It is almost time for the 12th annual Food For Friends golf outing. The outing is the organization’s largest fundraiser and the proceeds are used to provide food to those in need throughout the year. The outing is a great way to participate with Food For Friends. Virtually every aspect of the outing raises the money needed to provide in the hands on opportunities associated with our organization. Whether you are participate in the outing, volunteering, providing sponsorships, donating prizes, or simply buying raffle tickets, You Are Making A Difference.
So, join us Tuesday September 8th and help us continue to help those who need it most. We cannot do it without you.
Before you say you don’t golf or that you don’t have time, please read on…and consider what you would be missing by not coming to the outing.
Just think: We live in a world where you can connect with someone with the click of a button. It is as easy as pressing send. People seem to be so assessable. Yet, in this world of convenience when was the last time you had a real connection with someone? When was the last time you were able to make a difference in someone’s life?
I sat down and pondered these questions. I thought to myself “sure I have connected with others recently, ” but I continued to think about it and other questions popped into my head. Questions like: How often do we send an email or text message instead of picking up the phone and making a call? How often are we too busy or uninterested to make time for others? We are quick to make excuses instead of time. My answers to these questions were less than that which I desire.
The Food for Friends annual golf outing and dinner is a simple way to both make connections with others and help those in need. It gets you away from the electronic world for awhile and gives you an opportunity to meet others who enjoy giving back to ‘our friends’. And you don’t have to be a golfer to participate. Come have dinner with us and enjoy the fun of networking with others and having fun trying to secure a raffle item!
