You can stick a fork in the 2019 version of the Golf Cart Fundraiser, because it is done.  It was a record-breaking year.  We have never tried to sell 3,200 tickets, we have never sold 3,200 tickets, and they were all sold by the end of SOS Parade Day way back in April.

Once again, a great big thank you to our volunteers who gave their time to support the Club, McMillan’s for the use of their parking lot, and Lulu at Fat Harold’s for inviting us indoors to sell tickets during Winter SOS.  Also, many thanks to Mike Graham at Graham’s Golf Cars for selling tickets and storing the cart all year.  Please support businesses that support us.

The drawing was held on Saturday 9/21/2019 at Fat Harold’s parking lot. The drawing was held on a Saturday for the first time and we had a great turn out. We have never seen so many fingers and toes crossed.  And the winner was, Joanne Natt of North Myrtle Beach.  Needless to say, she was extremely excited as were her ODSC friends.

Lesson learned; buy your tickets early in 2020!

Hello to our valued volunteers,

A BIG THANK YOU!!!!!

No, we are not contacting you to ask you to volunteer again. We are contacting you to say, that because of your incredible efforts, we have sold all of our tickets for 2019!  Yes, even though the Board increased the amount of tickets to 3,200, you did it!  From Mid-Winter SOS, St.Patty’s Day, and Spring SOS, you were all terrific. We will be depositing over $16,000 for the Club (including some small contributions.)  We know you would have rather enjoyed more time watching parades or enjoying SOS, and we know that selling, took some of you out of your comfort zone.  This makes all of you even more special.  While at times it is not easy getting people to volunteer, many of you volunteered for more than one shift and more than one event, and we sure appreciated it.  

Some of you volunteered as a group so we’re missing their email address.  Please forward this email to them. 

Enjoy your summer, especially knowing you will not be receiving any more emails from us!

Take care, and again… THANK YOU!

 

20190316 St Patricks Day Golf Cart Ticket Sales

St. Patrick’s Day Golf Cart Ticket Sales

The Golf Cart Committee would like to openly acknowledge the following people who sold tickets at the St. Partrick’s Day Parade and Festival. The day began at 6:15am to set up and decorate the booth. The day ended at 5:00pm. Despite battling the chilly temperatures, a steady wind, and an overdose of pollen, our volunteers helped sell over 750 tickets for the day. By far, the largest single day ticket sales we have had. It was an incredible group effort. We would like to thank the following people who gave their all and put us way ahead of our YTD sales goal.

20190216 Oyster Roast Golf Cart Fundraiser

Oyster Roast Golf Cart Fundraiser

by

Monica and Jim Palmieri

The 2019 Golf Cart Fundraiser is off and running.  In 2018, we were given 3,000 tickets to sell.  Even though it has never been done before, (NBDB) we sold out.  This was a combined effort of all of our great volunteers.  It was a super effort, even though we lost 2 days of Spring SOS due to storms and all of Fall SOS due to a hurricane.  But enough of 2018.  This year, the Board has decided to increase the number of tickets to 3,200.  Because we were able to get the cart and the tickets earlier this year, we have already sold 372 tickets.  A huge event for us this year was the brunch.  With the purchase of 4 tickets, you were entered to win a world-famous carrot cake baked by Lori Setzer.  We had 27 entries. Because of the success of this event, we are doubling down at this year’s Oyster Roast.  If you buy 4 golf cart tickets, you will be entered to win one of two cakes; a carrot cake or a strawberry cake.

Remember, the Golf Cart Fundraiser helps pay for all of our events (Brunches, Oyster Roast, Christmas Dinner etc.).  So please stop and see us at the Roast, buy 4 tickets, and be entered to win one of the cakes.  If you can’t make the roast, we will be selling tickets at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  If every member would buy just one ticket, we would be 25% sold. 

Finally, we hear all the time that “I don’t need a golf cart”. Please know that we have people lined up to buy it from you. It is a fully loaded cart with a retail value of $5,500.

 Looking forward to seeing everyone.
