The Arpin Charitable Fund announced this week that its Third Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament, held at the New England Country Club in Bellingham, Mass., has successfully raised $30,800 for charity.

The goal of the Arpin Charitable Fund is to help those in need during natural disasters or when unfortunate circumstances arise through various fundraising activities throughout the year.

“Our aim is always to raise as much as possible for our designated charities,” said Michael Killoran, co-chairman of the Arpin Charitable Fund Inc. golf committee and chief financial officer of Arpin Group. “To realize a revenue increase of 35% in our third year hosting the Arpin Strong Golf Tournament is beyond any of our expectations. The continued outpouring of support from many of our business partners and friends is a testament that people really do care. Thanks to their generosity, we will be able to support that many more charitable organizations this coming year.”

Of the funds raised, $26,000 will be split equally in denominations of $6,500 and donated to the following charitable organizations: Hope Hospice & Palliative Care of Rhode Island, Serve Rhode Island, The Tomorrow Fund, and The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain. The remainder of the funds will be used to promote other non-profit organizations and to continue with regular monthly donations to various charities.

Gold and platinum event sponsors were Arpin America Moving Systems, Atrion, Courtney International, High Relocation Worldwide–Korea, LGC+D, Mellor Agency, International Logistic Services Inc., KHZ International Movers–Netherlands, and Ross & Company.

The Fourth Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament has been scheduled for May 20, 2017, at the New England Country Club.
