Ralph Kaufman Memorial Golf Tournament

The Ralph Kaufman Memorial Golf Tournament has been the organization’s main fundraiser for more than 20 years.  The support of our golfers, dinner auction, guests, and individual/corporate sponsors has helped us raise over a million dollars to support local veterans and children’s charities.

The tournament is a four-person scramble held annually in late summer.  The tournament begins with lunch followed by golf and concludes with a wine tasting, open bar and dinner auction.  Whitmoor Country Club has hosted the tournament for the past five years.


This year's event was October 6, 2020.


Trees For Vets

Annually Trees for Vets gives over 300 Christmas trees and stands, free of charge, to Veterans and their families to enjoy the Christmas Holiday Season. In addition, through sponsor's generous donations, The Kaufman Fund donates winter coats to Veterans helped by St. Patrick Center.  Since this program began we have partnered with several  businesses wanting to help fund and increase the Christmas holiday season for our veterans.  Over 1400 trees have been given to deserving families and we intend to continue this program. Any funds collected that exceed the tree expenses are donated to the local charities we support.


If you would like to be a sponsor or help this program, contact Irwin Loiterstein at irwin@thekaufmanfund.org

Trees For Vets was Dec 13, 2020.  A Recap of this Year's Event


Food for Vets

The Kaufman Fund is proud to announce the creation of our fifth program, "Food for Vets" to support Veterans in need in our community. The program kicked off with the first assistance event on March 20th, 2021 at the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry which is among the largest in the area. This event fed 60 Veteran families. Each of the Veterans who signed up was given approximately 10 days of food that will feed their household. Once the Veteran is in their system they will be able to get food on a monthly basis. The Kaufman Fund has plans to hold 4-6 events in 2021 including on May 15 at the Team Food Pantry in North County, July 17 at Jefferson Barracks and Thanksgiving time at the Lutheran Church in Olivette. These Food for Vets events that The Kaufman Fund along with our partners will reach over 400 families and provide much needed food assistance for many days worth of meals during the year.

Casino Night

For 5 years, The Kaufman Fund has hosted a Casino Night. The annual event is the Friday night before the Kentucky Derby and the theme is a "Kentucky Derby Pre-party". This event has been sold out for the last few years and features a Texas-Hold'em Poker Tournament within the Casino Night where the winner has the chance to win an opportunity to play in a national poker tournament in Las Vegas with a grand prize of $200,000.
