)-- ECH, Every Child’s Hope – a nearly two century-old non-profit that helps families, children and youth in need - will host its 17th Annual Vehicle Assurance Golf Classic and auction September 18th at the Old Hickory Golf Club in St. Peters, Missouri. Alongside sportscaster Randy Karraker of 101 ESPN, the event will raise funds to support the programs of ECH including Family Solutions for Kids and Outpatient Psychiatric Services plus - lunch will be provided by St. Louis’ hometown restaurant Bandana’s Bar-B-Q.
There is a chance to win a number of prizes, including a $10,000 hole in one, a weekend Tesla rental. The auction includes four home game tickets to see the Saint Louis Football Club and hundreds of dollars in automotive, food and beverage products. Prices for the tournament include non-golfing guests/spectators $50, Individuals $275 and teams of four $1,100.
“Last year, 100% of families in the Family Solutions for Kids program remained together following treatment and 64% of youth utilizing our Outpatient Psychiatric Services improved their behavioral problems,” said Michael P. Brennan, ECH’s Chief Executive Officer. “The golf tournament helps the kids we serve receive the therapeutic care they need. Consider this round of golf a double-eagle in a family, child or youth’s future.”
ECH was founded in 1858 as an orphanage for children whose immigrant parents had died from cholera outbreaks. As the needs of St. Louis children and families evolved, their services and programs have adapted to meet those ever-changing needs. Today ECH is no longer an orphanage, but caring for vulnerable children is still at the heart of each program.
