City Carton Recycling holds annual charity golf outing
The City Carton Recycling annual golf outing benefits
the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) children’s programs
through the “Debbie Ockenfels – Kids Rock!” Foundation.
Portions of the proceeds are donated to “The Heart Connection”
– a camp for kids with cancer and their siblings and
the ACS’s Scholarship Program. All expenses are paid
by the Ockenfels Family Foundation. The outing is held
in memory of Deborah Ockenfels, daughter of City Carton
Recycling founders Mort and Marcy. Deborah died of cancer
at the age of 17.
Over 160 golfers, from across the United States and Canada
participated. Over 40 more friends, family, and City
Carton Recycling team members assisted with the event
at the Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville, Iowa.
Money is raised in a variety of ways. A large portion
is pledged in activity and hole sponsorships prior to
the Outing. “Premier” sponsors joining City Carton Recycling
and the Ockenfels Family Foundation in the event this
year included Trex, Pralumex, L & P Wire Tie Systems,
Waste Management – Recycle America, Core Vens Insurance,
Hills Bank & Trust, Point Builders LLC, Machinex,
Kathy and Andy Ockenfels, IPS Balers, and Vecoplan.
Over $659,400 has been raised for the American Cancer
Society and children’s cancer programs since the start
of the Charity Golf Outing 15 years ago.
