Branch S-524 of Garfield Hts., OH—with the support of Branch S-522 Wickliffe, OH (we went in together and each sponsored a hole and had a joint ad in their program booklet)— participated in and sponsored a “moonshine” basket (which is a huge hit at this event) to be raffled off at a charity golf outing for Jeremy Cares Inc. as one of their Matching Funds projects.
There were only 100 tickets sold at $10/each. We sold all 100 tickets and raised $1,000.00! There were over 200 people who hit the greens, enjoyed the beautiful weather, and help raise $32,000.00 that day for Jeremy Cares, Inc.! Jeremy, himself, who is a cancer survivor, was there. Jeremy and everyone who took part in the golf outing are giving HOPE to those with pediatric cancer, their siblings and families. Jeremy wants all of them to know that somebody CARES and there is HOPE!
As posted on the Facebook page of Jeremy Cares, Inc. “The FCSLA not only donated the booze bucket for our raffle, but these ladies matched what we raised with another $600 on top of that! And one of them was also the lucky winner of our 50/50 and took home $1,000. See….it does ‘pay to pay it FORE-ward!’ You got to love karma. Thank you and congratulations!”
Branches S-524 & S-522 want to THANK our FCSLA Agent Maryann Ruben for getting us involved with this AWESOME Charity. For more information on Jeremy Cares check out their website www.jeremycares.org. To see photos from the event, visit the FCSLA Cleveland District photo gallery.
