MEMORIAL VIDEOS:

At the fundraiser this year, Ashley created several memorium videos to be played over the TV.  The videos included In Memory of Hailie Smith, Jessica Helmbreck, a tribute to our veterans, as well as a re-cap of Charles’ Ride.  These were all things that happened during 2016 plus the tribute to our veterans who participated in the video.  If you would like to be recognized for next year, please contact Ashley or Todd. Thanks again for making this all possible!

GOLF CARTS!

This year’s camping season is well on it’s way. With that being said we have already had six families stay at the Pride Of America Camping Resort for their Weekend Wish Getaway. The families have been able to view the resort while riding around on golf carts that were Donated by the Pride Of America Camping Resort. This donation was huge for the organization. The carts were serviced and maintenance done and some upgrades made. Special Thanks To Pride Of America Camping Resort for the golf carts , Skyjacked Golf Carts, Kraft Golf Cars , Tony Seidel , Larry and Heidi Lindsey and Justin Fruend for all your help with parts and maintenance of getting the fleet ready. Special Thanks also to the Pride Of America Staff that helps with getting our golf carts to our families and making sure all our families questions, accommodations are handled in such a professional manner. Thanks Again To All Our Volunteers And Supporters . None of this would be possible without Each And Everyone Of You. UNITED WE STAND TOGETHER.

Thank you again to PRIDE OF AMERICA for your generosity.
