The Salvation Army raised thousands of dollars at their annual golf outing in Crown Point. The funds will be used to help individuals and families in need in Lake County. Bob Migliorini, President and founder of American Precision Services of Gary received this year’s “Doing the Most Good Award.” Migliorini shared with the audience that his love for The Salvation Army began decades ago when he volunteered to ring the bell at a red kettle during the Christmas season. The event raised $58,000 for providing emergency food assistance, homelessness prevention services, after-school and music education programs for children and youth. The 2022 ‘Chip In’ Golf Outing brought together 113 golfers and additional attendees from Northwest Indiana and the Greater Chicago Area. The Salvation Army of Northwest Indiana serves Lake and Porter Counties from four Community Centers in Munster, East Chicago, Gary, and Valparaiso.

“We are so grateful to the men and women who have joined us today, the sponsors and auction donors who have given so generously to show their support for the hurting adults and children in Lake County communities,” said Captain Bersabe Vera, Commander of The Salvation Army of Northwest Indiana. “There are many parents who must often choose between paying rent and purchasing food and clothing for their children. The money raised from the golf outing will help many who have emergency needs,” Captain Vera said.
“Golfers from around the area love this event and return every year,” said Kevin Feldman, Director of Development for The Salvation Army of Northwest Indiana. “Golfers tell me it’s the most fun and that White Hawk Country Club is a favorite for golf.” The ‘Chip In’ Golf Outing featured 18 holes of golf appealing to all skill levels, followed by a dinner buffet, golfer awards, silent auction, and the presentation of the annual ‘Doing the Most Good Award.’ This award is presented to an exceptional person or company that is making positive differences in communities in Lake County.
