Coach's Corner: 
How parents can help prepare participants for success

If you read our previous three articles about when your child should move up to the next level in The First Tee, you should have a clearer picture of the requirements your participants must meet to succeed at the various First Tee levels and move to the next. 

Now we hope to tell you how you can help us help them meet these requirements--even if you don't play golf yourself!

And the winners are...

On November 13, board members and friends gathered at Fairway Hills for an annual tradition in mid-November: the drawing of the Pebble Beach raffle winner and cash prize winners. Just hours before, Coach Jim had emailed the board of directors to let them know that nearly every ticket had sold. Board member R.L. Gladden replied back, generously offering to purchase any remaining tickets. It turned out that wouldn't be necessary, as the tickets sold in the meantime -- and as fate would have it, when the winning ticket was drawn, it was none other than Mr. Gladden's!

We also want congratulate the winners of the cash prizes:

$400: Chris Grier and Marco DePalma
$100: Sharon Kavanagh 
$100: Tom Mahler
$100: Herb Moltzan

Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets and sold them, especially our hard-working board members who went above and beyond in their efforts to help us reach our goal of selling all 400 tickets for the first time in our history. In total, the raffle raised approximately $25,000 in proceeds that will go directly to helping keep our youth programs affordable, accessible and high-quality.

Giving Tuesday 2017

After you've enjoyed Thanksgiving and the flurry of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, we hope you'll consider participating in #GivingTuesday, a national day of generosity on November 28. What better way to kick off the holiday giving season than by making a gift of time, talent or treasure to your favorite youth development organization? Stay tuned for more details on the 28th, and in the meantime, we wish you the very happiest Thanksgiving. We are thankful to count you as part of our community.
