Aspire Receives Large Donation from the Inpro/Seal Family
The 29th annual Inpro/Seal® VIP Charity Golf Tournament raised over $20,000 for Aspire, a non-profit recognized throughout the Midwest as a leader in providing bold, pioneering and uncompromising services to children and adults with developmental disabilities.
One hundred four Inpro/Seal customers, vendors and employees attended the VIP Charity Golf Tournament Monday, August 8 at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Ill., to raise money and build awareness for this deserving local cause.
The $20,010 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.
“Our annual VIP Charity Golf Tournament continues to grow each year due to the strong relationships we have built with our customers, vendors and corporate partners,” said Tim Sexton, Vice President and General Manager of Inpro/Seal. “I am always excited to work with Aspire as they strive to innovate and develop new programs that help kids and adults with disabilities be included in the local community.”
Inpro/Seal has partnered with Aspire for the last five VIP Charity Golf Tournaments, raising more than $70,000 to support the non-profit’s enterprises, including Aspire Kids, Aspire Careers and Aspire Living.
“We simply could not do the work we do without private investment and partners like Inpro/Seal and Dover Corporation,” said Jim Kales, CEO of Aspire. “As the state of Illinois continues to struggle through its budgeting process, we are grateful to have the Inpro/Seal team‘s continued support. It’s truly amazing to be returning with a $20,000 check in our hands!”
