For Immediate Release
(St. Louis, MO, November 2, 2021) Promise Community Homes (formerly Rainbow Village, “PCH”) announces the success of the organization’s 12th Annual “Chip in for the Promise of Home” Golf Tournament, held on Tuesday, September 28th. The funds raised will support the organization’s mission to provide safe, accessible, and affordable homes to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
More than 150 players and supporters met at WingHaven Country Club to compete in a morning and afternoon flight, and experience special enhancements on course including a liquor tasting, the infamous ‘golf cannon’, hand-rolled cigars, and hole in one prizes. Erin Eberhard, Promise Community Homes’ Executive Director, sent each flight off with sincere thanks. “On behalf of our residents, staff, and incredible partners, we’re humbled by the continued passion and generosity shown by our sponsors and supporters – old and new”, she said. The Engelhardt Foundation served as Title Sponsor, with TCG Services and Burns & McDonnell as Eagle Sponsors.
During cocktail hour, awards were given to the flight winners, closest to the pin, and raffle winners. Promise Community Homes was delighted to see Bommarito Automotive award Joel Birk with a new set of golf clubs as he sank a hole in one of 140 yards.
Promise Community Homes is grateful to all who lend support to its residents. A photo album of the event can be found at promisecommunityhomes.org/events/golf-2/
