On Sunday, September 29, Commonwealth Electric fielded two 4-person golf teams and sponsored a hole in the 12th annual Ferris Financial/Nebraska Cigar Society Golf Tournament benefiting the Friendship Home of Lincoln. The Friendship Home is a nonprofit organization serving victims of domestic abuse.
Often times, victims feel trapped in abusive relationships because they lack the money and resources to leave their abuser. Money raised by this tournament goes directly toward helping these victims. Currently there are more than 80 people, mostly
women and children, on the wait list to receive shelter services offered by the Friendship Home.
This year the tournament raised approximately $1,500 to support this charity. From the sponsors:
“Thank you so much for your support of this tournament and the reason we host it. Lincoln continues to be a great community because of the support given by private sector businesses.”
