Mary reported that this year we combined golf and bridge to form a brilliant idea to host a bridge and golf outing side by side. The concept was a success and the day went off perfectly. The event raised $9,651.06 for the Clinic and an additional $1,045 to be used to purchase children’s coats, hats and mittens that will be donated to the annual coat drive.
In attendance for the event included 80 golfers, 20 bridge players and 10 additional women for lunch all together to help us celebrate our 60th anniversary celebration.
• We sold 66 mulligans (brain child of Susan Jakubiec and Judy Green)
• We sold 24 Hit My Drive Coupons
• We sold 37 Baby Clothes and 27 Children’s Coats (Thanks to the rejuvenation efforts of Lynda, Nancy and Jayne Miller’s sales execution.)
• We sold 20 Luminaria Gift Sets (thank you Kathy McKenna for that suggestions and thanks to Rosanne and her helpers for providing the beautifully wrapped sets).
• And last but not least, we sold 18 Planters Palette Gift Certificates under Sharon Adams’ watchful eye.
