2nd Annual Flight for Charity Disc Golf Tournament Success
Casie and I would like to personally THANK everyone that attended or helped out with the event. We would also like to give a huge shout out to all of our Sponsors. Without the support from our Friends and Sponsors we cannot put this event together and have the success that we do. Last but not least the players that come out and show their support during the event and their generosity giving so much money with our raffles. We ended up with 110 T-shirts, 100 disc, banners and 18 Tee signs along with our Facebook Event page to honor our sponsors. Plus the players received a lot of good looking prizes. The shirts will be worn and the discs will fly so the sponsors will live on from year to year. We will also have all the banners up for next year also to continue to support all who support us.
Last year we were lucky enough for our 1st Annual Flight for Charity to raise $3,367 for Hope House of Hospitality. This year not only did we beat last years numbers, we more than doubled our donation to Hope House. At the end of the day we wrote out the check for $7,281 but with a couple last minute donations and sales our final number was $7,461 total given to Hope House of Hospitality this year. In our 2nd year we more than doubled our previous year and surpassed our personal goal!!! We are very pleased of our success and will continue to strive to be bigger and better every year. The check was signed by all the players and friends that were at the tournament and was given to Hope House Director Wanda Pitts, staff & board and contributing partners along with my wife Casie and I.
THE PLAYERS AND EVENT This year we were going to do better, so we had to think outside the box a little. We had a doubles event “Better in Pairs” for friendship, compassion and support. We also had Mixed Doubles Pro / AM divisions along with our “NEW” Division Parent and Child. Mixed Doubles division we had people that come out that never have played a tournament before or come out with their husband to play that do not normally come to events. Also they have said “They only come to our events” because they are so much fun and don’t feel the pressure of a normal event. Parent and Child Division we had 3 teams show their support and we thought it was awesome for Father/Son and Father/Daughter Teams to come out. They all played the same card together and had a blast. Not only did they all receive prizes, we gave all the kids Latitude 64º Disc Golf Bags to show our support back to them. All players in our event left with something, even if they did not place in a normal payout scheme, we always give to everyone that shows support to our cause. It’s just a fun tournament!
Thanks to everyone involved and thanks for your support. Please let me know if you would like to continue to donate for next years event. We do not have a date set as of now but we are starting to plan soon for next year. If you or someone you know wants more information on how to donate or you want to secure a spot for next year please let us know.
