June 17, 2023

Summit Homes proudly joined forces with the Rob Ellerman Team at ReeceNichols for its 11th annual Raising Hope KC Charity Golf Tournament, resulting in a remarkable achievement. A staggering $185,505 was raised, setting a new record in support of four exceptional local organizations: Drumm Farm Center for Children, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Saint Luke's Foundation, and Wayside Waifs.

The golf tournament took place on Thursday, May 25, at the Drumm Farm Golf Club. Members of the real estate community, construction trade partners, influential community leaders, and friends came together to make this event a resounding success. 

Following a perfect day of golf, participants were treated to a raffle prize giveaway and celebrated the outstanding performances of the top-scoring teams.

By partnering with the Rob Ellerman Team and ReeceNichols, Summit Homes demonstrated its unwavering commitment to giving back to the community. This collaboration has undoubtedly made a significant impact on the lives of countless individuals served by the Drumm Farm Center for Children, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Saint Luke's Foundation, and Wayside Waifs. Together, creating a brighter future for the community, one stroke at a time.

“We’re proud to support so many organizations in Kansas City, and the golf tournament is a fun way to do that by bringing in our trade partners and friends. This event would not be successful without the on-going support of our valuable trade partners and suppliers. It is our privilege and responsibility to do our part in helping these organizations that are making a remarkable difference in our community and I'm proud that this event continues to grow,” said Zalman Kohen, CEO of Summit Homes.

Summit Homes is known for the generous support of charitable organizations throughout the metro. Their focus is on initiatives whose goals align with their own; empowering communities and helping children and those unable to help themselves.
