Official Announcement Newsletter of the Salem Angels Golfathon
Sept 25,2021 Topgolf @ Hillsboro, OR
Announcing the inaugural FORE! Foster Community Support Golfathon, benefitting Salem Angels (SA) and our mission to walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship.
This may sound crazy (and you may think we’re nuts) but WE NEED YOU to smash 100 golf balls with us on Sept 25, 2021 at Topgolf in Hillsboro. With nominal participation from 25 or more volunteers, we can raise $50,000 or more in the next several weeks to support the SA mission.
We have made a commitment, and now WE NEED YOU. Right now we are putting together our SA Golfathon Team and we want you on it. We’re inviting you to participate in a KEY volunteer position. Each volunteer has a very limited, yet well defined, responsibility.
We promise, this won’t take much of your time. We need volunteers who will commit to following the instructions of this proven fundraising program and support our children, youth and families in the foster community. You may even win some great prizes!
You can be a FORE! Foster Community Support Golfathon Participant.Here is what you agree to commit to:
Show up on Saturday, Sept 25 at 9:45 am (brunch inc.) at Topgolf in Hillsboro, OR. You'll be on a team of 4 people in your own climate-controlled bay, and you will all smash 100 golf balls in 3 hours. It’s lots of fun even for non-golfers!
Sponsor yourself for at least $100, but please consider more as some people will match your pledge.
Give your ultimate effort to raise a minimum $2,500 (or $1,000 ‘first-timer’ option) from your spheres of influence. This is easy as people will want to support you in your commitment to help Salem Angels support their families. This can be done in about 5 total hours and we will show you how.
We’re looking for 6 Champions to serve as Team Captains to accomplish the above 1 – 2 – 3 and put together a team of four fundraisers (including yourself).
People give to People. All you have to do is ASK for help in this all-out endeavor for SA and our experience shows that about 8 of 10 will pledge you to support the cause.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: · What if I don’t golf? No problem! Topgolf is fantastic and fun for beginners. (Check out the Topgolf experience HERE and see for yourself). · What if I can’t golf or be there on Sept 25? Again no problem! Simply be a Non-Golfing Participant and follow the same plan, then you or we will get a proxy golfer to smash golf balls for you (let us know!). · How is this organized? This is a super, well-organized and fun campaign. The SA FORE! Foster Community Support Golfathon website is the key to our success - where you enter your sponsor’s pledge information. You don’t have to collect any money. Just get pledges from those you know (your friends, family, neighbors, associates, etc.) and the site will send them a big thank you email, letter with receipt for their tax-deductible donation, and details for paying their pledge.
