Press Release: Kelser and the American Lung Association Close out Record Breaking Charity Golf Tournament
The Kelser Foundation set a new fundraising record by raising $24,800 for the American Lung Association of the Northeast through the foundation’s 2015 Charity Challenge. The annual event was held at the Indian Hill Country Club in Newington, CT. The club graciously welcomed the entire Kelser family including employees, partners, customers and friends to what has become a much anticipated outing.
“Every year, I think it’s the best one yet,” said Kelser marketing manager Lisa Carroll, “However, I’m proud to say that our players and sponsors continue to come through making each year more successful than the last.”
Throughout the tournament’s 19 year history, the event has raised a total of $249,713 and typically realizes a sold out field. Prizes were awarded for long drive men and women, closest to pin, closest to the line and for the top three teams based on lowest total score. Golfers, volunteers, and sponsors were treated to a dinner reception and an award ceremony that featured raffle prizes and a silent auction.
The 20th Annual Kelser Charity Challenge will take place on September 20, 2016 once again at the Indian Hill Country Club in Newington, CT. Official registration hasn’t yet begun but those interested in participating, volunteering, or sponsoring the event may contact Lisa Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
