Simmons Employee Foundation Golf Tournament Supports Young Burn Survivors

8th Annual Golf Tournament to Benefit Burns Recovered Support Group

Edwardsville, Ill. – The Simmons Employee Foundation has selected the Burns Recovered Support Group, Inc., to benefit from the 8th Annual Simmons Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which will take place June 29 at Sunset Hills Country Club in Edwardsville.

Founded by burn survivors and the burn care team at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, the Burns Recovered Support Group is a St. Louis based nonprofit organization whose mission is to assist burn survivors in their recovery, support medical facilities in the care of burns in Missouri and educate the public in burn awareness and prevention.

Marty Mengarelli, SEF Director and Simmons firm attorney, said the foundation selected the charity because of its summer Burn Camps for children and teenaged burn survivors. The charity sponsors any child who wants to attend so there is no admission charge.

“What Burns Recovered Support Group is doing with its Burn Camp is a unique opportunity for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns,” he said. “The Simmons Employee Foundation wanted to help them ensure that funds would be available to sponsor every child who wanted to attend.”

The tournament, organized in a 4-personal scramble format, will take place Friday, June 29. Tee times are 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Cash prizes will also be awarded to first and second place teams in each flight.

Registration costs $100 per player or $400 per four-person team. Entry fees include green fees, cart rental, lunch or dinner, soda or beer on the course and a complimentary gift. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will benefit the Burns Recovered Support Group. Last year’s event raised a total of $25,000.
