Goodwill Industries of Denver hosted its 12th Annual Driving for Diplomas Golf Classic at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker, CO on August 25th. This is one of my biggest events of the year and always requires a lot of work, but spending the day on a golf course isn't bad ;)
The silent auction
Each year at our tournament we offer our golfers a gift card for Oakley product.
This is our pop up shop for the morning.
The only picture of me from the day. I'm the one in the middle with neon pink running shoes.
That's a lot of sponsor signs!
Try as I might, I can't control Mother Nature, which was evident at the golf tournament. An afternoon storm rolled in and caused the golfers to quit golfing an hour early. As I was running around trying to make sure our dinner celebration would be ready early, the clubhouse was struck by lightning. The lightning caused the fire alarm to go off and we had to let everyone know to stay inside even though the alarm was blaring because it was safer inside than out.
If that wasn't exciting enough, the fire department showed up with two firetrucks and an ambulance to inspect the building. I had 6 (hot) firemen walking around the clubhouse checking out smoke detectors.
Even with the craziness at the dinner, we raised more money than last year for our youth programs!
