East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) February 19, 2015
The Kelser Foundation set a new record for funds raised and total golfers in attendance at their annual golf Charity Challenge held in September at the Indian Hill Country Club. The 2014 Charity Challenge raised $24,100 for the American Lung Association of the Northeast which is the highest total in the 18 year history of the event. The Charity Challenge also set a record for player turnout with an oversold field of 152 golfers.
“It’s incredible that we are able to keep growing such a great event for an even greater cause,” said Lisa Carroll, Kelser Foundation Coordinator and Kelser Corporation Marketing Manager. “The Charity Challenge has always been our annual flagship event and we’re thrilled that so many of our employees, friends, partners and customers are able to participate at this level.”
The event has raised more than $224,713 total to date and typically showcases a sold out field. Prizes are awarded for longest drive men and women, closest to pin, closest to the line and for the top three teams based on lowest total score. Golfers, volunteers, and sponsors are treated to a dinner reception and award ceremony that features prize raffles as well as a silent auction.
