City 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 fund.

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.

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