CHARLOTTE – Twenty-six teams participated in Eastwood Homes’ 2nd Annual Charity Golf Outing on Oct. 13, raising more than $40,000 for Levine Children’s Hospital.
The Charlotte-based homebuilder’s outing was held at Raintree Country Club in south Charlotte.
“Thanks to our sponsors, we have been able to raise more than $100,000 for the Levine Children’s Hospital between last year’s event and our outing last week,” said Bryan DeGabrielle, Eastwood’s vice president of sales and marketing.”
Players enjoyed a catered lunch provided by Chick-Fil-A, and hole contests including a Hole-In-One Car Giveaway sponsored by Keffer Hyundai. Participants also received complimentary drinks and snacks, gift bags, award packages, and a buffet dinner catered by Best Impressions Catering and sponsored by Keller Williams Ballantyne. Sponsors included Builders FirstSource, Weyerhaeuser, Moen, Movement Mortgage, Stock Building Supply, and Certainteed.
“We had to reschedule this event due to rain, and we are fortunate that the weather held off for our outing on the 13th,” said Lisa Lenhart, marketing manager.
Eastwood Homes formed a philanthropic partnership with Carolinas HealthCare System and Levine Children’s Hospital in January 2008. The builder donates a portion of the proceeds on each sale to the hospital. Additionally, the company contributes gifts and goodies to patients and their families in the hospital through the use of the Eastwood Homes’ Hospitality Cart.
