Aspire Receives a Large Donation from the Inpro/Seal Family
The 31st annual Inpro/Seal® VIP Charity Golf Tournament raised over $17,000 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.
One hundred sixteen Inpro/Seal customers, vendors and employees attended the Inpro/Seal VIP Charity Golf Tournament, held Monday, August 13 at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Ill., to raise money for this deserving local cause.
The $17,625 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.
“The Inpro/Seal VIP Charity Golf Tournament is a great opportunity to bring together our customers, suppliers and employees to raise donations for a great local cause.” said Chris Johnson, Inpro/Seal Vice President and General Manager. “We are always excited to partner with Aspire for this event knowing the large impact they make helping those with special abilities.”
Inpro/Seal has partnered with Aspire for seven years, raising more than $110,000 to support the non-profit’s enterprises, including Aspire Kids, Aspire Careers and Aspire Living.
“Dover and the Inpro/Seal team are more than just supporters – they have become full-fledged members of the Aspire family.” said Jim Kales, CEO of Aspire. “We are grateful, humbled and incredibly enthused about their passion for spreading Aspire’s message of inclusion.”
