September 11: Working Partnerships’ annual golf event will benefit union members in need
From the Minneapolis Labor Review, July 28, 2017
MINNEAPOLIS — Register by Thursday, August 31 for the fifth annual golf tournament fundraiser benefiting Working Partnerships. The golf tournament is set for Monday, September 11 at Hillcrest Golf Club, 2200 Larpenteur Ave. E., Saint Paul. Shotgun start is at 9:00 a.m.
Working Partnerships is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created by the Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation to help union members and their families during seasonal unemployment, layoffs, lockouts, and other emergencies.
The program helps union members avoid a utility shut-off, eviction, or foreclosure and provides temporary food assistance.
The golf tournament is Working Partnerships’ biggest fundraiser, even more important this year because of cuts in United Way funding.
To support the event, sign up as a sponsor or golfer or donate prizes for the raffle or silent auction.
All donations to Working Partnerships for the tournament are tax deductible.
