Our community support often means supporting fundraising events that leverage our monies. By making gifts that encourage others to participate and also make gifts. For instance make a challenge matching gift to the Home’s First fundraising Breakfast – matching other donor’s gifts or the sponsorship of the Hawks Prairie Rotary Foundation Golf Tournament Hole in One Contest at the annual golf fundraiser (four holes each featuring a $10,000 prize). The good folks at Strader Hallett PS Certified Public Accountants signed up for a foursome – one partner, two staff members and a client attended. Jerry Johnson, their client actually hit a hole in one!!!! What an awesome day it was for everyone involved – the Rotary raised funds for local projects, Strader Hallett has a client for life, Jerry has some taxes to pay and then can enjoy the proceeds and Olympic Rentals had the pleasure of giving out a hole in one prize the few sponsors ever get to see!
We believe in giving back to our community – the stronger the fabric of our community, the healthier places we have to live, the more healthy our investments become and so the circle goes. Plus it is just the right thing to do. . . These are a few of the organizations that we support through direct monetary gifts and/or gifts of time.
