Press Release: Kelser Aims for Another Hole In One in Support of Clean Air
East Hartford, CT – On Tuesday, September 18, 2012 Kelser Corporation will hold their annual charity golf tournament in support of the American Lung Association. Partners, vendors, friends and employees will gather at the Indian Hill Country Club in Newington, CT for a friendly golf competition all in the name of charity.
Hosting the “Kelser Charity Challenge” for the 19th time, Kelser continues its joint efforts with the American Lung Association to fight for clean air and better lungs. For over 30 years, the company has been an active member of the philanthropic community. Recently the Kelser Foundation was established to formally expand Kelser’s charity initiatives.
In creating their own charity challenge, Kelser is able to raise funds and gather donations that will benefit directly the ALA. In the spirit of the ALA, the annual challenge is also meant to inspire a healthy lifestyle starting with healthy lungs.
The golf tradition continues in 2012 with several competing teams who challenge the other participants as well as lung disease, asthma, COPD and secondhand smoke. Players will be rewarded with lunch, cocktails, and excellent company. In addition to the satisfaction of fighting for clean air, select winners will get prizes for the best scores, including closest to pin, longest drive, hole-in-one, and more.
The fun, games, and enjoyment serve as complimentary gifts to the support Kelser gives to the American Lung Association. This past year, Kelser raised $9,000 dollars from donations and fundraising efforts. The ALA mission is to improve lung health through education, advocacy, and research. With Kelser as their fellow supporter, the ALA is one step closer to getting a hole in one for better lungs.
The hard-earned $9,000 check will be presented to the president of the American Lung Association, Jeffrey Seyler at the end of the September event by Kelser President, Barry Kelly. The donations from the golf tournament are put towards research, funds and advocacy that help people suffering from lung difficulties fight for their air. The ALA says that “when you golf for the American Lung Association you are helping 35 million people living with lung disease” and this statistic alone is why Kelser continues to be an avid supporter.
Together, they make it possible for people to celebrate every breath, and the fight keeps on going. Join Kelser for another great charity event in September!
