On May 6th, 2013, The Next Stop hosted our annual 7th Golf, Dinner and Wine Event. This event raises money to support The Next Stop and also provides a great day of fun! With the threat of rain after a soaking wet weekend, we again were blessed with a dry day, although a bit cool for May.
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 our musical trio–Daniel and Brennan Warren and Rica Tan. Adding to the festivities was a visit from the Atlanta Dream’s mascot STAR and player Tiffany Hayes. We all enjoyed a delicious meal sponsored by Wayne Farms and prepared by the Royal Lakes Golf and Country Club staff. Beth Thrutchley, a parent of a member of The Next Stop, told the crowd what The Next Stop means to her daughter and to her family, followed by The Next Stop volunteer Gerry Metzgar who spoke of her experience mentoring our members. The night continued with sponsor awards, golf awards, raffle prizes and silent auction purchases. Whew!…..A great day, for a great cause!
Thank you to all our sponsors, all who contributed and all who participated!
