2022 Dates: Feb 28 (SGC) and Mar 5 (TopGolf)

RainFest 10th Anniversary an Ace!

Despite the challenges of the pandemic year — and an historic Ice Storm on President’s Day — RainFest 10.0 went into the record books as the most successful ever.  “TheTraditionalists” gathered at Salem Golf Club on February 22 and “The TopGolfers” drove to Hillsboro on February 27 … between these “two golf events under one RainFest umbrella” we were blessed raise $118,125 – a new course record!  This support equips SLF to help 50+ partnerships that serve kids, families, schools and neighborhoods, especially those most in need.

The RainFest method is proven: when golfers self-sponsor for (at least) $100 and then ask 25-30 friends to match that amount, they can easily raise $1,000 (the minimum) and go beyond the ultimate of $2,500–this year a total of 24 golfers reached this seemingly impossible goal!  (In fact, 11 golfers were over $4,000.)

We’ve created a fancy website for RainFest and it’s the key to our success.  It’s the easy-to-use place where golfers enter their sponsors’ pledge information. The goal is to get pledges from folks you know: friends, family, colleagues, associates.  Our website sends 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.

We’re already planning for RainFest 11.0 — Monday, February 28 and Saturday, March 5, 2022!  Tee it up with us, FORE!
