Concern for Community
Valley Rural Electric Cooperative's employee health and wellness committee organized its first benefit golf tournament in 2012. Since that time, the golf outing has evolved into an all-hands-on-deck event that raises thousands of dollars annually for beneficiaries. Valley's corporate office and three district offices close on golf tournament day, often a Thursday in June. All employees lend a hand on the course for the culmination of an employee-driven fundraising effort for local families.
However, we could not do this without our sponsors, donors, and golfers. The generous support of a wide range of area businesses and individuals help our beneficiaries better meet the financial challenges that all too often result from serious illnesses or accidents. Together, we have raised about $180,000 since that first tournament.
