The 49er Fun Park was the happening place to be on September 18th for The Friendship 100. Over 300 racers, golfers, and guests packed the park with enthusiasm for the event and for The Friendship Club program. In its 15th year, The Friendship 100 has grown to be the most important fundraiser we have, raising critical funds for our academic year program. The beauty of this event is the sheer number of supporters it generates. Racers raising funds from their friends and colleagues, golf captains urging friends to participate and donate to an important mission, major donors sponsoring the event, and a volunteer army, allow us to put on a quality, organized, and fun event for our community!
While the event grossed over $90,000, the average donation to the event is $100. THAT is community coming together and making it happen! Nearly 20% of donations come from outside of the community by way of online fundraising but the majority of funds are raised from our generous local business community and individuals. Everyone can play a role in making it happen for our girls and people committing to doing what they can do is the first step. Not everyone can or will be a major donor. It takes an army of smaller, consistent donors to provide the resources community organizations like The Friendship Club need to accomplish our missions. Thank you for being part of community building and for the generous support you provide The Friendship Club and other local organizations making our community strong. Please consider joining the more than 100 community members who have committed to being monthly donors to The Friendship Club. Consistent monthly support is critical to the ongoing stability of The Friendship Club. Monthly Matters! Call today to get signed up: (530) 265-4311.
