Purolite supports the 7th annual nancy valenkamph memorial golf outing

On a sunny afternoon at DeMotte, Indiana's Sandy Pines Country Club, Purolite's Oliver Baumann and Frank Burinsky joined a host of Power Industry professionals, as well as friends and other industry associates to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

In its seventh year, the Nancy Valenkamph Memorial Golf Outing supports the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life Program. Specifically, the event honors the promise that Bert Valenkamph, Director of Station Chemistry and Environmental Compliance for the Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO), made to his wife who lost her battle with neuro-endocrine carcinoma.

As of 2016, the event has raised $575,000 toward the cause, with $128K raised by the event this Spring alone. All proceeds for the golf event, and supporting events such as a cornhole tournament is donated to the American Cancer Society to help find a cure for this, and many other cancers.

On behalf of the many families affected by this disease, we thank Bert for his tireless efforts, and we are proud to sponsor and support this cause.
