Alexandria Industries is a manufacturer with locations in Minnesota, Indiana, and Texas. The employees have amazing passion to help others! Whether its lending a hand during their work day, or contributing funds for someone in need in their community, they answer the call. This passion is easy to see when it involves those touched by cancer.
For six months every year, Alexandria Industries employees raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). In 2019, the ACS recognized us as the top fundraising team in Minnesota, the second highest fundraiser in the region (13 states) and the 33rd highest fundraising team in the country. In the last two years, we have raised and donated more than $160,000 to help find a cure for cancer.
Our first fishing tournament, in 2007, began with 112 participants and helped us raise $620. Each year, the event has grown. Last year, our 13th year, 1,231 people, including 208 kids (12 & under), participated in the Fishing for the Cure tournament. Together, we raised $60,000!
All of the proceeds raised are donated to the ACS Relay For Life of Douglas County. In total, our ice fishing tournament has donated over $230,000, in the fight against cancer.
