Purcellville, Va. (Jan. 24, 2015)—Members of the LoCo Disc Golf Club collectively raised $3,100 in cash donations and 120lbs of food for Loudoun Interfaith Relief during their yearly Ice Bowl Food Drive at Franklin Park in Purcellville, Va.

The LoCo Ice Bowl is part of an international series of winter disc golf events dedicated to fighting hunger. Since 1986, over $2.8 million dollars have been raised via Ice Bowl® disc golf tournaments. The LoCo Ice Bowl, through the efforts of the LoCo Disc Golf Club, has raised over $5,000 and 350lbs of food over the past 4 years, with 100% of all donations going directly to Loudoun Interfaith Relief.

Loudoun Interfaith Relief is Loudoun’s largest food pantry serving more than 15,000 people annually through more than 30,000 visits.  Forty three percent of those served are children. For more information, visit their website at www.interfaithrelief.org.

2015 LoCo Ice Bowl Results

WOW!!! Speechless! For those of you that missed out on the 4th Annual LoCo Ice Bowl and Chili Cook-Off you REALLY missed out! Brian Junkins nailed it again this year and blew away the goal of reaching $1,000 to benefit Loudoun Interfaith Relief.  Thanks to everyone who helped and donated (you know who you are), the LoCo Disc Golf Club was able to raise OVER $3,000!!!! That’s just amazing!  Good job everything that helped make it happen!  Also, a special thanks to Matt Shaffer for collecting/donating over $750, the most by a single individual, and the recipient of a new Innova Discatcher Traveler!
