Mayor's Golf Classic Hits the Mark!

A great day of golf and camaraderie was enjoyed by 144 golfers at Frisco Family Services’ 16th Annual Mayor’s Golf Classic on Monday, June 18, 2018, at Stonebriar Country Club, presented by Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - Frisco.

John Keating, Frisco’s Deputy Mayor Pro Tem was joined on the course by local community members and business leaders.

A huge thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers who helped make our tournament an exciting and successful fundraising event, to help our neighbors in crisis in our Frisco and Frisco ISD community.

Golfers weren't the only ones CARING on the green ...
Some of our youngest supporters, that are a part of our Little Hands volunteer program hosted a Lemonade Stand Fundraiser right on the course at our Mayor's Golf Classic!

Proud Little Hands themselves provided a moment of refreshment to our golfers in exchange for a donation to Frisco Family Services Back2School Program. 
Way to go Little Hands!

What is our Back2School Program?
This critical program, taking place on August 6th , provides students with a great start to the new school year with a new backpack, the required school supplies, new clothes, new shoes, haircuts, vision screenings and more.

How YOU can help

Board of Directors Spotlight - Robert Chase
We would like to take a moment to recognize a member of our very valuable Board of Directors, Robert Chase – Market President at BB&T Bank, and Frisco Family Services Board Treasurer.
 
What excites Robert most about being a part of Frisco Family Services is “being able to help someone at their point of need, both directly and through helping them sign up for the various services, which can keep someone in their home and prevent a client from falling into the vicious cycle of poverty.”
 
With a background in sales and sales leadership, Robert enjoys using his experience and skill sets to provide guidance to help Frisco Family Services meet their fundraising goals. When he is not working on personal development, he enjoys spending time with his wife, traveling, running, hiking, fishing, and confesses that he has “ an unhealthy relationship with Costco as a member and shareholder ”.
 
Stealing a title from a famous blog post, if Robert were ever to write a book, the title would be “The Shockingly Simple Math of Early Retirement”. The best advice Robert has ever received is
“Work hard, spend less than you make, exercise more days than you don’t, and watch what you eat. Things will work out okay if you do that every week.” – Jack Wranek (Grandfather)
 
We treasure each and every Board member, and are so grateful for their time and talents dedicated to ensuring the success of our clients and building a caring community.
At the Root of our Community Garden
Meet Dan Bennett:
Community Gardener & Volunteer
With over 25 years of experience in the landscape and horticulture industry, Dan passes on his knowledge to different volunteer groups at Frisco Family Services’ Community Garden.

Dan believes "it’s worthwhile to get people to understand how much work actually goes into producing what we eat so we can appreciate what we so easily put on our own tables. The Community Garden is important because it puts fresh fruits and vegetables directly into the hands of those who need it."

Whether you're an expert gardener like Dan, or just want to try something new that supports your very own community, get involved with Frisco Family Services' Community Garden TODAY!
