The event organized by the Arpin Charitable Fund Inc. was held at the New England Country Club in Bellingham, Mass. The goal of the Arpin Charitable Fund is to help those in need during natural disasters or when unfortunate circumstances arise through various fundraising activities throughout the year.
“We are overjoyed by the success of our first annual Arpin Strong Golf Outing and the community spirit all of our participants and sponsors displayed,” said Mike Killoran, treasurer of the Arpin Charitable Fund, Inc. “This money will contribute to several important causes where it is greatly needed.”
Of the over $17,000 raised, $14,000 will be split equally in denominations of $3,500 and donated to the following charitable organizations: the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, Save the Bay, the Tomorrow Fund and the Wounded Warrior Project. The remainder of the funds will be used to promote other non-profit organizations and to continue with regular monthly donations to various charities.
The first Arpin Strong Golf outing was organized by Mark Dearborn, Michael Killoran and Kathy Frazier, all of whom are members of the organization’s board of directors.
Gold and platinum event sponsors were Capacity Coverage Company of New Jersey, Inc., Courtney International Forwarding, Inc., DAS, High Relo Worldwide, LGCD CPAs/Business Advisors, Labor Ready, Tarbox Hyundai, GTS, Mellor Agency, Nuss Relocations and Steven Freight.
