San Antonio, Texas (October, 27 2023) – Sundt Construction hosted its 11th annual Central Texas Mike Gaines charity golf tournament, raising $40,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

“It was a beautiful day for a game of golf in honor of Mike Gaines,” said Senior Project Engineer Clinton Witherell. “Thank you to our sponsors and employee-owners for making this year’s event a huge success.”

Founded in 1950, MDA’s mission is to empower people living with neuromuscular diseases to live longer, more independent lives. Since 2001, Sundt has hosted a suite of sporting competitions in Arizona, California and Texas to raise money for ALS research in honor of Mike Gaines. Mike was a longtime Sundt employee-owner who lost his life to ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The events have raised over $2 million to date.
