As part of its commitment to “build community,” Plano-Coudon Construction hosted its 2nd Annual Golf Classic, raising $35,000 for Teach for America - Baltimore.

The Sept. 15 fundraiser at Hayfields Country Club attracted a sold-out crowd of 128 golfers as well as key sponsorship support from numerous area companies, including: K.C. Company – Pella Windows and Doors, HMS Insurance Associates, Zurich, PNC Financial Services Group, NetQuest, Asbestos Specialists Inc., Wells Fargo Advisors, and Emjay Engineering & Commercial Contractors.

“We are honored to do this to support an organization that places really savvy, highly educated, dynamic teachers in underprivileged areas and has tremendous impact on the lives of a lot of kids,” said Brett Plano, co-owner and founder. “We are also delighted that the Plano-Coudon Construction Golf Classic helps create awareness of Teach for America.”

Active in Baltimore public schools for the past 22 years, Teach For America recruits and develops a diverse corps of outstanding individuals from all academic disciplines to teach for a minimum of two years in high-needs schools and become lifelong leaders in the movement to end education inequality. Currently, nearly 300 Teach For America teachers are working in more than 100 Baltimore City and county schools, providing transformational education to more than 18,000 students.

“Our teachers are trained to serve children who are facing the challenges of poverty, and we see wonderful impacts from their efforts to make significant gains with each and every student every year,” said Tracie Lefevre, Managing Director of Development for Teach For America - Baltimore.

The Baltimore organization, Lefevre noted, relies on donations from corporations, foundations and individuals to meet 80 percent of its annual budget.

“So we are incredibly grateful for the partnership of Plano-Coudon Construction. We couldn’t do the work we do without this kind of support,” she said. “Not only do Plano-Coudon staff generously plan and execute a remarkable golf tournament that provides critical financial support and builds awareness for our work in Baltimore, but they invest personally in Teach for America by spending time volunteering in classrooms, inspiring our students as guest teachers, and working with our teachers to expand educational opportunities.”The golf outing and awards dinner, Plano said, gave Teach for America representatives an opportunity to discuss their work with “a diverse cross section of industry leaders in the Baltimore area".

Plano-Coudon Construction – a Baltimore City-based company with extensive experience in education construction – committed to providing significant, ongoing support to Teach For America a few years ago as part of its community service action plan. In addition to organizing the annual Golf Classic, the Baltimore City-based construction company gives employees one paid leave day annually to volunteer with a nonprofit of their choosing and a $100 donation for that charity.

“Many of our employees have been choosing to support Teach For America, and they support it in different ways,” Plano said.

In addition to spending time in the classroom, Plano-Coudon has donated construction services and materials to complete repairs at some area schools.
