2016 started off with a bang at our first event of the year on April 16. Once again, we held the event at Pluckers in Allen, Texas. Over 200 people came out in support of our amazing cause. The day included lots of fun, wings, head shaving, silent auctions, wine giveaway and the Grand Prize Raffle drawing. We even had one supporter who took the Pluckers "Fire in the Hole" challenge and managed to scarf down 25 of their hottest wings. Verdict is still out on how he is feeling.....
On September 26, we held our 3rd Annual Golf Outing at Eldorado Country Club in McKinney, Texas. We had a full group of teams and everyone had an amazing time despite the odd 65 degree weather with mist. Unfortunately, no one won the $10,000 hole in one prize, but you can tell everyone enjoyed themselves. From the proceeds of these two events, checks totaling $21,000 were presented to Double H Ranch!!!!
Our first event of 2015 was held at Pluckers Wing Bar in Allen, Texas on April 25. A day that included the annual head shaving, silent auction, great food, friends, the grand prize raffle for a condo and airfare...and a surprise live video link from Double H Ranch where campers spending a family weekend announced the raffle winners and shaved Jordan Loeb's (Board Member) head. Our second annual golf outing was held in October and we had over 20 teams join us this year. From the proceeds of these events, checks for a total of $15,000 were presented to Double H Ranch.
2014 events included our annual event which was held in Fishers, Indiana at the Pinheads Entertainment Complex. We also held our first ever Golf Outing on November 5 at Eldorado Country Club in McKinney, Texas. Overall, our friends and all efforts allowed us to donate over $10,000 to Double H Ranch!
2013, as in previous years, included the ever-popular head shaving as a sign of solidarity with the many campers we support. Held in Fishers, Indiana at the Pinheads Entertainment Complex, we had an amazing day with the many efforts of our board members; specifically, Paul and Valerie Wagner.
From the first event through 2012...
Our first ever fundraising effort took place in Plainfield, Illinois at Gunther's Bar and Grill. Gunther's support was integral in helping us get off the ground to where we are today!
