Cope Charity Golf Outing Raises Funds for Children Battling Cancer
Alton, IL – Cope Plastics, Inc. hosted their 13th annual charity golf fundraiser on Saturday, October 19th at Rolling Hills Golf Course. Employees past and present, friends, family, and numerous business partners converged to hit the greens for a great cause. 19 teams of all ages attended the four-person scramble-style event that also included closest to the pin and longest drive contests. Attendees received mulligans, door prizes, and dinner, as well as awards for first place in both A and B flights. In addition, golfer John Germain was the first player in tournament history to sink a hole in one.
Gold Level sponsors included: Daniel & Henry, Enterprise, CJ Schlosser, Acropolis, UMB Bank, Cast Nylons, Plaskolite, Kilwins, and King Plastics. There were 16 additional Silver Level sponsors and UMB also donated four all-inclusive hockey tickets that helped raise $645 in raffle ticket sales.
Participants and sponsors generated a grand total of $8400 to benefit Friends of Kids With Cancer, a local organization devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for cancer and blood-related diseases. The Cope team is dedicated to supporting Friends of Kids With Cancer in providing educational, emotional, and recreational support to children fighting these diseases.
Rolling Hills Golf Course is located in Godfrey, Illinois, just minutes from the Great River Road and a short drive from downtown St. Louis. For over 30 years, Rolling Hills has been providing an enjoyable golf experience and exceptional value for thousands of golfers. They are locally owned and operated, striving to deliver great golf and uniquely personal service to long-time players and beginners alike.
Sherri Boeck, Cope Controller, has helped organize the event since its inception. “We’ve raised a total of $85,179 in those 13 years and we’re honored to help kids with cancer be kids. Together we can and will continue making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer. The planning committee is thankful for the generous support from our sponsors, our golfers, and our volunteers and we hope to see even stronger participation next year,” said Boeck.
