New Berlin-based Emteq Inc. presented this week a check for $102,003.78 to Chldren’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
The funds stemmed from the Emteq Charity Golf Outing last summer.
The golf outing started as an employee event in 2005, raising a few hundred dollars, but has evolved to a yearlong fundraising effort and community event that has contributed over $650,000 to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin over the past nine years.
The company’s current fundraising programs includes participating in Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk, internal fundraising efforts including snack sales and rummage sale, and Blue Ribbon sales during April for Child Abuse Awareness month. The 2013 cornerstone event in July featured a golf outing, dinner and live and silent auctions which brought together more than 150 individuals and 40 sponsors from the community and companies across the United States.
“The next level of leaders are the valued children. Our support for Children’s Hospital and Child Advocacy Programs meets our desires to have no kids left behind and to create chances and opportunities for all,” said Jerry Jendusa, EMTEQ chief executive officer.
“At Children’s, we believe kids deserve the best and we are committed to our vision that Wisconsin kids will be the healthiest in the country,” said Bob Duncan, executive vice president of Community Services at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. “We recognize that the health of a child involves so much more than absence of disease. We work to reach children where they are and provide necessary care, either through our many services or connecting families with other resources.”
From school nursing to foster care and adoption services to counseling services and more, Community Services works to ensure that Wisconsin’s kids have access to health care, keeping them well.
Emteq will continue the tradition as it plans for its 10th annual golf outing to take place at the Legend at Brandybrook golf course on in Wales on Monday, July 21, 2014.
BizTimes Media is the media sponsor for the annual event.
