Today is the last day to register for the early bird pricing on The 8th Annual Scramble for the Kids. Want to know why I think you should come golf? Or Volunteer? Or Donate? Here are the top 10 reasons I love the Scramble for the Kids
10. Our Volunteers.
I love the team of people who come out every year to run contests, greet golfers, haul water and generally cheer on the play. I love watching my kids and my friend’s kids learn that there is no better fun than helping others.
9. Nifty T-Shirts and Signs and Awards.
I love the fact we run a quality tournament and that its all donated or underwritten by sponsors. I love Anderson Signs for their annual donation of our signage. I love Liberty Bible Church for massive quantities of printing and advertising and t-shirts. I love my company for paper and pencils and staples and such. I love Woodin’ You for beautiful awards. All of those donations means more for kids.
8. Great Prizes.
Weekends in Sun River. Fishing Trips. Rounds of Golf. Massage. Raffle and Contests and its all donated.
7. Fun Contests.
Closest to the Pin. Happy Gilmore. Long Drive. We have a great time.
6 . Great Golf
18 holes at Camas Meadows Golf Course. Best Ball Scramble. Throws and String and all the bells and whistles. You can’t golf? Its a Scramble people – just for fun – grab a ringer and come out!
5. Generous Sponsors
Oh My Goodness. I love Peace Health Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center. I love Tri-Tech Heating and Cooling. I love Les Schwab Tire Centers. Wade Au at State Farm. Simple Lawns. O’Ryan Industries. Bonnie Irwin at Real Living. Stan Berkey at Northwest Funding Group. The Holt Group. Rush Process. And the 100 other hole sponsors and prize sponsors and raffle donors. You inspire me.
I love watching a church partner with a whole pile of local businesses and individuals to help vulnerable kids. Community together. It’s what is right about our world.
3. Open House Ministries.
I love that this year proceeds from the Scramble for the Kids are going to help purchase gym equipment for the new facility at Open House Ministries. There is something so right about a day of golf that helps homeless kids play ball. Fun can heal.
2. Foster Kids through Bridge the Gap
Proceeds from this year’s tournament will help foster kids here in Clark County with back to school fees. So golfers will help foster kids play fall sports. Or rent band instruments. Buy new shoes. I really love golf.
1. This Baby.
This beautiful child was the first baby born at the Ndengera Clinic in Gisenyi, Rwanda. She was born last night. She is why I love golf. For the past 8 years the Scramble for the Kids has provided support to the Ndengera Clinic, Ndengera School, clean water well and general support to at risk children in Rwanda. This baby girl had a safe place to come into the world because of golf. It really does not get better than that.
So sign up. Come golf. Donate. Never been a better reason to golf. Or ten reasons.
