Giving Back

Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race A charity fund-raising event that is very important is the Disc'n For Dogs Ace Race disc golf tournament held annually at Camden Park, Milan, Ill. Beginning in 2007, I have helped event creator, disc golfer and animal lover Paul Roesner organize this event, which he launched in 2005. All proceeds from the tournament raise money for the Quad-City Animal Welfare Center, or QCAWC. The Quad City Animal Welfare Center is the only full service no-kill animal shelter located in the Quad Cities. The mission is a shelter for homeless animals, to support a spay and a neuter program and to provide humane education.

Quad-City Ice Bowl Since 2008, I have been heavily involved with organizing the Quad-City Ice Bowl disc golf tournament. This event benefits the River Bend Foodbank in Moline by raising monetary and food donations. Ice Bowls - held around the globe - are for all those disc golfers gutsy, crazy, desperate or fun-loving enough to join together in an act of disc golf solidarity. Regardless of the weather conditions, the idea is to have fun, raise funds and food for a local food bank.
