Early Learning Success Begins with Books at Home

Thanks to the Flat Creek Niners

We owe a big THANK YOU to the Flat Creek Niners.  On August 30, 2016 the Flat Creek Niners, an all-women’s golf team, hosted a golf tournament at Flat Creek Country Club.  All proceeds of that tournament were donated to the Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy – Fayette County!!! 

The teams did a tremendous job of fundraising for the tournament and donated $11, 276.29 to Fayette Ferst.  To put that amount into perspective, that will provide 1 book per month for a year to 313 registered children (ages 0-5) in Fayette County.  What a wonderful gift of literacy from this great club.  We cannot thank you enough for this generous donation.

We want to thank the following golfers who played in the tournament:  Maile Jones, Kathy Howell, Brenda Inman, Carol Doerr, Ally Griffies, Suzette Walston, Jo Muratti, Linda Wyatt, Cathy McDonald, Teresa Casey, Susan Hebelka, Sharon Harper, Alicia Fox, Elaine Yarborough, Lynn Amos, Evie Harris, Kim Chapple. Geri Erens, Susan Ruhala, Kathy Aspden, Janet Egan, Annie Davis, Lorene Barron, Pat Wand, Lenna Siderius, Jan Green, Sheila Ostrofsky, Lee Sasser, Sandy Schenck, Shelly Wieland, Ruth Campbell, Jane Carter, Alice Todd, Kathy Crocker-Paridon, Lori Shrader, Sue Slade, Linda Sherwin, Nancy Waller,Lisa Blanchar, Margaret Alford, Dale Tyson, Tina Arnold, Jean McAdoo, Betty Gaver, Sue Reed, Babs Whalley, Sonya Murphy, Rita Briggs, Gail Lindskog, Kathy Hawks, Susan Triunfo, Karen Bultman, Nylsa King, Joyce Lenhardt, and Joan Maxwell.

We also want to thank the following people and companies who were Hole Sponsors ($100 each) for the tournament:  Inserve, Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance, Karen Bultman Photography, Mellow Mushroom, Seldon Properties, Tamara Bourne Realty Team (sponsored 4 holes), Tout Sweets, Yamaha Golf Carts, Rita and Lee Briggs, Ortho Atlanta, Sheila Ostrofsky Mahjong Group, and Danny Nungesser.

What a pleasure it was to work with this enthusiastic, supportive, and generous group of women.  The time and hard work you donated to support Ferst Foundation – Fayette County is greatly appreciated, and you certainly surpassed our expectations.  Thanks again for all you did for the children that we support in our community.
