who participated in the 2012 Texas Hill Country Adventure trip, shared stories during lunch about their experiences. They were joined by their families and the nurse, Mary, who attended the trip with them. It was an honor to hear how the adventure benefited the children, as 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. The 100 tickets that were sold at $100 each for this 50/50 raffle allowed 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.
