Ames, Iowa – February 6, 2013 – Becker Underwood presented the Wee One Foundation with a check for $5,210 at the 2013 Golf Industry Show. The donation was the result of a program with the company’s Transition HC turf colorant that offered a donation for every case purchased through December 31.

“We are grateful to the distributor partners and superintendents who participated in this program to benefit the Wee One Foundation,” says Joe Lara, product manager at Becker Underwood. “Our goal was set for $5,000 and with their help, we surpassed that.”
For every case of Transition HC purchased during August 15 through December 31, 2012, Becker Underwood offered to donate $10 on behalf of the purchasing superintendent to the Wee One Foundation. And for every early purchase made between August 15 and September 30, 2012, Becker Underwood would add an additional $5 per case matching gift, for a total donation of $15 per case.
“The mission of the foundation to provide financial assistance to golf course superintendents and their families during times of hardship is important to us,” adds Lara. “We appreciate the opportunity to help them achieve that mission.”
