Bob's Discount Furniture's Annual Golf Outing Raises Over $447,000

MANCHESTER, Conn.-Bob's Discount Furniture Charitable Foundation along with Planned Furniture Promotions announced that their 25th charity golf outing and dinner held earlier this month raised more than $447,000.

The funds raised during the event will benefit charities including the American Red Cross, Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, American Cancer Society's Camp Rising Sun, Family & Children's Aid, The Jimmy Fund and Connecticut Children's Medical Center.

"This event is about the children in the communities we serve, and it's a labor of love," said Bob Kaufman, co-founder of Bob's Discount Furniture. "We think it's wonderful that for 25 straight years our employees, vendors and executive team have enthusiastically supported our commitment to these invaluable non-profit organizations that help so many children in need."

This year's outing included a round of golf at the Tunxis Plantation Country Club in Farmington, Conn., followed by an evening event at the Farmington Club featuring dinner with silent and live auctions.

The charity golf outing started 25 years ago by Planned Furniture Promotions, a leading sales promotion company in the home furnishing industry. Bob's Discount Furniture became an event partner when Kaufman and Gene Rosenberg, who is also the founder of Planned Furniture Promotions, opened Bob's in 1991.
