26th Jacupke Golf Tournament Sees Terrific Turnout


The 26th Annual IIAN Golf Tournament last Thursday was a success! There were 140 players participating in an amazing day of golf, prizes and camaraderie, while raising more than $25,000 for the IIAN Foundation's college outreach and scholarships.  ​

While at the event, golfers could enter a raffle to support the IIAN Foundation for a chance to win a Kansas City Royals Signature Suite package, sponsored by our Industry Partner, Imperial PFS.  

The names drawn as the raffle winners were Greg Zimmer, Simon McKenzie, Jeremiah Gudding, Justin Hochstein and Todd Anderson. Each of these winners will receive four suite tickets to a Kansas City Royals game this fall, a parking pass and a catered meal.

The best scoring teams of golfers won prizes as well! In the first flight, first place went to Mitch Florea, Sean Kruger, Tyler Bebout and Trey Strong with a score of 54. Second place went to Mark Egge, Troy Bridgford, Paul Johnson and Cole Joneson with a score of 55.

This annual golf tournament was named in memory of Jay Jacupke, CPCU, who was associated with Ellerbrock-Norris Agency in Hastings. Jay served in many association capacities, including Secretary-Treasurer in 1995. Jay lost his heroic battle with cancer in 1996 at the age of 44. 

Thank you all for participating in this year’s event and supporting the college outreach program. Your contributions will aid the IIAN Foundation's efforts of ushering in the next generation of workers to the insurance industry!
