My twelve year old Autism-diagnosed son, Jared, is participating in the Delta Life Skills ‘Summer Fun Program’ this year. Summer Fun is a unique six week initiative that enhances the social experiences for 50-60 children and young adults with special challenges and their families, and provides the opportunity to learn a broad range of basic life skills integral to a quality of life which they otherwise may not have had. It costs around $4,500 per child to run Summer Fun – parents are only required to pay $1,000 of that amount. The remainder of the money comes from fundraising, and goes entirely to running the program and providing one-to-one support for every participant.
The first fundraising opportunity this year is a Masters Golf Pool.
Run by the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen, the Summer Fun kids receive 50% of Pool sales up to 49 entries and once reaching 50 entries, 2/3’s of the revenue.
Here’s how to enter the Masters Pool:
Entries are made online at http://www.rotarymasters.ca
One entry is $30, Two entries is $50 and Five entries is $100.
The Grand Prize is $5000 – $8000 in Total Prizes.
ENTRY DEADLINE IS MIDNIGHT APRIL 9, 2014.
PLEASE SELECT ” DELTA LIFE SKILLS ” AS THE SELLER.
THEN SELECT “JARED GROTH” AS THE REFERRER.
My personal goal as parent is to achieve $1,000 worth of pool entries. If so inclined, I encourage you to share this fundraiser info with friends, family and co-workers. Include the website http://www.deltalifeskills.net so they can get to know this wonderful not-for-profit as well.
By the way, last year’s Masters Pool $5,000 winner was a friend of a parent – she does not play golf, watch golf or follow golf. Clearly, the less you know about the field and golf in general, the better.
Good luck and thanks for supporting my boy and a great cause!
