‘FORE’ SLF — RAINFEST 8.0 SEEKS TO BREAK RECORD: $101,500+
The eighth-annual RainFest Golf Challenge on February 25th 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! Every winter we brave the elements to raise some serious bucks for SLF (last year it was $101,500!). We experience it all: fog, cold, wind, rain, sleet. With hardy participation from 44 golfers and the generosity of 500+ donors we broke the $100k threshold for the first time.
If you would like to help us this year, here’s how RainFest rolls:
- 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 on February 25th 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 20 golfers broke the $2,500 barrier–with six over $5,000.
With the help of ProFund Fundraising Solutions, we have 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.
