DALLAS, TX —(October 29, 2014)—Mohr Partners, Inc. recently sponsored and hosted a golf tournament with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Jonathan’s Place. The event raised more than $30,000 to help the abused and neglected children of North Texas.
The Mohr Partners Golf Classic was held at the Topgolf Dallas location on October 9. The Las Vegas-themed event featured a live DJ, competitive games, food, prizes and a silent auction. Teams of six players competed in the tournament while enjoying complimentary beer and wine. Each dollar given to the Mohr Partners Golf Classic went directly to Jonathan’s Place, the first licensed foster group home in Texas for drug-addicted babies and small children.
Jonathan’s Place provides emergency residential care services to abused, abandoned and neglected children, foster care and adoption. Their facility was created and is operated by the Kid Net Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1991 by Dallas resident Lisa Matthews and Phil Matteis to provide specialized services and housing to at-risk children in Dallas County and throughout the state.
“We count on the generosity of thousands of donors every year to care for the abused and neglected children from 21 Texas counties,” said Allicia Frye, Chief Executive Officer of Jonathan’s Place. “This was a very successful and fun event, and we are thankful to be able to team with Mohr Partners.”
“It was a really fun event, and I think hosting it at Topgolf this year made it even more unique,” said Jennifer Norris, Managing Principal of Mohr Partners and a Jonathan’s Place Board Member. “We look forward to this tournament every year. Many of our associates were able to attend and even compete in the tournament. The children at Jonathan’s Place are very special to us and we love being able to help them in any way we can.”
In addition to the title sponsorship of this event, Mohr Partners has sponsored Jonathan’s Place for over eight years, committing resources by allowing its associates time off to visit the cottage and planning fun activities throughout the year for the children. Additionally, Mohr sponsors Easter and Christmas parties annually where Mohr associates contribute items for the event such as Easter baskets, candy, toys, clothing and other items to ensure the children receive gifts and are not forgotten at these special times of the year.
Several times a year Mohr associates visit the cottages for fun events, donating supplies necessary for maintaining the homes. Throughout the year, Mohr associates sponsor fundraisers to raise money for which Mohr Partners, as a company, matches all donations.
