LAKEVILLE, Minn. — The second annual Russ Schneiderman Memorial Golf Tournament raised more than $40,000 for Ronald McDonald House this June. This summer's tournament continued a long history of support from retailer Schneiderman's Furniture, which has raised more than $450,000 for the charity since its inception.

The June 27 event drew 144 golfers and was held at Oak Marsh Gold Course in Woodbury, Minn. Owner Larry Schneiderman commented that he appreciates the help and support of everyone who is involved with the fundraiser.
Schneiderman's Furniture has held a charity golf tournament benefiting the Ronald McDonald House annually since 1990. In 2012, the tournament was renamed to honor the man who started the long-standing tradition. Russ Schneiderman, brother of owner Larry Schneiderman, died in August 2011 after losing his battle with metastic melanoma.
Ronald McDonald House provides lodging for out-of-town families whose children are undergoing medical treatment.
