ALTON, Ill. (July 31, 2014) – The Simmons Employee Foundation is proud to announce the beneficiaries of its 10th annual golf tournament are the Edwardsville Neighbors in Need and Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Fund. The tournament, organized in a 4-person scramble format, will take place Friday, Aug. 8 at Sunset Hills Country Club in Edwardsville.

“Neighbors in Need and the Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation are both local charities that are helping people who live in our own towns,” Fair said. “I encourage everyone to come enjoy a round of golf this coming Friday and support these two very deserving organizations.”

Neighbors in Need, founded in 2009, helps ease the financial burdens of local families in crisis. The group hosts popular events in Edwardsville like the annual Taste of Edwardsville and Turkey Trot 5K and donates the proceeds. Families are identified through an application process and include people battling cancer, children living with disabilities, families displaced by emergencies like a fire and more, according to the organization’s website.

“Neighbors in Need is truly a grassroots effort to help people who live right here in our communities,” Fair said. “They hope to expand their reach and start helping residents of other local cities, and we hope the funds raised from the golf tournament will help them reach that goal.”
