Golf Marathon for Greg’s School

It’s that time of year again. Children everywhere are preparing for back to school. This year, we’ll be participating as we get ready to send Greg off to Kindergarten! Although I know I will miss the little guy, this is an exciting time for our family!

Greg will be attending Heritage Oak Christian School. Heritage Oak is a small school, and Greg will be one of 3 Kindergartners this year! Because of their size, Heritage Oak depends on fundraising through out the year to continue it’s daily operation. Typically, 10% of fundraising covers operating costs and the remainder is used to accomplish other goals. This year, the school hopes to add after-school programs and athletic field.

This being our first year at Heritage Oak, we are eager to do our part during for the Annual Golf Marathon Fundraiser! Each year, the school raises around $25,000 during the Golf Marathon! That would go a long way towards an athletic field!

We would be deeply appreciate your support as we endure 100 holes of golf. Because Heritage Oaks’ focus on community, we raise funds for our school as a family. Even grandparents have gotten involved (hint, hint!) This allows our family to work together and it gives Greg the opportunity to take responsibility for the greater good of his school. Our family will join others on October 23, 2008 to hit 100 holes of miniature golf!

You can help by sponsoring our family! Can you pledge $.25 per hole? $.50? More? You will not be asked to pay your pledge until after the marathon on 10/23/08. However, if you would like to send a check sooner, please make it out to “Heritage Oak School”. Remember, this is tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt after the event.

I cannot begin to tell you how much this little school appreciates what you’re doing by sponsoring our family! You’re also helping the cutest little kindergartner you know shine his first year!

 

Thank you again for your consideration and support! And pray for us!! Taking a 5, 3 and 1 year old for 100 holes of miniature golf won’t be as easy as it sounds!  Email me at  tokaren@bak.rr.com if you would like to help by sponsoring our family.  THANK YOU!!
