Rural Electric Co-ops Raise Funds for Charities

A group of golfers—118 of them—spent a picture-perfect day in August on the Dakota Dunes Country Club Golf Course, not just as a fun day in the sun, but as a joint effort to raise funds for local charities.

The result of the day on the golf course: Over $7,000 was collected to benefit local community non-profit groups and charitable organizations.  

The 18th annual Touchstone Energy® Midwest Golf Invitational was sponsored by NIPCO, its western Iowa member cooperatives, and several national and regional business partners.

Each of NIPCO’s seven member cooperatives, including your cooperative, received just over $1,000, an equal share of the event’s net proceeds to distribute to charities in their communities. 

Over the past 18 years of the golf tournament, NIPCO and member cooperatives have raised over $369,000 to benefit local charitable organizations in western Iowa.
