For NRCA member Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal, Wheeling, W. Va., its 11-year partnership with the Edouard S. Ziegler Easter Seal Rehabilitation Center has always made sense.
“It’s a remarkable organization with a heartfelt commitment to serve those living with disabilities in our local community and beyond,” says John Kalkreuth, president and CEO of Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal. “We are humbled by the opportunity to provide a donation that continues to grow each year.”
Their annual event, the Kalkreuth Amatuer Golf Classic Benefiting Easter Seals at Oglesbay Resort’s Crispin Golf Course, raised more than $22,000 for Easter Seals in June 2017. Overall, the golf outing has raised more than $60,000 since the event’s inception.
This year’s event will take place June 14-16.
In recent years, Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal’s national vendor partners include ABC Supply Co. Inc., Beloit, Wis.; Johns Manville, Denver; Beacon Roofing Supply Inc., Herndon, Va.; Firestone Building Products, Nashville; and Allied Building Products Corp., East Rutherford, N.J. Sponsor support has provided extra revenue that has significantly increased Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal’s annual donation to Easter Seals.
“It’s our biggest third-party fundraising event,” says Melissa Marco, community relations director at the Edoard S. Ziegler Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center. “The funds they raise are huge for our organization.”
Easter Seals provides children and adults with special needs with services that include medical rehabilitation, speech therapy, physical therapy, mental health services, day care and autism services.
The Edouard S. Ziegler Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center currently serves more than 2,000 children and provides nearly 20,000 home visits per year. No child seeking Easter Seals’ services is turned away.
The support provided by Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal has played a significant role in furthering Easter Seals’ mission of creating solutions that change lives for children and adults with special needs.
“Without Kalkreuth Roofiing and Sheet Metal’s continued friendship, the good work that happens at our center each day would not be possible,” says Jay Prager, CEO of the Edoard S. Ziegler Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center. “Their involvement helps Easter Seals to continue providing services to the many children and adults with special needs and their families in our area.”
