Loving Arms would like to take this time to formally thank each and every person who contributed to our Annual Golf Tournament fundraising event that took place Saturday, September 8th, 2018. From the hosts Hidden Lake Golf Club to our hole sponsors to those who generously provided auction items and to those who participated in the day’s activities: we wholeheartedly appreciate your support!
This year we netted well over $25,000 in proceeds to the Charity… well over our already aggressive $20,000 goal. With over $6,000 going towards different levels of sponsorship and over $19,000 going towards construction of the next classroom at the Colegio Cristiano de Esperanza (Christian School of Hope), we were overwhelmed with those bidding on silent and live auction items.
Those who attended were treated with a great meal and heartwarming stories from our President Linda Coghlin as well as lovely personal accounts from some who have personally visited the poverty stricken villages of Guatemala.
Big congratulations to those who earned bragging rights with their golf-related achievements including men’s and women’s longest drive, closest to the pin, lowest score, putting contest, just to name a few. Additionally we hope those who won our big ticket auction items enjoy their trip to anywhere WestJet flies; their bottle of Ron Zacapa Centarario XO rum; wine/cheese pairings; and sporting event tickets amongst other prizes.
