Golf and Walk A Big Success
By Teri Burch, Board President
I would like to thank the entire board, staff, and volunteers for their help on making the 4th Annual Golf/Walk event a success. Your time, talents, resources, contributions and presence are invaluable and contribute to our ongoing efforts. When all pledges come in, we are anticipating a net of $15,000.00. This was no small feat.
All of the board members helped in one way or another. Three of us began planning the event in February of 2015. Randall Henry had contacts with golf courses and he began investigating courses and pinning down a date. He also brought in new technology with Ocular Logic and an online registration site for both golfers and walkers. Brian Wright helped to tweak the registration process to fit FPNI website and we were off. Randall also had Scratch Hub available for golfers, another technology we have never used. He secured the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course for our event Andy Paroni completed the sponsor packets to send out to potential sponsors and emailed the entire board a copy. Emails and texts were flying. As registrations began coming in on EventBrite, Mary Robinette kept track of participants and payments. Once a week, she sent out a report. Mike Irwin, Andy Paroni, Cindy Wood, and I went to a Golf Show; CdA Business Fair and the Post Falls Business Fair to promote the event. It is a huge task to get everything done for a large event and all the board members are busy people. But everything got done. We got sponsors for the event, prizes, and silent auction items. We ordered food, met with the resort, advertised the event; organized volunteers, organized the silent auction, organized walkers, got “swag” together to put in bags, organized golfers, got a credit card machine and a volunteer to run the machine. We donated time, laughter, tears, money, and in-kind items. Who are we? We are the board: Teri Burch, Randall Henry; Mary Robinette; Mike Irwin; Andy Paroni; Tim Frahm; Theresa Gibbons; and Evelyn Gaherty. We are the staff: Cindy Wood and Mary Beth Jorgensen. We are the volunteers: Brian Wright, Ali Miller, Tina Irwin; Heather Huber; Freda Campbell (and family); Kelly Peterson; and Lauren Clars. We are here to give hope.help.home
