Stanion Wholesale Electric Co., Pratt, Kan., last month completed its seventh annual Charity Golf Classic to benefit the Special Olympics.

This year's event teed-off at Falcon Lakes Golf Club in Basehor, Kan., and raised over $75,000 for the Special Olympics, bringing the company's total for the seven years it's been sponsoring the tournament to $535,000. The funds go to help thousands of children and adults with intellectual disabilities participate in quality sports programs across Kansas. The Stanion tournament is the single largest fundraiser of the year for Special Olympics Kansas, says Otto Buche, executive vice president of Stanion and tournament chairman.
