Schneiderman’s Raises $94,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities at Annual Golf Tournament
First held in 1990, five years after Russ and Monica Schneiderman’s energetic and bright son Joey passed away from leukemia, the tournament was established as a way for them to thank the Ronald McDonald House for providing their family a home away from home during Joey’s two-year battle. Since its inception, the tournament has donated $840,000 to RMHC-UM and an additional $90,000 to other charitable organizations.
When Russ Schneiderman passed away in 2011, his wife Monica and brother Larry changed the event’s name to the Russ Schneiderman Memorial Golf Tournament.
“Russ’s big heart and connections in the industry resulted in an annual event that was not only fun, but reflected his giving spirit,” said Jason Schneiderman, president of Schneiderman’s Furniture.
In tribute to Larry Schneiderman, the 2018 tournament’s charitable focus expanded to include additional charities such as the University of Minnesota Parkinson’s Research Fund for the care and cure of Parkinson’s Disease.
According to Jill Evenocheck, RMHC-UM president and CEO, “The impact the Schneiderman family has had on our organization is truly remarkable. The support from Schneiderman’s Furniture, their vendors, customers, and the golfers moves our mission forward allowing 6,600 families annually to be close to their child during a medical crisis — an outstanding legacy of love and community”.
