Bob Whittaker Memorial Golf Outing donates $2,500 to United Services

United Services for Children thanks the organizers of the Bob Whittaker Memorial Golf Outing for generously donating $2,500 of the event’s proceeds to our agency. We will use the money to ensure children of all abilities reach their full potential through programs such as early intervention and pediatric therapy.

Robert “Bob” N. Whittaker, Sr., who passed away Jan. 3, 2016, founded Whittaker Homes in the 1970s. The company became one of the region’s most successful homebuilders. An avid golfer, Whittaker owned and operated several golf courses, including Whitmoor Country Club in St. Charles, where the memorial golf outing was held on Sep. 19 to honor Whittaker’s philanthropic spirit.
