Eastern Swings into Action: Tee-rific Support at Ronald McDonald House Charity Golf Classic
July 27, 2023
Eastern's Dave Cooper volunteering at RMCH-CNI’s Annual Golf Classic.
Eastern, a company known for its brands Eastern Shipping Worldwide and Eastern Racing, proudly volunteered at the Annual Golf Classic of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana. The event, hosted at the picturesque Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont Avenue, aimed to raise funds for the charity's noble causes. For over four decades, the charity has provided unwavering support and a caring environment for families with hospitalized children, allowing them to remain close to their young ones during challenging times.
On June 19th, a truly idyllic sunny day that created a peaceful and delightful atmosphere, Eastern's representatives, Dave Cooper and Kate Burt, wholeheartedly assumed the roles of "Food and Drink Runners" with enthusiasm. Their primary responsibility was to ensure that all participants in the golf tournament stayed hydrated and enjoyed delectable snacks and goodies throughout the various three courses of 18 holes. The atmosphere buzzed with excitement as golfers and supporters gathered, knowing that their efforts would contribute to the charity's vital mission. With prizes, a silent auction, and the camaraderie of the participants, the day proved to be an immense success, raising over $600,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities®.
Eastern's active participation in the Golf Classic stands as a testament to their deep admiration for the impactful work carried out by the Ronald McDonald House Charities® in the community. By volunteering at this event, Eastern exemplified their unwavering commitment to supporting families in need and contributing to the well-being of children receiving medical care in the Chicago area.
