The Arpin Charitable Fund announced today that its Sixth Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament, held at the Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut, Massachusetts, has successfully raised $45,856 for charity.
The Arpin Charitable Fund, also known as Arpin Strong, was formed to help those in need during natural disasters, or when unfortunate circumstances arise, by participating in community-based volunteer projects and fundraising events throughout the year.
“This year’s charity golf tournament was bittersweet because it not only marked Arpin Strong’s sixth year, but it was dedicated to the memories of two very special friends and colleagues whom had recently passed away,” said Michael Killoran, chairman of the Arpin Charitable Fund, Inc. golf committee and chief financial officer of Arpin Group. “Both Bob Sullivan, SVP, Corporate Accounts, and Mark Dearborn, VP Global Accounts and Arpin Strong’s founding member, were highly-respected associates of the Arpin team that cared deeply for the community, and led by example. We are proud to carry on their legacy and continue to make a difference to help solve the defining social issues of our time. To date, our annual golf tournaments have collectively raised over $175,000 for charity, and we are very proud of our volunteers, sponsors, and friends who have helped us achieve this incredible benchmark.”
Of the funds raised at this year’s event, $40,000 has been split equally in denominations of $20,000 and donated to the following charitable organizations: The Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Marguerite’s Place. The remainder of the funds will be used to promote other nonprofit organizations and to continue with regular monthly donations to various charities.
Arpin Strong wishes to thank all of its sponsors, particularly Courtney International Forwarding, Plus Relocation Services, Citrin Cooperman Accountants & Advisors, and Weichert Move Network, the event’s top sponsors, and gold sponsors, Aires, Aqueduct Technologies, Physicians Resources, Ltd, AGS Worldwide Movers, Move One, Inc., and Mellor Agency.
