Two weeks ago, we hosted our first ever golf event. As when doing anything for the first time, it was a learning process for us and we feel incredibly grateful to all of our sponsors, participants and volunteers for making this inaugural event a success! Not only did we have a great time with everyone who attended, but we raised over $10,000 for our scholars. Of this money raised, $2,950 went directly to our Van Replacement Fund (continued here), which was started by a $10,000 grant from Movement Mortgage of which we were fortunate enough to be the recipients. It is events such as this one that allow us to continue to provide free individualized academic tutoring, intensive squash instruction and service learning opportunities to our scholars. We have our first class of freshmen in the program this year and are also looking to grow by nearly 20%. The funds raised at SUS events throughout the year are those that continue to allow us to grow. Our growth means more opportunities for a greater number of students in the Seattle area, and for that we thank you!
We are excited to see everyone back again next year, with a friend, co-worker or two!
We would also like to thank our Corporate Sponsor, Servco Pacific Insurance for their support. And our Hole Sponsors who helped to make this inaugural event a great one!
