On June 29th, LaDona Molander and John Krumbholz, Iowa Chapter Co-Presidents, were fortunate enough to attend the O’Donnell Family & Friends Golf Outing. As the name suggests, this event is organized by Dan and Dee O’Donnell along with their entire family and friends to benefit a different non-profit organization each year. In 2012, the Iowa Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association was honored to be the recipient of this year’s proceeds.
It was a beautiful day filled with golf, good food, and lots of friendly interactions. After an amazing outpouring of support and good will, LaDona and John were presented with a check for $80,000 from this year’s event. This was the most successful of the 19 outings the O’Donnell’s have sponsored and the proceeds will go a long way towards easing the burden of those Iowans with Parkinson Disease and their caregivers.
We are very thankful to the entire O’Donnell family for their hard work and generosity. At a time when many people are more focused on their own personal gratification, the O’Donnells have forged a legacy of doing for others that will not soon be forgotten. May God bless them for all they have done and will continue to do in service to others…. may He hold them in the palm of His hand.
