The O’Donnell & Friends Open is the largest fundraising event that O’Donnell & Friends Charities holds. This event alone has raised over one million dollars for local charities in the Greater Des Moines area. The 26th annual O’Donnell & Friends Open was held on June 28, 2019, at Toad Valley Golf Course and raised more than $80,000 for Des Moines area causes.
The 27th annual O’Donnell & Friends Open was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, $85,000 was raised for FOUR Des Moines area nonprofits: Children’s Cancer Connection, EveryStep, Healthy Birth Day, and American Brawn.
In 2020, we were also able to recognize 14 recipients of the Dan & Dee O’Donnell Memorial Scholarship. Additionally, a successful online auction was conducted thanks to the partnership and generosity of Mentor Iowa.
