Annual Community Classic Golf Outing
Event Raises $9,500 for New Non-Profit
Stark Company Realtors is proud to present $9,500 to the Madison Community Policing Foundation (MCPF). The proceeds from our 9th Annual Community Classic Golf Outing mark one of the largest amounts we have raised from this event.

“We created the Community Classic to pool our efforts to give back to the community that has given us so much,” said David Stark, President of Stark Company Realtors. “Each year we pick an organization to donate our proceeds from the event. The MCPF was an easy choice. We believe what they believe – to advance our community, you have to invest both time and money in relationships. There’s no other way.”
The $9,500 donation is the first official fundraiser for the newly-created non-profit organization. The MCPF was created in the spring of 2016 by a group of retired Madison police officers with the goal of supporting, honoring and growing the relationship between local police and our communities.
“Stark Company Realtors is right at the top when you think of a community-minded organization,” said Captain Balles, MCPF Chair for the Board of Directors. “It is quite an honor to receive this type of support, from this type of company, in our first six months.”
