You all helped us net more than $34,000 to fund the urgent, unmet needs of our community’s most vulnerable kiddos. Ah-mazing!
Big thank you goes to Cesar Quintanilla, Board Chair; Kyle Robertson, Board Member and Golf Committee Chair; the entire For Kids Foundation Board of Directors (Rena Zatica, Lindsey York, Tayona Tate, Mike Norman, Megan Evans, Michelle Harrington, Fabby Franco, Janell Garcia, Mat Anderson, and Allie Berkowitz); and our volunteers for all the hours and hard work it took to bring such a fun event to our community.
Now, mark your calendars for an even bigger and better (is that even possible?) event Friday, May 12, 2023, again at Red Hawk Golf and Resort. Stay tuned for details! Interested sponsors/teams are encouraged to email me at email@example.com or call 775-741-5231 to reserve their spot now.
Lastly, do you know why golfers wear two pair of pants? It’s in case they get a hole in one.
