West Des Moines, IA (October 1, 2018) – Hubbell Realty Company is proud to announce a record-breaking total of $49,500 has been raised for three local charities through the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic, presented by HomeServices Lending and Iowa Title Company, held on August 30. The three charities, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Children’s Cancer Connection and Easter Seals of Iowa will split the money evenly for a total of $16,500 for each charity.
“Hubbell Realty Company cultivates a culture of philanthropy and Easter Seals Iowa is truly grateful for their ongoing leadership in our community. Their support allows our organization to serve children and adults with disabilities, providing clients in our Iowa communities with independence, dignity and hope,” said Sherri Nielsen, President and CEO of Easter Seals Iowa.
“This support will allow us serve not only the current matches, but, over 150 young people on the waiting list; eager to be matched with a positive role model and mentor. We can’t do it without support from such good corporate citizens like Hubbell Realty,” said Renee Hardman, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa.
The Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic has been held in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018. This day-long event features two flights of golf at Copper Creek Golf Course, raffle and door prizes as well as hole prizes along the course. This year, Hubbell had more than 250 participants golfing.
“Children’s Cancer Connection would like to extend a big thank you to Hubbell Realty, all the players, and community sponsors for making the Hubbell Extreme Charity Golf Classic so successful. We are continually amazed and thankful to have a community who so strongly supports families facing childhood cancer. This was a great event, and we had a lot of fun being a part of it!” said Mark Slocum, Executive Director of Children’s Cancer Connection.
The golf classic is held on the years when Hubbell is not participating in a Hubbell Extreme Build. In 2017, Hubbell tore down and rebuilt the Ronald McDonald House in just 11 days, creating fifty percent more space for families using the NICU, PICU and Blank Children’s Hospital at UnityPoint Health in downtown Des Moines. Other extreme builds included: Cabins for Campers with Easter Seals in 2013; 9 Homes in 9 Days for 9 Families with Anawim Housing in 2009 and the original build in 2006 with ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
