HUBBELL REALTY COMPANY AWARDS $15,000 TO LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS
West Des Moines, IA (October 27, 2014) – Hubbell Realty Company awarded $15,000 to Des Moines area nonprofit organizations last week on behalf of the sponsors and participants in the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic. Operation First Response, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa, Inc. and Best Buddies Iowa each received $5,000 in support of their missions.
“Best Buddies has recently begun to implement our program to help kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) in middle schools,” said Jesse Bunney, Best Buddies Iowa Chairman of the Board and CBRE|Hubbell Commercial sales associate. “With the support we received from Hubbell Realty Company, we will be able to sustain the growth we have already accomplished and ensure that schools will be fully funded in the future.”
The Hubbell Realty Company Extreme Charity Golf Classic is held annually to support three local organizations that make central Iowa a better place. This year’s golf tournament took place on September 11 at Copper Creek Golf Course in Pleasant Hill.
“The donation from Hubbell will be used to pay heating bills this winter for our wounded heroes,” said P.J. Sesker-Green, Operation First Response Chairman of the Board. “Many families face the decision of paying the heat bill or purchasing food, so this donation will eliminate that burden.”
“The Ronald McDonald House helps families stay together during the crisis of childhood illness or injury by providing a place to stay, that is close to their child, with all the comforts of home,” said Jack Reed, development director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Iowa. “We are grateful for Hubbell's support and are honored to have been chosen as a recipient.”
