POETTKER CONSTRUCTION’S GOLF CLASSIC GOES VIRTUAL
We hope you and your team are safe and navigating these times. There is no doubt our communities are hurting right now.
This July, we would have hosted another Poettker Golf Classic. However, due to the safety guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and State of Illinois, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s tournament.
Unfortunately, our charity beneficiary, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois is not immune to the pressure this crisis has put on our economy.
Like Big Brothers Big Sisters, at Poettker, our work is built on the quality of our relationships, which is why we are hoping we can count on you to make sure the children of southwestern Illinois do not get left behind.
In lieu of a golf tournament, we are asking that you consider making a special gift to go directly to one-to-one mentoring of at-risk children in our area.
We understand that these times are challenging and everyone’s circumstance is different. At the same time, we also know that you may be looking for meaningful ways to help our community bounce back and protect the most vulnerable among us.
When the construction community comes together, there is nothing we can’t do. We sincerely hope you join us in rallying our community to help rebuild the only thing that really matters, each other.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
Kevin Poettker – Director of Business Development
