Members from Sprinkler Fitters Union Local 268, the St. Louis Metro Area Chapter of NFSA and the St. Louis Fire Sprinkler Alliance sponsored the Burn Aid Golf Tournament on Thursday June 13, 2019. The Burn Aid Golf Tournament was held at Emerald Greens Golf Course years ago. This year’s tournament was held at the Landings at Spirit Golf Club in Chesterfield, MO.
The profits from this tournament go to the St, Louis Burns Recovered Support Group’s Children’s Burn Camp. Mark Esker, Peer Support & Education Director for BRSG, was on hand to welcome the golfers. Mark suffered burns to 70% of his body when he was 18 years old. He credits Fire Sprinklers for saving his life.
Approximately 110 golfers were on hand for this tournament. Also on hand were Fire Department Officials who were guests of the organizations. The weather was perfect on Thursday at the course.
