Dennis 7 Dees Raises $88,000 for Charity in Golf Tournament

Dennis’ 7 Dees, of Portland, Oregon, held its 7th annual Charity Golf Tournament, benefiting Human Solutions, on September 15. The event benefits homeless children and their families.  Proceeds from this year’s event totaled more than $88,000 – bringing the seven-year total to an amazing $500,000.

The event started out as a small vendor and employee golf outing sponsored by Dennis’ 7 Dees Landscaping and Garden Centers, and over the past 7 years has evolved into a crucial fundraiser that benefits homeless children and their families in Multnomah County through Human Solutions’ programs and services.

“On behalf of all of us at Dennis’ 7 Dees, we are pleased to continue to help Human Solutions carry out their vital mission in the community of serving hundreds of homeless children and their families.  We are very grateful for our suppliers, clients, friends and employees who help make this event possible,” stated Dave Snodgrass, President of Dennis’ 7 Dees.

Andy Miller, Executive Director of Human Solutions noted that, “This family-owned local business gives real meaning to supporting their community. As a direct result of the generous efforts of Dennis’ 7 Dees, hundreds of Oregon’s kids and their families who may experience homelessness this year will be able to sleep safely and warmly inside while they take a first step to transition out of homelessness into stable housing.  The proceeds from this event allow us to provide emergency shelter for families with children who fall into homelessness in this very challenging housing economy.  It also enables us to support families experiencing homelessness back into stable housing with the resources and support they need to prevent the trauma of homelessness in their future.”
