Feldpausch Foundation Golf Outing Supports BBC Cancer Fund
BATTLE CREEK, Mich – Feldpausch Foundation hosted its seventh annual golf outing raising $18,100 for the Bronson Battle Creek Cancer Care Medication Fund. This fund assures that cancer patients who have little or no insurance will have access to needed medications for their treatments.
“Patients with cancer already have a lot on their minds. Through the medication fund, we are able to offer those in need some relief from the worry about paying for lifesaving treatments,” says Carmen Foljahn, fund development specialist at Bronson Battle Creek. Some of the medications the fund has sponsored over the years cost in the thousands of dollars. Through generous donors like the Feldpausch Foundation, the fund is able to provide more than 600 medications a year to patients.
Feldpausch Foundation was formed through the success of a three-generation grocery chain founded in Hastings, Michigan in 1933. It invests its resources in local charitable causes. Nearly $150,000 has been raised through these golf outings over the past seven years for local cancer programs.
“My deepest appreciation goes out to all who made the Feldpausch Foundation golf outing such a success again,” said Corey LaGro, golf outing coordinator. “I especially want to acknowledge our generous sponsors including Mike and Kim Brubaker, Bronson Battle Creek – Carmen Foljahn, Firekeepers Casino, Battle Creek Community Foundation, Vince and Caroline Pavone – Lakeview Ford, Binder Park Zoo, Chad and Tina Kyger – CTI Mechanical, Merrill Lynch, Drew and Stacy Schweitzer – Schweitzer Inc., JETCO Signs, R&S Tree Service – Steve and Beth Shepard, Battle Creek Tile, Anne Hubert, Marvin Chamberlain, Cereal City Sunrise Rotary, The CSM Group, Jan Cavanaugh, Clear Rate Communications, Chuck and Cindy Carroll, Martin and Cheri Curtis, Pat and Deb Gallagher, Stanton Interiors, The Energy Nook – Chris and Deb Cooley, Marian E.
