Every year we hold a variety of special events for our Leaven family: The Solano Great Race, the Golf Classic and the Annual Gala. These are incredible events that allow our most faithful supporters to join with us and celebrate success, and help us prepare for the future.
They are also a lot of fun! Every year our Golf Classic helps us kick off the summer with a bang. You may have seen photos from the event on our Facebook page, but now that the dust has settled, I wanted to share with you the impact this year’s tournament has had, and will continue to have, for all of our Leaven families.
This year’s event was incredibly popular, and tickets sold out two months in advance! It was a great day of golf, with beautiful weather and a lot of laughs. Many friends came out, including folks from Travis Air Force Base, Jelly Belly, and several members of city and Solano County Law Enforcement and government.
But most importantly, a lot of good was done for local children.
In fact, this year’s Golf Classic helped to raise more than $70,000 to help Leaven programs. This is by far our biggest, most successful Golf Classic yet and will have a huge impact on the lives of local kids over the coming year.
These funds are especially important because they help keep our programs strong. Many of our programs are funded through local business and government grants, but it’s your commitment to helping local children that help us go beyond, open new programs, and expand our services. It’s because of you that Summer Success is now available at all of our Leaven centers and that we are able to serve more children each year.
Soon we’ll be celebrating the beginning of a new school year, and with it, our Annual Gala. Tickets are going fast so if you missed the Golf Classic, or just don’t want to miss out on this upcoming event, be sure to get your tickets today. Just like the Golf Classic, the Annual Gala is a great opportunity to make a big difference in the life of a child. We hope to see you there!
We’re so thankful to everyone who chipped in to make this year’s Golf Classic the best yet. We can’t wait till next year when we can all tee-off for even more success. Together we are helping kids and communities rise.
