The 22nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament was at the Shadow Glen Golf Club in Olathe, Kansas. All proceeds from the event go directly to Children’s Mercy. “Each year this tournament combines two things we hold dear – spending time with our clients and colleagues in the business community, and, most importantly, continuing the giving that supports the Children’s Mercy Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine’s expansion of its focus on oncology,” said Steve Edwards, Chairman and CEO of Black & Veatch. “This year’s event is another opportunity to join with our many sponsors and supporters in helping Children’s Mercy maintain its position as a premier hospital for pediatric medicine.” Past fundraising from the tournament has also supported the construction and renovations for Children’s Mercy East in Eastern Jackson County and Children’s Mercy Broadway. Support has also been provided to the CARE Clinic, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment, robotic surgery, neonatal intensive care nursery, emergency department and urgent care centers. Editor’s Notes: The Black & Veatch Foundation serves as the platform for participation by the company and its professionals in supporting a variety of philanthropic organizations and programs worldwide.
