On Monday, September 10thRipple Ministries sponsored our first major fundraiser, The Annual Ripple Ministries Golf Classic at Mill Creek CC. It was a great time of friendly golf competition between 7 foursomes followed by a yummy dinner, the lovely sounds of Kelsey Keogh Cate. The end result was a good time had and over $10,000 raised for our support of the teen drop-in center and our future program plans.
The event’s fundraising efforts were advanced by generous donations by several business owners that either sponsored a hole or just gave an extra donation benevolently. These generous donors deserve another mention:
Dr Tracy Quickstad, Clearview Family Dentistry. Fule Golf Snacks
The Snohomish UPS Store Mike Wehrman, UBS Capstone Wealth Management
Mark Pfeil, Prostar Insurance Harvey Development LLC
Raen Aero LLC Nothwest Flying Service
Harvey Airfield Skydive Snohomish
David and Jeanine San Clamente-Thompson Freemont Dock Company
Thanks to these generous donors we have been able to contribute to the food supplies and have set up a monthly donation for future meals.
We now have the funds needed to prepare for and schedule out first youth media class in January. Over the next weeks our instructors will be completing the syllabus and we will be visiting a program in San Diego that models many of the aspects we hope to build into our program. Watch in the weeks ahead for more updates on our progress and introduce you to our instructors.
Thank you again for all the support that has made our progress possible!
