The Arizona chapter of GNG, like every nonprofit organization, needs funds in order to carry on our mission of providing free guitars and lessons to foster & adopted kids, at-risk youth, and other underserved kids. For 2015 we realized that we needed to do something big in order to raise as much money in the most efficient way possible. So, we decided to gather up some great GNG volunteers and supporters and play 100 holes of golf!
Each participant set out with a goal to raise as many dollars as they could for every hole of golf they played. In the end, 17 golf participants attracted donations from more than 220 donors for a total of just over $28,000! Amazing!
Here’s our incredible group of volunteers.
From L to R: Leo Lambert, Brandon Kelly, Jack Wilson, Tammie Evans, Marc Taylor, Colin Canavan, Dan Busse, Chris Price, Mike Johnson, Melinda Frankel, JT Shoaf, Karen Bird, Ryan Bird, Pablo Rodriguez, BethAnne Countrymen, Ryan Countrymen, and RJ Kohlmeyer
We were also able to get Alice Cooper’s autograph on a couple of guitars that were donated to us, which we then raffled off to a couple of our highest performing participants.
These two guitars were autographed by none other than Alice Cooper! They were raffled off to those that raised the most money
This was an absolutely astounding showing from our participants and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support. Thanks to everyone who participated or donated. This powers our program for some time to come!
