Russell’s 32nd Annual Charity Golf Outing

Russell’s 32nd Annual Charity golf Outing

Each year, for over 30 years now, Russell has been hosting an annual charity golf outing to raise funds for a worthy organization within our community. This event has grown in size as well as donation amount since its origination.

This year brought many unknowns, but we were able to safely host Russell’s 32nd Annual Charity Golf Outing on Monday, September 28th. Despite a few showers the night before and a blustery 60 degree day, we were able to enjoy a day of golf and good company. Through the generosity of the golfers, sponsors, volunteers and donations, Russell was able to donate a total of $40,000 to this year’s charity, The Brayden Buntemeyer Fund.

The Brayden Buntemeyer Fund supports families facing infant loss at Genesis Medical Center, Davenport. Funds are used to provide emotional support to families, create special memories families will cherish forever, and ensure compassionate and loving care for the infants and families we serve.

Genesis Foundation and No Foot Too Small are partnering to build at Genesis Medical Center, Davenport, the nation’s third No Foot Too Small Birthing + Bereavement Suite. The No Foot Too Small Birthing + Bereavement Suite is designed to serve and comfort families experiencing miscarriage, stillbirth, fetal and infant loss. The suite will include a labor and delivery room and a waiting area for family and friends, including a kitchenette and a spa-like bathroom. This will be a private and comfortable suite where babies will be welcomed into the world and loved, and then families can say goodbye.

This initiative is led by Jess & Jenny Buntemeyer, Dr. Lyndsey & Kyle Day, and Dana & Dr. Mark Wilkinson.

“This space will be a sacred space to say hello and goodbye to a child. It will be a place to cry, laugh, and make memories, no matter how brief, for parents and family members to carry with them.”  – Dana Wilkinson
