In this Midwestern City, there is no question that Rockford and surrounding areas boast a deep passion for the game of golf. This region alone possesses over 15 public and private golf courses. Due to the high interest of this sport, Rockford United Labor has been able to build a tradition of giving back to the community. For over 23years, Rockford United Labor has supported United Way of Rock River Valley’s community impact by raising additional money by doing what many of its members enjoy, playing golf.  The success of this annual event, held on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017, has raised over $300,000 in fundraising dollars over the years. These outings, along with many others hosted by labor organizations, benefits United Way and have a positive impact on the children and parents in our community.
