A big thank you to Board member, Gregg Oonk (the essence of enthusiasm), who, with the help of Amy Devanney (also on our Board), and a planning committee brought together the community of Holland, MI to raise close to $3,500. for the children that RCF, Inc. supports. Praise!!
The event which took place at the West Ottawa Golf Club had sponsors for every hole providing food, fun, and giveaways. Sunny, blue skies prevailed as guy and gal golfers teed off at 1 pm. Sept. 14th. If you look at the photos, smiles were seen all around as everyone agreed it was a great day out for a GREAT CAUSE!!
Local restaurants, artisans, and businesses provided AMAZING prizes that were raffled off. Everything from massages, to hand-crafted jewelry, to restaurant gift certificates, video gaming equipment, flat screen t.v., bird houses, grill and accessories, a lawnmower, and a custom electric guitar...WOW!!
Other donations are coming in from those who couldn't play but wanted to let the kids know they are loved. If you missed out - it's never too late to give :)
The children learn from their teachers that Jesus loves them, but ON SEPTEMBER 14TH THESE GOOD FOLKS WERE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS....BIG TIME!!
With 20 new children added to the school, proceeds will go toward increasing the budget for daily meals, textbooks and school supplies, additional desk chairs, and Monthly Park/Sports days so the children can get out of the slums and enjoy the green grass we take for granted.
To everyone who participated, YOU nailed it! We can't thank you enough for all you've done. The children are blown away by your generosity and caring....Amazing what can happen when a caring community comes together!
May you all be blessed abundantly!
