We all had a blast meeting members and guests at our first social event for the year on June 17 at Moon Golf in Melbourne, FL. Moon Golf provided their simulators with lessons by staff and a CTP contest, and a putting contest, complete with gift certificate prizes. And they gave us all discounts on merchandise purchases. The chapter provided beverages and snacks and much socializing.
One of the “funnest” things we were able to coordinate at the very last minute was putting out the word the day before the event to the chapter to bring in their unwanted golf equipment for use by a new high school girls golf team in Lakeland, FL. There are 16 girls signed up to play. Our chapter Finance director Cathy Mulqueen, learned of the school and their desperate need for equipment thru another golf event, and she and Amanda Mitskevich (social media/web) and Pam Brockmeyer (Cocoa High girls golf coach) cooked up a plan to see what our chapter could do to help, We thought of it like a food or toy drive, but instead of bringing in cans or toys to donate when attending an event, we asked members to bring in equipment. We called it “Toys for Tots” meet “Golf Fore Girls.” And what a generous group of ladies we have in this chapter!! Really amazing and wonderful equipment and supplies were donated.
