The O’Donnell & Friends Open, first established in 1994, has raised more than $1.3 million dollars for Des Moines area causes. This is the largest fundraiser that O’Donnell & Friends Charities holds, and has been held at Toad Valley Golf course every year since its inception.
The 26th annual O’Donnell & Friends Open took place on June 28, 2019, at Toad Valley Golf Course. For the first time ever, O’Donnell & Friends Charities supported THREE worthy charitable organizations: Urbandale Community Action Network (UCAN), Link Associates, and Opportunity on Deck. We also recognized TEN recipients of the Dan & Dee O’Donnell Memorial Scholarship at this event.
Thank you to all the sponsors, contributors, volunteers, and golfers who helped make this day a success. With your efforts and generosity, we were able to provide more than $80,000 to local causes.
The 27th annual O’Donnell & Friends Open was set to take place on August 7, 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was cancelled. Although the Open has been cancelled, O’Donnell & Friends Charities has still committed to give $85,000 to FOUR worthy organizations: Children’s Cancer Connection, EveryStep, Count the Kicks by Healthy Birth Day, and American Brawn. Additionally, O’Donnell & Friends Charities is providing scholarships to 14 college students this year. Please help us meet our pledged commitments by providing a tax-deductible donation, or by participating in our silent auction taking place now through August 16th!
