The 11th Annual Swinging Fore Dreams Golf Tournament sponsored by S. M. Wilson & Co. raised $28,000 for The Dream Factory of St. Louis on May 15, 2017 at Glen Echo Country Club. The total amount raised includes $20,000 from entry fees and an additional $8,000 through sponsorships and a silent auction.
More than 50 construction-related companies and organizations supported the event, which helps children with critical and chronic illnesses to realize their dreams.
Since 2007, S. M. Wilson has helped raise $335,000 for The Dream Factory of St. Louis through the Swinging Fore Dreams tournament.
“With help from our partners and subcontractors, we have been able to help grant more than 65 dreams to area children,” stated Amy Berg, President of S. M. Wilson. “We look forward to granting 65 more dreams in the future.”
The Dream Factory of Saint Louis was founded in 1983 — one of 36 non-profit Dream Factory chapters around the country. The Dream Factory is the only children’s wish-granting organization that does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness. The organization believes children with chronic illnesses and disorders also suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain.
