Chesapeake Energy's Utica Shale division hosted a golf outing in early October to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties, and raised $60,000 in the process. The end result surpassed Chesapeake's goal for the fundraising event, which was $50,000. In addition to making the donation, Chesapeake staff will again assist in a Habitat for Humanity build, similar to what they did in June 2011. The new home for a Habitat for Humanity recipient family will be constructed in the spring, in Carroll County, according to Pete Kenworthy, manager of media relations at Chesapeake.
The event took place at Brookside Country Club in Canton. The tournament sponsor was Beaver Excavating, and the lunch sponsor was CESO and Mathena Energy.
"Many local companies deserve a great deal of appreciation for their participation in the recent golf outing at Brookside Country Club that raised money for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Stark and Carroll Counties," said Aimee Belden, community relations coordinator. "Without the support of those sponsor companies, we would not have been able to raise the $60,000 and commit to building a home for a needy family. We look forward to completing this project in the spring when Chesapeake employees will volunteer their time to construct the house in Carroll County."
