MINNEAPOLIS, MN – (September 23, 2014) – Courage Kenny Foundation and ABRA Auto Body and Glass are proud to announce they raised more than $100,000 to support people with disabilities.

Both organizations partner annually to improve the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through a golf fundraiser supporting Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute’s sports and recreation department.

More than 100 golfers played at the renowned Hazeltine National Golf Course in Chaska, MN on Monday, September 8. The annual charity event helps supports Courage Kenny sports and recreation programs for people with disabilities. The course provided plenty of challenges and laughs and, most importantly, raised significant funds to support an essential community resource.

“We are proud of our longtime support of Courage Kenny Foundation,” said Duane Rouse, president and chief executive officer of ABRA Auto Body & Glass. “It is rewarding to see the results of our contribution and efforts reflected in the smiles and accomplishments of Courage Kenny clients. We’d also like to thank key preferred partners for their commitment and support of such a wonderful event.”

Courage Kenny Foundation would like to sincerely thank ABRA Auto Body and Glass and their partners for their long standing and significant support.

The Institute’s sports and recreation department offers leisure and competitive athletic endeavors such as adaptive golf, wheelchair basketball and softball, archery, power soccer, adaptive ski and snowboarding, and many other activities for people with disabilities. Sports and recreation activities provide many physical and mental benefits and offer a forum to build lifelong friendships, and help people live life to the fullest. These programs would not exist without philanthropy.

Courage Kenny Foundation would also like to thank the following event sponsors:  3M, Henson & Efron, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes, PPG Industries, Floyd Total Security, Kent Automotive, Deli Express, Cottingham and Butler, Inc, Innovative Tools and Technologies, OfficeMax, Gray Plant Mooty and PWC.
