Lagerlof Cares, the charitable extension of Lagerlof, LLP, recently donated $15,000 to Union Station Homeless Services with funds raised through Lagerlof’s annual golf tournament.
Lagerlof Cares hosted their third annual golf fundraiser benefiting Union Station Homeless Services on Nov. 3 at Brookside Golf Club. The tournament featured 86 golfers and hosted more than 100 attendees for the dinner reception.
“We were thrilled to be able to support Union Station Homeless Services as our tournament beneficiary this year. We believe in the work that they do and how they support our community,” said Lagerlof managing partner Joshua Driskell. “We are so thankful to all our tournament sponsors and participants that helped us raise the $15,000 to support this great organization.”
Lagerlof Cares selected Union Station Homeless Services as its beneficiary to support Union Station’s effort of “providing services and resources with the mission of recognizing the inherent value, dignity and humanity of the people they serve,” according to a press release. Union Station’s team works to end homelessness through housing solutions, supportive services and connection to community.
“Union Station Homeless Services has been working in the community for 50 years, providing services and housing solutions. With our ‘Housing First’ approach, we’ve achieved an impressive 97% retention rate, meaning that 97% of the people we house, stay housed,” said Anne Miskey, president and CEO of USHS. “Only with the caring and generosity of organizations like Lagerlof, LLP, that we are able to do the lifesaving work we do every day as we strive to end homelessness.”
The tournament included breakfast, driving range privileges, a putting green contest, 18-hole golf game, on-course food and drinks, cocktail hour, dinner and awards reception.
Sponsors of the tournament included Northern Trust, Shuster Financial Services, Stone Tapert, Vimvi, California Institute of Advanced Management, Mission Valley Bank, Lenox Advisors, Insperity, Arroyo Insurance Services, Thrivent, Dave Knight Real Estate Team, The CREM Group, and Lenox Advisors.
Partnership companies that supported on-course food and beverages included Stone Brewery Pasadena, Cigars by Chivas, Chick-fil-A Pasadena, Custom Comfort Mattress and Bertha Mae’s Brownie Company.
“Lagerlof Cares believes that, as a prominent leader within their community, they have the responsibility to give back to their neighbors beyond the boundaries of their standard business practices,” a press release noted. “With this in mind, they are committed to helping build a stronger, and more connected, community by investing in local nonprofit programs.”
