Donation Sets Fundraising Record for Annual Community Classic Golf Outing

MADISON—The 11th Annual Stark Company Realtors Community Classic Golf Outing set a new fundraising record. The event raised $18,200 for Badger Honor Flight. 

“Our Realtors surpassed last year’s record-setting donation, once again showing their commitment to organizations focused on improving our communities,” said David Stark, President of Stark Company Realtors. “My father and World War II veteran, Phillip Stark, was lucky enough to go on an honor flight in 2012. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is deserved by all veterans, and we wanted to do something to help the Badger Honor Flight make it a reality for more of them.”  

The Annual Community Classic Golf Outing was created in 2008 to pool the company’s efforts to give back to the community. Each year, Stark picks a new organization to donate the proceeds from the event. Since its inception, the Community Classic has raised just over of $98,000 for 14 community organizations. 

“Our mission at Badger Honor Flight is to recognize our Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington D.C to see the war memorials erected in their honor,” said Brian Ziegler, Chairman of the Board for Badger Honor Flight. “Our organization is successful due to the support of local fundraisers like the Stark Company Realtors golf outing. These events help us create awareness and raise funds to complete our mission. We are very thankful to be the recipient of this year’s Community Classic.”

The check presentation is scheduled for Friday, August 31 at 12:00 p.m. at the Dane County Regional Airport.
