The Center for Head Injury Services would like to invite you to our 14th Annual “Gray Matters” Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, October 6. Presented by Commercial Bank, the tournament will be held at the historic Glen Echo Country Club. Please join us on the fairways to support the Center and the people we serve.

The Center is a life line of hope to people with disabilities arising from brain injuries, autism and developmental disabilities. Proceeds from this year’s event will go toward funding the Center’s new headquarters and toward renovations of the new Destination Café and Wags in a Bag storefront in the City of St. Louis. Expansion of these social enterprises will allow us to train more people with disabilities for jobs in restaurants and bakeries in the community. Your support helps some of our area’s most vulnerable citizens.

  • Be a sponsor: Sponsorships from $150-$1,500 are available and are tax deductible. Check out the event flyer describing various sponsorship levels and their benefits.
  • Bring a foursome: Enjoy a fun day of golf that supports a worthy cause. Book your team now!
  • Donate: We are looking for in-kind items for golfer gifts, prizes, silent auction and goodie bags. We also need food and beverage donations. Destination packages or timeshares are needed.
  • Come for dinner and drinks: If you’re not a golfer, please join us after the golfing ends for cocktails, a buffet dinner and silent auctions (for the reasonable price of $50 per guest). If you are golfing in the tournament, invite your spouse or significant other to join us.

The Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible in accordance with the IRS regulations. If you have any questions, please contact Kyle Gunning at, or by calling (314) 983-9230 ext. 107.

The Center has tax credits for qualifying businesses and individuals interested in sponsorships.
These provide a credit towards your Missouri taxes worth 50% of the value of your donation.
