Pillars of Freedom Foundation held its second annual golf event Tuesday, September 11th, and Levinson and Stefani was proud to be a sponsor. The event, held at Boone Creek Golf Club in Bull Valley, Illinois, raised money for the foundation’s efforts.
Pillars of Freedom recognizes and supports veterans of the armed services and first responders by setting up flag displays, hosting “Welcome Home” events and memorial services, providing financial support to veterans, sponsoring Honor Flights, and various other services.
Golfers enjoyed perfect weather for the round, after which everyone was treated to dinner on the clubhouse patio. Raffle tickets were sold for chances to win numerous prizes, including autographed Chicago sports memorabilia, golf clubs, and other items.
“It’s a really great organization,” said managing partner, Jay Stefani, who represented the firm at the outing. “We love giving back to our communities, but Pillars of Freedom Foundation is a particularly worthy cause. Especially on September 11th, we want to show our respect and appreciation for our armed services and first responders.”
Prizes were given to the lowest scoring group, the longest drive, and closest to the pin. In addition to a hole-in-one contest, foursomes competed in a “yellow ball” game. Every team was provided one marked yellow golf ball. Each hole, one player had to use the yellow ball for each shot. The goal was to still have the yellow ball at the end of the round — not easy considering the abundance of water hazards and wooded fields on and along the course. (There may be truth to the rumor Jay lost his foursome’s yellow ball for the second consecutive year.)

The foundation is already planning its third annual golf event for next year, and hopes to keep increasing participation. Levinson and Stefani is certainly looking forward to continuing its support of this fine group, and Jay is always looking for golfers to join him on the course!
