Alto-Shaam Celebrates a Decade of Funding Cancer Research


MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. — When Alto-Shaam’s founder, Jerry Maahs passed away from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2006, the company began planning a way to honour his memory. For the past decade, the Jerry Maahs Memorial Golf Outing has been an outlet to celebrate Maahs’ life while raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Wisconsin Chapter. Through a research grant, the event has raised critical funds to support cancer research and advance treatments for the disease.

To date, the golf outing and a matching donation from Alto-Shaam have raised $775,000 and earned a spot as the largest third-party fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in the state of Wisconsin.

“We are proud of the success of this event and the good it has accomplished,” says Steve Maahs, Alto-Shaam president and Chief Operating Officer. “We hope our contribution over the years has helped take the burden of this diagnosis off others. We’ve always felt it was a fitting way to honour Jerry and we thank the many participants and volunteers who have contributed to this event’s success over the years.”
