As an adjunct to event planning, I've had the opportunity to plan and assist in planning a couple golf outings. Golf outings are really fun, but hard work for sure. They take some serious dedication. Let's face it, these days, people/businesses don't want to part with their money, nor do they want to (or maybe they just feel guilty) golf on work time.
Nonetheless, they are still fun and supporting amazing causes just makes it worth it.
The upcoming Winfield Volunteer Fire Company Golf Outing is something that is near and dear to my husband's heart. He takes great pride in assisting in the planning of this with the Fire Department. (He's a Firefighter/Paramedic) I get to do all the fun stuff, like design the invites and help out on the day of!
Another outing that I recently planned from start to finish, with the assistance of a co-worker was for an organization called The Foundation for International Mental Health & Rehab. Dr. Renato De Los Santos heads up this amazing foundation which provides education and assistance to mental health patients and caregivers in the Phillipines. It was an honor to be asked to plan this event from start to finish and even though it POURED RAIN ALL DAY, we still had a great turnout and a lot of fun.
