Hubbell Realty Company is proud to announce $25,000 has been donated to the Polk County Housing Trust Fund through the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic, presented by Plumb Supply Company and Kohler, held on September 5.
The money donated to Polk County Housing Trust Fund will be used toward their ‘Stable, Steady Strong’ campaign which aims to provide critical programs and services for residents to connect with greater resources leading to securing and maintaining housing choices that are safe, stable and affordable.
“The Polk County Housing Trust Fund is honored to be chosen by Hubbell Realty to receive proceeds from the 2019 Extreme Golf Tournament. Those dollars will impact the lives of thousands of vulnerable families by providing resources that will lead them to safe, stable and affordable long-term housing, improving their quality of life and economic vitality of the community,” said Eric Burmeister, Executive Director for Polk County Housing Trust Fund.
The Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic has been held in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. This day-long event features two flights of golf at Copper Creek Golf Course, raffle and door prizes as well as hole prizes along the course. This year, Hubbell had more than 270 participants golf in the event.
The golf classic is held on the years when Hubbell is not participating in a Hubbell Extreme Build. In 2017, Hubbell tore down and rebuilt the Ronald McDonald House in 11 days, creating fifty percent more space for families using the NICU, PICU and Blank Children’s Hospital at UnityPoint Health in downtown Des Moines. Other extreme builds included: Cabins for Campers with Easter Seals in 2013; 9 Homes in 9 Days for 9 Families with Anawim Housing in 2009 and the original build in 2006 with ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
