Not only do these events build great camaraderie, but they are held in honor of Karl Larson, who passed away in 2012. His passion for giving back to the industry is something the Larson Company continues to support through these golf outings. Karl and Madeleine endowed the Larson HVAC Lab at the College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Colorado - Boulder, which is used for students to conduct research in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.  The Karl Larson HVAC Research Fund was established to continue to support this lab.  Funds raised from our charity golf outings are donated to help fund scholarships to graduate and undergraduate students at the university in conjunction with the Larson Lab.

This year, we raised almost $42,000, our highest donation to date. Thanks to our supplier sponsors, customer donations, employee donations, and Larson Company match, we have raised over $150,000 in scholarships over the past five years to support the HVAC industry! We especially want to recognize our 2017 platinum sponsors, Advanced Distributor Products, and ServiceFirst. This outing has quickly become a great tradition to end the busy summer, and we look forward to hosting more events in the future.
