St. Louis, Mo., June 26, 2019 – S. M. Wilson’s Annual Swinging Fore Dreams Golf Tournament raised $36,000 for the Dream Factory of Saint Louis. More than 150 players participated in the 13th annual event at Glen Echo Country Club on May 13, 2019.

S. M. Wilson has been hosting the tournament for 13 consecutive years with all proceeds benefiting children with chronic illnesses and disorders and their families. The event was also supported by S. M. Wilson’s charitable giving program, #SMWill, which launched in August 2018 with the mission of “investing in the community through partnering with organizations focused on supporting the health and education of children.”

COO, Mark Cochran, has been an active part of the tournament since it’s beginning in 2007 and served as the emcee for the event. “A huge thank you to everyone who participated. We had 36 teams on the course this year and filled all of our sponsorships for the first time in the tournament’s history. Without you, we would not be able to provide dreams to the children in our community,” stated Cochran.

Over the years, S. M. Wilson has helped raise $401,000 for The Dream Factory of Saint Louis and granted the dreams of more than 70 children and their families.

The Dream Factory of Saint Louis was founded in 1983 — one of 36 non-profit Dream Factory chapters around the country. The Dream Factory is the only children’s wish-granting organization that does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness. The organization believes children with chronic illnesses and disorders also suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain. To learn more about the Saint Louis Dream Factory, visit
