Carton raises funds for Cancer Society
City Carton Recycling/Ockenfels Family Foundation
held their annual golf outing that benefits the American Cancer
Society’s (ACS) children’s programs, including their scholarship
Outing proceeds 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 40 more friends, family, and City Carton
Recycling team members assisted with the event.
