Well, another Marathon has come and gone! 100 holes of golf were completed last Monday by twenty golfers and they have survived to tell about it, once again. It was an extraordinarily beautiful day for our 9th annual edition of this event and we are pleased with the results.
The combined effort of our golfers, along with the support of sixteen local businesses, brought in over $51,000 in contributions and pledges. The exciting part is that after expenses for the event are removed those monies will go directly towards the program ministries of The Firs and, in particular, Firwood, Fircreek and After School Adventure. As a result this will, once again, be a huge boost in our efforts to provide a quality, life-changing programs and keep them affordable for all.
