This week, we were able to reach our goal of pairing children with sponsors through the Ready, Set School! Backpack Program. Each student will get a backpack with grade appropriate school supplies, clothing, and other necessities to begin the school year.
A fun morning of miniature golf, for nearly 80 players, turned into $30,500 raised to support IFCS, the largest non-sectarian, social-services agency serving the northern Douglas and unincorporated Arapahoe counties. These funds will help families in need, in those communities, put food on the table and keep the lights on.
Teams are forming now for the 2015 Puttin’ On the Green Mini-Golf Friend-Raiser. This unique event brings together community supporters while playing a fun round of miniature golf. We invite you to join us as we Drive to End Hunger on June 20, 2015 at Colorado Journey. Sign up today by clicking here and get ready to have a fun time! Read More
