Focal Pointe Charity Golf Tournament.
On May 29, 2009 the Focal Pointe family lost a dear friend and team leader, Cindy Amos, in a car accident on her way to work. Professionally, Cindy was an absolute All Star. Her humble, grateful philosophy and strong work ethic embodied the ideals of Focal Pointe. By example, Cindy quietly helped build a culture of service throughout the organization and had a strong voice in our vision of being a company that gave back to the community.
“Thank you to everyone who supported the first annual Focal Pointe Charity Golf Tournament. Your donations and support not only provided funds for college but also lifted my spirits knowing that mom was so respected and loved.”
“We cannot begin to put into words the appreciation felt for the kindness, generosity, and donation received through the Focal Pointe golf tournament. The donated funds kept us financially stable during Quintin’s 7-month stay at Cardinal Glennon Hospital and Ranken Jordan Rehabilitation Center. Focal Pointe not only helped us through our financial needs but opened our hearts to pay it forward and show others they are not alone; support and love comes from unexpected places…”
The Quintin Byrne Family
“We never asked for help but were so blessed that our community realized we were stressed to the limits and made the Focal Pointe Charity aware of Olivia and our family’s needs. The funds we received from the golf tournament allowed us to continue to fund the treatment that Olivia needed and prevent our family from drowning in medical bills. It also greatly lifted our spirits in a time of tremendous stress, change, and exhaustion. Words cannot even express the feeling of the ‘weight being removed from our shoulders’ when we received the generous donations…”
The Olivia Uptergrove Family
“Through the generosity of Focal Pointe and all of the people and companies that made contributions, our family has been so greatly blessed. We are able to buy necessary equipment for communication and learning, pay medical bills, and pay for special therapies that our insurance doesn’t cover. Knowing that the funds are there for us to give our son what he needs to thrive and grow is such a relief to our family. Thank you!”

The firm also gives back through annual Earth Day programs with area elementary schools. Each year, the Focal Pointe team volunteers with local students, teaching them about plants, gardening, and ways to care for the earth. The students get hands-on experience with planting flowers, trimming shrubs, raking leaves, and more.
