20190727 Charity Fun Run
Charity Fun Run
Our Charity Fun Run was held on a hot, sunny day the last Saturday of July. We started at the OD Arcade. Donna Williams and Cindy Day signed all 140 players in at the desk and then they proceeded over to the table to draw their first card.
Many thanks to all our participating clubs., OD Arcade, Saville’s on Second, 810 Bowling, Duck’s and Fat Harold’s. Not only did they open their doors to us with great service and smiles, each venue donated prizes to be given away at our raffles. We also want to thank Allstate Insurance, Graham’s Golf Carts, Al Cosgrove and Navajo Sunglasses for raffle prizes.
After everything was counted, our winner was Sonia Brooks with the most points. Lamar Vaughn came in second and Kathy McCoy has the lowest points. Billy Powell and Sandy Cummings did a great job selling 50/50 tickets and our winner, Justin Owens, took home $644.00.
This event could not have happened without all of our volunteers. Many thanks to: Nancy Sook, John Barringer, Lou Garrenton, Dickie Garrenton, Larry Jones, Terry McCoy, Kathy McCoy, Jessie Becker, Billie Reitz, Bill Bacon, Joan Bacon, Cindy Day, Tim Webb, Paula Webb, Billy Powell. Tina Tomberlin, and Paulette Miller.
After everything was finished, we were able to donate $2,089 to the Junior Shag Dance Team. Their next competition is the US Open Swing Dance Championship in California in November. We wish them the best of luck and thank them for keeping the dance flame going!
