Pebble Beach Raffle: A Sold Out Success   

On November 12, 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. As we announced last week, the big winner of the all-expenses paid trip was  Fred Yoo of Turf Valley.  We also want congratulate the winners of the cash prizes:

$400: Mark Giler
$100: Greg Peel  
$100: R.L. Gladden 
$100: Lonnie Robbins 

Special thanks to R.L. Gladden and Lonnie Robbins who generously donated their winnings back to The First Tee of Howard County.

Thank you to everyone who purchased and sold raffle tickets! For the second year in a row, all 400 tickets were sold, which means that approximately $25,000 in proceeds will benefit our youth programs. We are so grateful to each of you for helping keep our programs affordable, high-quality and accessible to children throughout Howard County.

Giving Tuesday 

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 27, 2018. 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 27th, and in the meantime, we wish you the very happiest Thanksgiving. We are thankful to count you as part of our community.
