CHICAGO—Related Midwest and Lendlease, a leading international property and infrastructure group, hosted their 19th Annual Charity Golf Classic at Harborside International Golf Course on September 8. With more than 200 real estate and construction industry professionals in attendance and 54 participating foursomes, the event raised $405,000 for four Chicagoland charities: HIRE360, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, Saturday Place and Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA).
Over the past 19 years, the Related Midwest/Lendlease Annual Charity Golf Classic has come together to fundraise for charitable causes in the greater Chicago area. The event has consistently supported the work of HIRE360, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois and Saturday Place. Related Midwest and Lendlease were proud to also support a new organization this year, GLASA, which provides inclusive recreational fitness and competitive sports opportunities for youth, adults, and veterans with physical or visual disabilities.
“At Related Midwest, our strength is in community,” said Don Biernacki, Executive Vice President of Construction at Related Midwest “Real estate development and community impact go hand in hand, and I’m honored to join so many colleagues and friends as we support organizations that will help to improve the lives of residents and communities across Chicagoland.”
“We are extremely grateful to all the organizations that have continued to participate in our annual outing and their ongoing generosity to the various children charities throughout the Chicago area,” said Jeff Arfsten, COO of Lendlease. “The impact on the numerous children’s lives is unmeasurable.”
