Creek Run Raises Over $4,800 for the Friends of the Limberlost
Creek Run hosted the 10th Annual James Peterson Memorial Fish Fry & Cornhole Tournament on August 5, 2016. James Peterson, former owner of Jay Petroleum, was one of the founders of Creek Run. This is a charity event held every year in August for Creek Run employees, family, clients, and contractors. All funds raised from the event were donated to the Friends of the Limberlost which was a charity near and dear to Jim Peterson. Creek Run raised a record amount this year of $4,838.16!
Before the tournament started, everyone enjoyed a fish fry lunch. All fish were caught, cleaned, and prepared by Creek Run’s very own Mike Zimmerman. Features of the event this year included a 5K run/walk on Creek Run’s Stewardship Trail located in the woods next to our office, a car/motorcycle cruise-in, golf chipping game, silent auction, an employee money jar challenge (which ended with a bucket of ice water dumped over 6 gracefully accepting employees’ heads), and, of course, cornhole tournament!
Creek Run also raised an additional $2,000 in honor of our colleague, Mohamed Asif, who passed away in July. The funds will be sent to Indiana State University as an outside scholarship for his daughter to use for tuition and room and board during her freshmen year at college. Thank you all for attending and contributing to this annual event. We hope to see you all next year!
