We cannot think of a better way to end this week than with a post to brag on our community.
On July 24th and 25th, after a year-long organization and coordination, our agency held our 4th Annual Golf Scramble here in Fort Scott at the Woodland Hills Golf Course.
If not for our community, this event would not have been such a success. With the help of sponsors and businesses donating items for raffle and auction our agency presented a check to Special Olympics Kansas for $32,125. All that money stays in our Southeast Kansas region to benefit the athletes.
To date, our fundraiser for Special Olympics Kansas, is the largest in the State!!!!
It is all thanks to you, our community, for pulling together for a phenomenal cause!
We would also like to call out a few behind the scenes people that made this event happen: BBCO Undersheriff Ben Cole, Steve Anthony, PPD Lt. Chris Moore (Kansas State Director of the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run), Erin Fletcher (Special Olympics Kansas Director of Grants & Development) and Sheriff Martin for allowing our Undersheriff to continue to hold these fundraisers. These people worked hard for the last year making sure everything was perfect so that our event could run as smoothly as possible.
Thank you so much for joining us and helping us raise this money for Special Olympics Kansas!!
