Fareway Stores recently partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to host the 6th Annual Fareway Stores MDA Golf Classic at the Tournament Club of Iowa in Polk City. The event raised more than $78,000 for MDA of Iowa, making it the best year for the golf tournament. Funds raised at this event will fund research and provide healthcare services and support for MDA families across the state.

“We are very proud of our history and support of MDA, which has spanned nearly 25 years,” said Frederick R. Greiner, Fareway’s president and COO. “The annual golf classic is just another way Fareway and our vendor partners can help MDA in their fight to work towards finding a cure for muscle-debilitating diseases.”

banquetThirty-eight vendor retailers provided sponsorships and teams, making it a full tournament with 155 golfers. The event was presented by Dr Pepper Snapple Group; other top sponsors included PepsiCo, Tyson Fresh Meats and Wells Blue Bunny. A silent auction, awards presentation and dinner concluded the day.

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Fareway, their vendors and the support they show MDA each year,” said Brette Dowson, area director with MDA. “The funds raised at this event are crucial to local families here in Iowa and helps fund ground-breaking research, a state of the art Care Center at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and helps send kids to MDA Summer Camp where they make life-long friends and memories.”
