Exelon Generation Employees Tee Off to Help the Community

Nuclear Plant’s Annual Golf Outing Raises $33,000 for Charity

Exelon Generation employees at LaSalle Generating Station recently teed up donations totaling $33,000 for four local charities at the nuclear station’s annual golf outing. The event has raised more than $200,000 for non-profit organizations in its four-year history.

More than 200 golfers participated in this year’s LaSalle Station Charity Golf Outing on Friday, Aug. 30, raising money and awareness for the following local charities: Illinois Valley Brain Injury Clubhouse, the Dani-Brandon Center for Children, Perfectly Flawed Foundation and Blessings in a Backpack.

“We are so excited about the money raised by employees at LaSalle Station,” said Tonya Carter, coordinator for Blessings in a Backpack. “Without generous donations like this, many children in our community would go without food on the weekends.”

According to Carter, 50 children can be fed for the entire school year with money raised during the golf outing. The organization sends backpacks stuffed with food home with disadvantaged children.

The golf outing is just the latest of many philanthropic and volunteer events organized by LaSalle Station employees. Other efforts this year have included a clean-up day at Camp Tuckabatchee in Ottawa, a school supply drive benefitting eight neighboring schools, and participation in the United Way of Eastern LaSalle County Labor of Love.

"LaSalle Station employees care a great deal about the community where they live and work," said John Washko, LaSalle Generating Station Site Vice President. "It means a lot that we’re able to make a difference by volunteering at and raising money for local charitable organizations."

LaSalle Generating Station is a nuclear power facility located about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, Ill. At full power, the facility’s two reactors produce more than 2,200 megawatts of carbon free electricity, enough to power 2.3 million typical homes.
