‘FORE’ SLF — RAINFEST RAISES A RECORD $90,135
The seventh-annual RainFest Golf Challenge will benefit Salem Leadership Foundation (SLF) and our mission to help Salem-Keizer become the healthiest community in Oregon: truly the City of Shalom. Kids, families, neighborhoods … healthy!
Golf in February? Yep! We are inviting you to to play 18 holes with us on Monday, February 26, and raise some serious bucks for SLF (last year it was $90,100!). It may rain, the wind may howl … bring it on – FORE! With hardy participation from 40-44 golfers, we can raise $100,000 (or more!) in the next several weeks to support SLF and our 50+ neighborhood partners. We also have a great Tee-Off Dinner at Roberts Crossing in early February, and a Champions Wine Dinner for those raising $2,500+ in pledges.
Here is what each “RainFest Champion” commits to:
- Put Monday, February 26th, on your calender to play 18 holes at historic Salem Golf Club. No matter what the weather, we’ll keep you warm, well-fed, and moving around the course. Be there by 9:30, done by 3:30 p.m. Lots of great prizes and laughs.
- Sponsor yourself for at least $100 (can be more), and …
- Give your best effort to make 25-40 contacts and strive for $2,500 in pledges. This is easier than you think, as people will be more than happy to support you in your valiant “wind-and-rain” endurance to support SLF. Last year 16 raised $2,500 or more and five were over $5,000.
We’ve created a website for RainFest and it’s the key to our success. It’s the easy-to-use place where you enter your sponsors’ pledge information. The goal is to get pledges from folks you know: friends, family, colleagues, associates. Our web site will send them a thank-you note, a tax-deductible letter, and details on how/where they can send their sponsorship amounts. Easy as a tap-in putt.
