ABRA Helps Raise More Than $100,000 for People with Disabilities

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 in Minnesota and western Wisconsin 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 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.”

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.
