Children’s charities benefit from 29th annual Tom Lange Classic

June 26, 2019

rock-and-kidsThe Tom Lange Family of Companies’ Charitable Foundation hosted its 29th annual Charity Classic golf outing June 7-8 in Chicago. As has been the tradition since its inception, the annual golf outing is held in a different location each year and benefits children’s organizations in the surrounding area. This year, the Charity Classic was held June 8 at the Harborside International Golf Center. The company held a special event the prior day at Wrigley Field, where the Chicago Cubs took on the St. Louis Cardinals.

The TLC Foundation’s mission is to reach further into the communities in which we live and work across the United States and Canada, and make a positive impact on children in these communities. Proceeds from this year’s outing will be donated to Chicago-area children’s organizations Thumbuddy Special and Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.
