Square One has relationships throughout the community and often finds itself aligned with charitable organizations. Recently, a friend of the owners - Mike King - passed away after a battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It affects everything from movement to speech to even breathing, and is considered the most common of the five motor neuron diseases.
This Saturday, June 8th at 1:30pm there will be a golf invitational fundraiser at Fox Run Golf Course, 3001 MacIneery Drive, Council Bluffs, IA sponsored by Square One and other community leaders in honor of Mike King. The money raised will go to cover expenses from Mike's battle with ALS.
While the deadline has passed to golf, you can still participate by attending the event as a spectator, or by donating to the cause. Donations can be mailed to: Mike King Invitational, c/o Kent Bogardus, 316 Wildwood Rd, Council Bluffs, IA 51503. Or you can visit our website at http://www.square1club.com and click on the Donate tab on the left side of the home page.
You can also help the greater cause by spreading the word about ALS and helping donate toward research for a cure.
Thank you for your help and support of this great cause!
