May 7th, 2012, brought us our annual opportunity to not only raise money to support The Next Stop, but also to enjoy the celebration! We had a record 129 golfers this year, and although play had to be temporarily suspended due to lightening in the area, they all had a great time. Dinner guests began arriving around 5:30 and while enjoying a glass of wine, they browsed around and bid on outstanding silent auction items and baskets. We were all entertained by John Hightower, a singer guitarist as he was accompanied by member Zach on percussion. Although late for this “happy hour”, golfers finished their round and joined the fun. A delicious fried chicken dinner, prepared by the Royal Lakes Country Club staff, was enjoyed by all and followed by golf awards and sponsorship recognition. Many raffle prizes were given to guests, including a 32″ Vizio flat screen TV and $1,860 to our 50/50 cash raffle winner.
A great day, for a great cause! Thanks to all who contributed and participated!
