The results are in and the recently held 5th Annual Epstein Community Foundation (ECF) Golf Outing was a huge success. We are happy to announce that the ECF, the charitable arm of Epstein, raised over $34,000 this year, a 25%+ increase over 2016! These funds are going to allow the ECF to spread a lot of good in our community. Specifically, the money raised from this year’s outing will be going to three amazing nonprofit organizations; Rebuilding Together, ACE Mentor Program Chicago, and Designs4Dignity. The ECF also plans to award $10,000 in grants to an additional charitable organization in need of funding this fall.
The ECF’s achievement this year is due in large part to the support from the ‘Platinum’ sponsors of the Golf Outing, a group that includes, besides Epstein; Titan Electric, F.H. Paschen, IES, Miller Cooper & Co., Maron Electric Company, The Private Bank, Anning-Johnson Company, Stellar, McAninch, State Mechanical Services, and the Foley Company. Thank you all very much!
Lastly, a special thank you goes out to the ECF’s golf outing committee members who worked very hard to make sure the outing was fantastic; Monika Ciesielska (who also took all the great photos you see here), Cassiday Love, Ramona Valeanu, Rita Kulaga, Christina Kapetan, Jenn Pisano, Jake Effinger, Ryan Lezcano, Debbie Sretenovic, Criss Paccione-Anderson and Laura Rebbe.
