Giving begets Giving this Summer at BITS ETC

Mystique looking for the best 'green'
Mystique looking for the best 'green'

Hello to all BITS ETC Supporters:

Last month we hosted an Open House for Veterans to let everyone know about our complimentary Ride UP program to put veterans, and their family members on horses.  It was a great day with over 40 participants learning the joy of working with horses, riding, and interacting with ponies, and our donkey, Mr. Jingles.

On April 25, we received a call from Brian.  His friend Dan had fallen in Iraq two years ago, and Brian wished to honor his memory, and in so doing, raise funds for veteran's services.  He had attended our Open House, and suggested to Countryside Golf Club that they host a benefit golf tournament in Dan's honor.  Memorial Day weekend saw 35 golfers come out to play for BITS ETC so our services to veterans can remain free of charge.

Mystique, our spokes-horse attended the gala event,and provided some entertainment when she escaped, and had to be wrangled back by golf cart riding 'cowboys."  No one had seen a horse on the course before...but even with all the excitement, we were able to raise nearly $4,000.00 to fill the scholarship coffers once again.

Our 'free" open house led to donations to support the programs, and provided a memorable Memorial Day filled with fun and purpose.  We were happy to learn we have just started the first of many "Annual Red White and Blue Golf Benefit Days" as Countryside asked us back for next year.

What goes around, comes around, so I am asking my Global Giving partners who enjoy golfing but were unable to enjoy the day at Countryside,  to help us fill the coffers for veterans who give so much to each of us with their service.  In memory of someone you know and remembered this Memorial Day, won't you please support BITS ETC with a donation today?

 

Thank you,

Pauline
