Sixth Annual BHCG Golf Outing Raises More Than $50,000 for Sojourner Family Peace Center
Our sixth annual golf outing, On Course Fore Safe & Healthy Families, held at Ironwood Golf Course on August 17, was a smashing success! More than 130 golfers enjoyed a great day on the course, raising more than $50,000 to benefit Sojourner Family Peace Center, the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin, serving more than 10,000 clients each year. Milwaukee-based Sojourner provides an array of support aimed at helping families affected by domestic violence achieve safety, justice and well-being.
The sixth annual golf outing was our most successful ever and another prime example of our unwavering commitment to responsible corporate citizenship. Everyone involved (sponsors, golfers, auction item donors and volunteers) was truly motivated to raise money for this critical community resource and their generosity is greatly appreciated. The BHCG golf outings have now raised more than $200,000 to benefit area nonprofits.
Sojourner President and CEO Carmen Pitre said, “We were honored to be this year’s recipient of the BHCG’s Annual Golf Outing. The health of women, children and families is essential to our work of ending domestic violence in our community. The proceeds from this event will help us provide shelter, services, safety and – above all – hope to families in need of support. Thank you, BHCG, for your substantial contribution to our organization.”
Said Dave Osterndorf, BHCG’s strategic consultant and chief actuary at Centivo (the event’s Platinum Sponsor and a BHCG strategic partner), “Both BHCG and Centivo recognize what an invaluable resource Sojourner is in this community. Their work contributes to bringing peace, safety and health to the people who need it most.”
In addition to Platinum Sponsor Centivo, premier sponsors of the golf outing included Gold Sponsor Artemis by Nomi Health, and Silver Sponsors, the Milwaukee Business Journal and the Multhauf Foundation, Ltd.
