“We always look forward to the annual golf classic as an opportunity to raise awareness and money in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters' mission within our community,” said Kevin Poettker, Vice President of Business Development and BBBSIL board member. “We are extremely appreciative of the continuous generosity and participation of our employees, clients, business partners, and friends.”
This year, Poettker surpassed its annual contribution goal and expanded the event by offering morning and afternoon golf sessions. Sixty golf teams participated, which helped Poettker exceed its goal of supporting the mentorship organization. Proceeds will support the BBBSIL mission of assisting children in recognizing their potential and building better futures. Since 1980, the organization has helped thousands of youth face adversity and develop mentorship in Clinton, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair counties.
“We are so grateful for all the effort that goes into Poettker’s annual golf classic,” said Heather Freed, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois. “Their tremendous contribution and planning initiative will allow us to match over 40 youth in our mentorship program so the children can grow and thrive.”
