St. Louis, Missouri (September 23, 2013) – Cornerstone Mortgage, Inc., a privately-held St. Louis based mortgage-banking company, is extremely proud to announce they donated $21,750 to the Nurses for Newborns Foundation this year!
Each year Cornerstone holds a charity golf tournament to benefit Nurses for Newborns. For the past 8 years, Cornerstone has been privileged to be part of this great cause. The Nurses for Newborns Foundation is dedicated to promoting the health, safety, and well-being of newborn babies. They provide mentoring services, guidance for new parents, in-home nursing visits and much more.
Cornerstone would like to thank Vice President, Brad Bradford, and Product Development Manager, Cookie Hines, for organizing the charity golf event each year.

Many families and newborns are in need of medical care, education and assistance. We know the money donated will change people’s lives,” stated Cookie Hines, when asked about this year’s success.
