An Incredible Time at the 2020 Marklund Golf Classic
We’ve got another year in the books for the annual Marklund Golf Classic! Each year since 2006, we’ve been a title sponsor of this fun-filled day of golfing and giving back to Marklund, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities.
To ensure everyone’s safety, this year’s event was held virtually, but was still jam-packed with plenty of excitement. Featured appearances included big names like Food Network’s Jeff Mauro, Jeremy Roenick, Masters champion Craig Stadler, former Bear Mike Singletary, UFC’s Bruce Buffer and our very own Jim and Bud Porter, the CEO and President of Porter Pipe!
Jim and Bud were on-site at the new culture center of our sister company, Bulldog Cartage, to help virtually host the event, decked out in matching USA-themed pants to show off their pride of being American family businessmen. The pair also generously matched the amount raised during the event’s silent auction.
Despite being the first virtual year for the outing, the Marklund Golf Classic saw a turnout of nearly 200 households tuning in and over $145,000 raised. It just goes to show that not even a pandemic can stop the good hearts and charitable nature of the incredible community Marklund has built. We can’t wait to join them again next year!
