      Thanks to Governor Stumpy’s and all of our friends and sponsors that helped support our 8th Annual Golf Tournament held at the Deuce on June 21st.  152 golfers attended, which is more than what is typically considered a full tournament, and some teams had to be turned away. We rely on a successful golf tournament to be one of our three major fund raisers each year. This year was another big success as we raised over $25,000 to assist working people in our community.

      Next year’s tournament is scheduled for June 20th at the Deuce once again. We anticipate another sell-out, so be sure to register early if interested in entering a team.

      First Place: Teamsters Local #41

      At the June Labor Council meeting Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa presented a $30,000 check to Working Families' Friend.  This is the ninth year Working Families' Friend has applied for and received this grant.  Argosy is the largest corporate donor to Working Families' Friend and we are so grateful for the great relationship we have.  Aaron Rosenthal, Argosy’s General Manager serves on Working Families' Friend’s Board of Directors.  The grant is used to extend the maximum amount of financial assistance that can be provided to individuals in need.

      Working Families’ Friend, and those we serve, say THANK YOU!

      We want to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of our 2016 Texas Holdem sponsors and players.  One of our three annual major fundraising events, this year’s tournament proved to be our most successful yet. Raising more than any previous Texas Holdem event, over $21,000 was raised to help support the mission of Working Families’ Friend. We had over 30 sponsors, and more than 200 players in attendance for this fun evening. The food, enjoyed by all, was donated and prepared by the Firefighters Local #42 Retirees.

      Our 2016 First Place Winner was David Kilgore with the Painters Local #2012. He attributed his success to “Beginners Luck”!

      Kent Fouquet, a retiree of IBEW Local #124, won the raffle ticket drawing for a seat at the final table. All 9 players at the final table received a prize.

      The great support, fun and competition shared, and enthusiasm for the evening has sparked the idea of a second tournament to be held in the Fall. Plans for this are being explored and will be announced as they are finalized.  There are more images from this event in the Photo Gallery.
