Drake '3-point plays' will benefit Des Moines Parks and Recreation projects

Wellmark's 3-Point Play with Drake generates more than $10,000 in 2012

June 22, 2012

DES MOINES, Iowa (June 22, 2012) – Des Moines residents are benefiting from each three-pointer made by the Drake University Bulldogs during the 2011-12 football and basketball seasons.  


Wellmark's 3-Point Play made a donation to the Des Moines Parks and Recreation department for each field goal made during the Bulldogs' 2011 football season, and each three-point basket during both the men's and women's 2011-12 basketball seasons. In total, $10,100 has been raised through the program to date.


 "We are planning to use the funds to renovate and improve Des Moines' community parks," said Marlene Anderson, director, Des Moines Parks and Recreation. "We appreciate Wellmark's continued investment in the community."  


Wellmark will continue to make a donation to the Des Moines Parks and Recreation department for each field goal and three-point basket made during the 2012-13 Drake sports season. Five other Division I universities in Iowa and South Dakota are part of the 3-Point Play program.
