Moody Insurance today presented an $83,000 check from its 7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and Raffle to Judi’s House, a grief support center for children and families in the Denver area. The donation was presented at a sponsors luncheon at the organization’s 1741 Gaylord Street center. This year’s donation is up 26 percent from the $61,697 raised in 2013 at the tournament, and surpassed Moody Insurance’s own 2014 fundraising goal of $80,000.
“Judi’s House has been improving lives in our community since 2002,” said Moody Insurance Chief Operating Officer Troy Moody. “We hope that this donation helps the organization continue to grow and lend crucial services to families stricken by grief. Thank you to our sponsors, supporters, and golfers for joining us in donating time and resources in support of this great cause.”
At the tournament on July 23, Judi’s House founder, former Denver Broncos quarterback Brian Griese, welcomed the crowd of 224 golfers to the sold-out event, held at Evergreen’s Hiwan Country Club. All donations from supporters, sponsors, and golfers will go towards supporting Judi’s House grief-related school-based programs, and helping to fulfill the organization’s vision that no child has to be alone in grief.
Griese founded Judi’s House in 2002 in honor and in memory of his mother, who died when he was 12 years old, with the mission to help children and families grieving a death find connection and healing. Judi’s House and Moody Insurance have partnered for the past three years, together raising over $129,000 to support grieving children and families in the Denver area. With the $83,000 raised this year, the total is now up to $187,000.
