Throughout the year we hold two to three events for our members. The main purposes of these events are just to have FUN and give our members the opportunity to collaborate and network among each other. At some events we may also give special recognition to our corporate supporters and celebrate our ongoing successes.
We are always open to your suggestions for future event venues and ideas. Contact us at 314-576-7300 or email us at email@example.com
50th Anniversary Golf Tournament & Sports Roundtable
This year, the Buddy Fund reached its 50th Anniversary and to commemorate this momentous event, we enjoyed a beautiful day of golf at Whitmoor Country Club. The event was a tremendous success that capped off the evening by featuring some of our town’s favorite St. Louis Blues players and personalities telling stories and talking shop about all things hockey.
A special thanks to all of those who participated and sponsored this great event. We captured the spirit of the Buddy Fund and the equipment resulting from the generosity of the participants will go a long way to providing disadvantaged youth in our area the opportunity to participate in sports.
