Ice Bowl Check presentation 2021

Jennifer Montgomery, CEO of Loudoun Hunger Relief, said LHR is grateful for LoCo Disc Club’s efforts. LHR received a check for nearly $25,000 towards food relief.

The LoCo Disc Golf Club raised close to $25,000 for hungry relief through an Ice Bowl Tournament in 2021, according a release from Loudoun Hunger Relief (LHR). The club surpassed the previous record for money raised, set in 2013 by Mile High Disc Golf, which is based in Colorado.

Proceeds from the event were donated to Loudoun Hunger Relief (LHR).

This is the ninth year that the LoCo Disc Golf Club has participated in the nationwide Ice Bowl event to benefit LHR.

LoCo Ice Bowl, sponsored and run by the LoCo Disc Golf Club, was comprised of a series of five smaller, socially distanced events throughout early winter. The motto of the tournament was “No Wimps, No Whiners” and participants were expected to play no matter what the weather.

Ice Bowls are sponsored by disc golf clubs around the country each year, and raise funds for non-profits that help fight hunger in the community. Since 1996, Ice Bowls have raised over $3,500,000 to fight hunger all over the United States. Since 2012, the LoCo Ice Bowl raised almost $85,000 for Loudoun Hunger Relief.

“We are incredibly proud to have placed first internationally in 2021, not in our sport, but in helping our community through fundraising to fight hunger,” said Brian Junkins, director of LoCo Disc Golf Club’s LoCo Ice Bowl, in a prepared statement. “Thank you to everyone who participated in or donated to the tournament series or the auction.”

Jennifer Montgomery, CEO of Loudoun Hunger Relief, said the organization is grateful for LoCo Disc’s efforts.

“We love the community spirit of the LoCo Ice Bowl, and deeply appreciate the support of the LoCo Disc Golf Club,” Montgomery said.

“Their assistance not only helps us get food to families in need, but also helps get the word out about hunger in Loudoun County,” she added. “We think Loudoun County is always first place in the world, but this year, the LoCo Disc Golf Club raised an unprecedented amount of funds while working around restrictions imposed by COVID. They have truly helped their neighbors eat and we are so grateful.”
