A big thank you to everyone
-- including the youth of Grace -- who helped us pull off the first fundraising golf outing for the pantry on August 29 at Piper Glen Golf Club.
Fifty-two golfers came out on a 90-degree August afternoon to support the Grace Lutheran Food Pantry's first golf outing. The event raised $7,000, enough to fund purchases of food and personal items for Food Pantry clients for about one month.
Thank you to our golfers; our presenting sponsors: Bank of Springfield, Springfield Electric Lighting and Design, Hy-Vee, and the Mike and Sandy Barker Family Fund with the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln in honor of Lyn Kennedy; our hole sponsors: AMCO Fence, Butler Funeral Home, Isringhausen Imports, Pile Properties and Ryan Electric; and the staff at Piper Glen.
