The annual NIPCO Midwest Golf Invitational took place six months ago yet its impact still resonates throughout NIPCO’s service territory.

The 19th annual NIPCO Midwest Golf Invitational was held at the Dakota Dunes Country Club in August of 2018. The event brought NIPCO and its seven member distribution cooperatives, commercial and industrial accounts and industry partners together for a day of golf and networking for the benefit of good causes in western Iowa.

The event raised $10,500 which is divided, evenly, among NIPCO’s seven Class A Members for distribution to charitable organizations serving within their territories. Several member cooperatives sought additional matching donations from partners such as Basin Electric Power Cooperative, and CoBank’s “Sharing Success” program. Twenty-two organizations, from local food banks and special needs service facilities, to public daycare, youth STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs, emergency service organizations, and many others received donations from this year’s golf event.

Over the past 19 years of the golf tournament, NIPCO and its members have raised $379,500 to benefit local charitable organizations in western Iowa.

The 2019 NIPCO Midwest Golf Invitational is scheduled for August 26 at the Dakota Dunes Country Club. For information on participating as a golfer and/or a sponsor, please contact Angela Catton.
