Pewaukee, WI, United States – The Gustave A. Larson Company - the midwest, plains and mountain states leading wholesale distributor of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration products has recently concluded this year’s Karl G. Larson Fundraiser event with remarkable success. The goal of $75,000 was just shy of being reached, at 93%. However, given the current circumstances and the format of the event, the company considers the event as highly successful, and there was great participation even in a pandemic year. As always, the Larson Company has matched the donations, bringing the total to about $140,000. The outing in Kohler also went fantastically, and all customers wanted to contribute to the amount mentioned above.
The Karl G. Larson Fundraiser is typically organized as a charity golf tournament that lasts a few days. However, due to the global pandemic, the event was organized online this year and was open to all Larson customers. The silent auction-style event lasted from September 14, 2020 at 7:00 a.m. CT to September 21, 2020 at 8 p.m. CT. The proceeds are going to fund indoor air quality research at the Larson Building Systems Laboratory
in Boulder, CO and HVAC education in local communities.
“Our annual Karl G. Larson Fundraisers are always a joyous occasion where we can meet up with our customers, play some golf, and support a good cause. Sadly, this year, the global events prevented us from meeting up in person, but we decided to go through with the event online,” – says Scott Larson, President and COO of the Larson Company. Mr. Larson continues: “We would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support and we hope to see you all in person for the 2021 KGL Golf Outings.”
The Larson Company would also like to send out a special thank you also to all of the sponsors, especially the Platinum level sponsors: Rheem and Russell; and Gold sponsor, Packard. The support from all involved is instrumental in making the outings a success year after year.
