Here at Korte Does It All, Inc. we feel incredibly grateful for all of the support we’ve received over the years from our community and we feel compelled to give back in any way we can. Last year, we hosted our 1st annual Korte Klassic Golf Scramble which was a big success. The Korte Kares team has also participated in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk for the past three years and we look forward to participating again this year! Finally, we have turned our own trucks into a sort of moving billboard to raise awareness for worthy causes every day.
Korte Klassic Golf Scramble
At our 1st annual Korte Klassic Golf Scramble held on October 7, 2017, we were able to raise over $6,000. Half of the money raised went to our Korte Kares Team and toward the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk. The other half was donated to one of our employees whose daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer in June 2017.
Making Strides for Breast Cancer
For the past three years, we have participated in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk. We look forward to this year’s walk!
When you see a Korte Does It All, Inc. truck around town, you may notice colored ribbons on each side of it. Each one of our ribbon trucks is dedicated to raising awareness for a different cause. These decorated service vehicles are Korte’s way of keeping these diseases at the forefront of the community’s mind.
Our first truck was the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness. The truck has been parked at any Making Strides Against Breast Cancer function to show our support in raising awareness for this horrible disease.
Our second truck is the Support our Troops ribbon. Korte Does It All has partnered with Nexstar Legacy Foundation as part of their Troops To Trades program, which encourages individuals transitioning into the civilian workforce to explore the trades of heating & cooling, plumbing, and electrical services as a successful career option.
Our third van bares the green ribbon that represents the importance of Mental Health Awareness. This van has a very special meaning to the Korte family, as it is dedicated to a very close friend of our founders, who took his own life in 2019. He was a very successful, greatly admired physician who appeared to have a great life. We want the community to know how important it is to talk about this so that we can try and prevent people from getting lost down the path of poor mental health.
Our fourth van features the colorful Autism Awareness ribbon. We know Autism affects so many people, including several Korte Does It All, Inc. employees and their families. That’s why it seemed a natural choice to shine a light on it.
