Guest Blogger: Tommy Thompson- Tee Off Fore Missions
On September 15, we had our 17th Tee Off Fore Missions golf benefit. The Lord blessed us again with a beautiful day and very generous supporters.
We had 148 golfers, 59 hole sponsors, and more than 100 individuals and entities that otherwise supported the event. Some donated items to be used as flag and door prizes or in the auctions and others volunteered the day of the event. We will have net proceeds of $40,300 and that brings our 17-event total to $619,600.
The net proceeds will be donated to 20 different mission activities including: Assurance Women’s Center, Abide Network, Empty Tomb, Hope Center, Step Out and Three Cord Ministries to name a few.
Our committee this year included: my wife Melodee, my daughter Jenny, Neil and Jo Fortkamp, Gary and Stacy Craft, Brian Frevert, Kathy Rosene, Jeanne Long and Carolyn Hall. Thanks to them for helping make this event a big success.
If you played golf in the event or otherwise supported it, thanks much. If you did not but want to make a financial contribution now, trust me it is not too late.
Next year’s event will be on September 14, 2015 at Tiburon Golf Club.
