Bookmark and Share

For the 18th year, the Ockenfels Family Foundation held its Annual Charity Golf Outing near Iowa City, Iowa, Aug. 7. Over 170 golfers from the United States and Canada participated. More than 45 friends, family, and City Carton Document Destruction and Recycling Services team members assisted with the event at Brown Deer Golf Club. The one-day event raised more than $129,000 for the American Cancer Society's Scholarship Program and Children's Cancer Connection (a non-profit organization providing support services and programs for children with cancer and their families). Over the years, the foundation has raised more than $1 million for cancer programs.

One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds were donated because the Ockenfels Family Foundation paid all expenses. The event was held in memory of Deborah Ockenfels, daughter of City Carton founders Mort and Marcy Ockenfels. Deborah died of cancer at the age of 17. In addition, Chris Ockenfels is a NAID Past President and currently serves on the President’s Advisory Council and the Board of the NAID Worldata Holding Company.
