Iowa recycler raises donations for children

City Carton Recycling/Ockenfels Family Foundation has raised $104,763 to date from their 16th Annual Charity Golf Outing.

The outing benefits the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) children’s programs, including their scholarship fund. Outing proceeds also are donated to “Children’s Cancer Connection”, a non-profit organization providing support services and programs for children with cancer and their families. One hundred percent of the Outing’s proceeds are donated thanks to the Ockenfels Family Foundation, who pays all outing expenses.

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 teed off at the outing. Over 45 more friends, family, and City Carton Recycling Team Members assisted with the event.

Over 40 City Carton Recycling friends, family and team members volunteered to assist with the 16th Annual Charity Golf Outing.

Money is raised for the Outing 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 include Core Vens Insurance, Hills Bank & Trust, International Paper, IPS Balers, Kathy & Andy Ockenfels, L & P Wire Tie Systems, Machinex, Paradigm Benefits, Point Builders LLC, Pralumex, Quincy Recycle Paper Inc., Redhawk Transportation, Truck Country, Vecoplan, and Waste Management - Recycle America.

Over $764,000 has been raised and donated to the American Cancer Society and children’s cancer programs since the start of the Charity Golf Outing 16 years ago.
