At the culmination of its fourth annual Fore the Cause charity golf tournament on June 10, the Do it Best Foundation announced a new fundraising milestone. Through this one-day event held across four of the Midwest’s top golf courses, the Foundation raised over $1,031,000 to further its mission of supporting health and wellness and youth enrichment nonprofit initiatives. This is the largest amount raised to date at the Fore the Cause event, beating last year’s total by 54%.

The Do it Best Foundation is a philanthropic organization formed in 2019 by Do it Best, the international home improvement member-owned co-op headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Nearly 500 attendees participated in the tournament and reception activities, with hundreds traveling to Fort Wayne for the event.

Do it Best Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Nick Talarico, who is also the president of the Foundation, shared his excitement for the organization’s recent momentum. “Today’s event exemplifies what can be accomplished when a philanthropic vision is championed by a large group of caring people,” he said. “Many great not-for-profit groups will benefit because of the generosity of our vendor partners who participated in our Fore the Cause event.”

In just four years the Do it Best Foundation has awarded over $1 million in grants to nonprofit organizations nationwide. “The funds raised today will allow us to continue to improve the lives of kids and families in a significant way,” added Talarico. “Our goal is to make a major positive impact in all of the communities where the Do it Best team lives, works, and plays.”
