HUBBELL EXTREME CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC PRESENTS CHECK TO ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION

WEST DES MOINES, IA (October 10, 2016) – Earlier today, Hubbell Realty Company presented the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association with a check for $16,000. The proceeds were the result of the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic held last month at the Copper Creek Golf Club in Pleasant Hill.

The 2016 Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic welcomed over 250 golfers and sponsors from dozens of local companies in support of three local charity organizations. The event offered the chance to not only golf and enjoy the 19-year-old golf course in Pleasant Hill which added The Bunker Sports Pub & Grill this spring, but more importantly, support and raise money for local organizations making significant impacts across Central Iowa.

“Groups like the Alzheimer’s Association provide invaluable support to our communities,” said Rick Tollakson, president and CEO of Hubbell Realty Company. “We, along with our incredible sponsors, value the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association and their work to improve our quality of life here in Central Iowa and it was our honor to support them with this year’s event.”


The local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association works to raise awareness of the disease at the local and state levels. Additionally, they provide vital services, education and support to people living with Alzheimer's as well as their family members and caregivers who are also affected by their loved ones diagnosis. The Greater Iowa Chapter provides these services in 85 Iowa and Illinois counties.

In addition to the funds raised, Hubbell employees also volunteer and support the organization and its mission. Steve Niebuhr, senior vice president, development and construction services, works annually to support the “Ride to Remember” fundraiser, and Richard Dedor, marketing manager, serves on the association’s marketing committee.

This year’s event raised 50 percent more than last year’s record donation, a testament to the giving spirit of local businesses and the importance of the work of the local non-profit groups.

“Every 66 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Support from companies like Hubbell is critical to helping us find a cure, treatment or slow the progression of this disease. Funds raised through the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic will be used for research, but also to support local families here in Iowa through support groups, education and family care consultations,” said Kay Rader, development director for the Alzheimer's Association Greater Iowa Chapter.

The chosen charities are asked to promote the charity golf outing within each of their individual networks of board members, donors and volunteers.
