Golf Outing Raises More Than $82,000 to Benefit Peoria Area Salvation Army

     Eighty-six golfers, thirty-three sponsors, sixteen donors & memorial sponsors all came together to raise $82,100 for The Salvation Army in Peoria.

Hawley Country Club, that raises funds to help those people in the community facing food insecurities, homelessness, or are at risk of homelessness.

“We are humbled by the continued support of the local community for those people less fortunate. The need is even greater this year given the issues many are facing due to the Covid pandemic.” He continued, “Every dollar really makes a difference. We’re proud to be able to contribute toward making a real impact in our town.” - Lynn Kunkle, Chairman of the Birdies for Good Golf Committee

Without amazing board direction from them & support from golfers/teams - this event would never be as successful as this. The Salvation Army of Peoria thanks everyone involved!
