Caring for Our Community
Now that we are well into 2018, we wanted to take a few minutes to update our loyal and wonderful support system.
We had an OUTSTANDING 2017! Not only did we have successful events we have had in the past, but have introduced new events as well.
We started off in March with our SOLD OUT Wine Gala! The generosity for that event continues to amaze the entire board of directors at GCC. We look forward to that event on March 22nd at Riverside Receptions, so stay tuned for ticket information. We project this event WILL be another sell out.
In April, our High School group, Vikings for our Community, held their first ever spring event. Last year it was the Spring Swing. Ticket sales were more than the high school club could have dreamed of in the first year. The event was so successful that they will continue on with another spring event on April 14th. Like last year, it will be held at the Geneva Methodist Church. There will be a new theme this year. Line dancing! We will have a live band and dance teacher come out to teach everyone some country line dancing steps. It truly is a great evening.
ANOTHER new event that was added was our first 5K. Over 250 runners came out to run and support GCC with the Mid Summer 5K. We look forward to this event in July with even more runners participating this year.
In August, one of our older events continued to be a great success. The annual golf outing at Eagle Brook Country Club had record number ticket sales and numerous sponsors that came out and supported our cause. We even had a live auctioneer that proved to be a real crowd pleaser. We look forward to giving more details for our 2018 outing in August.
As a board, we are so incredibly thankful to have THE best support a Community could ask for. With the funds we raise, we are able to help out over 20 different charities each year. It's a task that we are so incredibly honored and fulfilled being part of. We continue to grow and build and come up with fresh ideas each day. Our goal is to continue helping as many people as we can, one charity at a time. We are looking forward to a great 2018 year and cannot wait for all of you to see what we have in store for the future!
