The Connor Classic
May 3, 2017
On Friday, April 28th our team headed out to The Legends Country Club to participate in the 1st Annual Connor Classic. As we set our GPS that morning, we hoped that the rain would soon die down…
It rained and stormed all day long, but that did not keep down the spirit of the cause!
The Connor Classic is a Charitable Golf Tournament benefiting Connor’s Cause. This non-profit organizations’ purpose is to help families with tragic diagnoses through local organizations near and dear to the family’s heart such as Ronald McDonald House Charities, Cure CMD, Missouri First Steps, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Connor Raymond Voigt is the little warrior behind the cause. Months before his birth, Connor’s family learned that he had severe hydrocephalus, to then be diagnosed at 3 months old with Walker-Warburg Syndrome. On December 11th, 2015 at 7 months old, Connor’s battle ended leaving a giant legacy behind of a little warrior.
The First Annual Connor Classic was held to not only remember his legacy, but also to celebrate his 2nd birthday. The family and friends of Connor gathered together and released balloons into the heavens to kick-start the tournament.
As a sponsor of the tournament, our tent ended up being a great spot for the golfers to take shelter from all the rain while enjoying some food, drinks, and golfing goodies!
23 City Blocks Catering could not be happier to have been a part of such a special and meaningful event. If the legacy of Connor has touched you the way it did us, we encourage you to check out the organizations’ website here.
