Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing to Help Raise Funds on Sept. 26th



BETTENDORF, IOWA – In 2015, The Ascentra Credit Union Foundation provided over $79,500 in crucial funding for 39 local organizations including a $50,000 co-sponsorship of a Habitat for Humanity House in Davenport and a four-year commitment to Junior Achievement of the Heartland that amounts to $50,000. 



It was also the year the foundation successfully established the Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing as its annual fundraising event raising over $18,000 to help further the mission of making a positive impact in the communities served by Ascentra Credit Union.  This year’s annual Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing will take place on Monday, Sept. 26th at the Arsenal Island Golf Club in Rock Island, Ill.  



“We have heard terrific feedback from those who participated last year, letting us know how much they enjoyed all the activities we coordinated throughout the historic and scenic course at Arsenal Island,” Ascentra President and CEO Dale Owen said. “Knowing that we are also helping programs for our military families by golfing at the Rock Island Arsenal  made it an easy decision to return this September.”


The Sept. 26th event begins at noon and will include a box lunch, golf, cart, dinner and awards reception following the golf outing.  Registration is now open and can be accessed through a link on the foundation website at  People can register to golf and special sponsorship opportunities are still available for companies and organizations. 



The 2016 Paul Lensmeyer Golf Outing is made possible by the support of Allied Solutions and its family of companies, Burns-Fazzi, Brock and Associates, and Securian.  For more information about the golf outing please contact Ascentra Credit Union Event Coordinator Megan Guldenpfennig at 563-459-6909 or email
