DAKOTA DUNES, S.D. - Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative, along with approximately 90 other golfers from other electric cooperatives, raised $34,615 in charity funds on July 19, 2010, during the 11th annual Touchstone Energy Midwest Golf Invitational at the Dakota Dunes Country Club in North Sioux City, S.D.
