Sleep Train, a sleep shop chain based in Sacramento, Calif., raised $500,000 at its recent Sleep Train Charity Golf Classic. The money will benefit foster youths who are aging out of the foster care system to further their education and live independently. In the past five years, the tournament has raised $1.5 million for foster youth programs. More than 400 people—including representatives of presenting sponsor Simmons, as well as Sealy, Serta, Tempur-Pedic, Leggett & Platt and Latex International—participated in this year’s event. The golf tournament and live-auction dinner were held at the Lincoln Hills Golf Club in Lincoln, Calif., in October.
