Operating Engineers Local 150 Raises $500,000 for Military Families

In August, International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney presented a check for $500,000 to the Navy SEAL Family Foundationat Local 150’s charity golf fundraiser, the James M. Sweeney Classic. The event drew more than 500 golfers to four golf courses in Lemont, and the check was presented to retired SEAL Captain Mike Argo, who serves on the SEAL Family Foundation’s Board of Directors.

“The union construction industry is proud to support military families,” said Sweeney. “Veterans make up a large portion of our workforce, and we welcome returning veterans to our industry with open arms. These men and women have done so much for us, and we are honored to come together to support their families.” The event brought together a cross section of workers, business leaders, elected officials and military families.
