Five nonprofit organizations will receive a share of donations raised through the 2022 NWIBRT Hard Hat Charity Golf Outing.

This year’s golf outing is Sept. 16 at White Hawk Country Club in Crown Point.

“These five nonprofits were selected by our committee because of the tremendous impact they make here in our region,” said Tina Stevens, a representative of the Iron Workers Local #395 and co-chair of the 2022 NWIBRT Hard Hat Golf Committee. “Their work is very much in alignment with the philosophies of NWIBRT and each one of these organizations makes a real difference in the lives of Hoosiers throughout our area.”

The selected recipients include:

  • Challenger Learning Center of NWI
  • Goodwill Industries of Michiana
  • Kids’ Chance of Indiana
  • Tradewinds Services
  • Paladin Inc.

The 2021 golf outing raised $25,000 for five nonprofit organizations.  

Organizers said remaining proceeds from the event will be used to support safety and educational programming for Region businesses through NWIBRT’s collaborative initiatives.

The Northwest Indiana Business RoundTable is an independent, non-profit council of Region firms committed to the improvement of construction and maintenance projects in Northwest Indiana.
