Mark Militzer, chairman of the Glow Ball Tournament, and Tony Diebold recently presented a check for $2,275 to Building Futures. Building Futures is a group of design professionals from St. Louis striving to inspire the youth of the city through design build workshops and led by Frank Lorberbaum and Gay Lorberbaum.
In October of 2015, the Construction Leadership Council’s annual Glow Ball Tournament attracted 68 golfers. “We had a fun time playing golf and raising money for this cause,” Militzer said. “The CLC chose Building Futures as the recipients of the proceeds, because this group teaches children about construction, what skills are needed, and how to use their creative minds.”
The CLC’s check is in recognition that workforce development is a critical issue facing the industry. In addition to Militzer, the Glow Ball Golf Committee included Lee Frea, Richard Vaughan, Steve McFarlane and Brandon Leetch.
