Pushing Hope Tournament 2022


Ceres would like to sincerely thank all the people who took time out to help support this year’s fundraising event.  Volunteers, sponsors (hole, lunch, mulligan, prize raffles) and a special thanks to our Platinum Donors, H & B Specialties, Consolidated Grain & Barge, Robert B. Miller & Associates, Inc, and Borghese Lane. We would also like to thank Calumet River Fleeting and Chicago Dry Dock, Midwest Tankermen, Inc, Kindra Lake Towing, LP, Northern Illinois Steel Supply Co and Middle River Marine for sponsoring the seafood boil afterwards. 

This year’s event took on a new look and location for the Pushing Hope Tournament. The event was moved to Illinois and took place at Spencer T Olin Golf Course at Gordon F. Moore Park in Alton Illinois. The day started out with a morning and afternoon golf rounds, and softball was replaced with a corn hole/bags tournament with 30 teams competing Friday night after the seafood boil.

Ceres was pleased to present a check in the amount of 173K to Mary Crowley Cancer Research. The final donation was just over $183,000.  This total exceeded last year’s amount of $150,000. Planning for next year’s event has begun so save the date for 08/18/23, thanks again and see you next year.
