The McKee Golf Classic: Its History and Our Mission
September 20, 2022
Always a family-owned-and-operated company, McKee Builders has been building homes in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland for three generations. The McKee family is proud of our reputation for customization, quality, and customer service. But we don’t stop there!
The McKee family also believes in giving back to the community. In recent years, the company’s commitment has included donations of time and dollars and the development of special fundraising events. One such event is the annual Frank A. McKee Charity Golf Classic, named in honor of the company’s founder. The golf tournament benefits different charitable organizations each year, ranging from military veterans to animal rescues.
The most recent charities for the event include Home of the Sparrow (2020 & 2021), Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (2019), Tails of Valor (2018), and Project Healing Waters (2017). For 2022, the charity was the Ronald McDonald House; the event raised over $110,000.
“It is important to us at The McKee Group that we give back to our community, so we are appreciative that the annual golf event is so successful,” said McKee Builders Vice President, Frank J. McKee, Jr. “We are incredibly grateful for all of the donors and volunteers who support or participate in the events. We would not be able to help these organizations if we didn’t have so much support.”
While we are building homes for people, the McKee team always remembers that there are those who don’t have the comforts we sometimes take for granted. Three generations of the McKee family have guided the mission at McKee Builders and one thing never changes our commitment to making a difference in people’s lives.
“It’s important to give back to the community that gives us so much,” says McKee’s President, Frank J. McKee, Sr. “We eagerly raise money every year and decide where we want to send it. We try to spread it around to each of our charities.” Each member of the McKee family serves on the boards of different local charities, including the organizations that benefit from the golf outing.
