City Carton Recycling raises over $120,000 for children
The City Carton Recycling/Ockenfels Family Foundation 19th Annual Charity Golf Outing raised over $120,093 for the American Cancer Society’s Scholarship Program and the “Children’s Cancer Connection,” a non-profit organization providing support services and programs for children with cancer and their families. The event was held recently near Iowa City, Iowa.
One hundred percent of the Outing’s proceeds are donated, thanks to the Ockenfels Family Foundation paying all outing expenses. The outing is held in memory of Deborah Ockenfels, daughter of City Carton Recycling founders Mort and Marcy. Deborah passed away from cancer at the age of 17 in 1972.
Over 180 golfers, from the U.S. and Canada teed off at the outing. Over 45 more friends, family, and City Carton Recycling Team Members assisted with the event held at Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville, Iowa.
