The 2019 Inpro/Seal® Charity Golf Outing raised a record $24,900 for Aspire, a non-profit organization recognized throughout the Midwest as a leader in providing bold, pioneering and uncompromising services to children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Inpro/Seal customers, vendors and employees attended the Inpro/Seal Charity Golf Outing held Monday, August 12 at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Ill., to raise money for this deserving local cause.
The $24,900 donation was supported in part through a matching grant initiative by the philanthropic arm of Inpro/Seal’s parent company, Dover Corporation. The Dover Foundation helps to support not-for-profit organizations, causes and/or projects that benefit the local communities in which its operating companies are located. The Inpro/Seal family contributed to the cause through charitable giving, sponsorships and on-site events.
“This year’s Inpro/Seal Charity Golf Outing was a huge success, beating the previous record by almost $2,000 and raising over $7,000 more than last year.” said Chris Johnson, Inpro/Seal Vice President and General Manager. “We enjoy supporting Aspire, knowing the difference they make to those with developmental disabilities, their families, employers and their community.”
This is the eighth year Inpro/Seal has partnered with Aspire, raising more than $135,000 to support the non-profit’s enterprises, including Aspire Kids, Aspire Careers and Aspire Living.
“Our partnership with Dover and Inpro/Seal is incredibly meaningful to us and we’re exceedingly grateful to work with such a wonderful team,” said Jim Kales, CEO of Aspire. “They have become true advocates for Aspire’s message of inclusion and through this event, they have had a significant impact on the lives of the people we serve.”
