Aspire Receives $20,000 Donation from the Inpro/Seal Family
The 28th annual Inpro/Seal VIP Charity Golf Tournament raised $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.
Ninety-seven Inpro/Seal customers, vendors and employees attended the VIP Charity Golf Tournament Monday, August 10 at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Ill., to raise money and build awareness for this deserving local cause.
The $20,000 donation was supported in part through a new 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.
“This year’s record donation is a direct result of the relationships we have developed with our customers, vendors and corporate partners across our business,” stated Tim Sexton, Vice President and General Manager of Inpro/Seal. “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Aspire for this event and look forward to continuing that relationship and seeing what we can accomplish next year.”
Inpro/Seal has partnered with Aspire for the last four VIP Charity Golf Tournaments, raising more than $50,000 to support the non-profit’s enterprises, including Aspire Kids, Aspire Careers and Aspire Living.
Jim Kales, President and CEO of Aspire, said, “We simply could not do the work we do without private investment. As the state of Illinois continues to struggle through its budgeting process, we are so grateful to have the Inpro/Seal team as part of Aspire’s extended family and look forward to this event every year. It is truly amazing to be returning with a $20,000 check in our hands! Thank you, Inpro/Seal and Dover Corporation.”
Aspire provides high-quality, personalized services to more than 1,000 kids and adults in the Chicagoland area with developmental disabilities. From its inception over 50 years ago, Aspire has pushed the boundaries of what is possible for people with disabilities. Today, Aspire continues to promote models of inclusion ahead of society’s expectations.
