Our 8th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and Dinner Auction is fast approaching! We have been busy gathering sponsorships, donations, and items for this great event. In addition to our business partners, we raise a significant amount of our annual giving budget every summer between our golf tournament and auction at Newcastle Golf Club.
May 20th, we had over 50 volunteers that descended upon board member Barry and wife Joan Horn’s home to donate, sort, pack, and organize dozens of items for our gift baskets, a highlight of our silent auction. Items range from chocolates, wine, coffee, beauty supplies, to tickets to local events, sporting goods, and so much more.
We currently have over $5,000 in gift basket items and our goal is to double that! Our silent auction is consistently one of the most fun, creative, and profitable parts of this annual event, and we expect this year’s event to be the best ever!
This year’s theme is “Touching Hearts” and we are still looking for your support in gathering gifts and donations that can make up another 28 gift baskets. You can bring your donated items, wrapped or unwrapped to any of our weekly breakfast gatherings, or email Christina@libertyroadfoundation.org to make other arrangements. We will let each of our guests know how grateful we are for your support in our auction literature and invite you to be a big part.
As a reminder, the event is August 14, 2012 and more information can be found at http://www.lrfcharityevent.com/.
