Since STAR was just a crazy thought a handful of us had and we started on the grand scheme of incorporating and pursuing our 501c3, Dicks Sporting Goods and BC Community Charities has been a huge supporter of our work- both financially and mentally. The folks at Dicks Sporting Goods has always had our backs, believing we could do great things, and it kept up rolling through paperwork, downtime, uptime, and everything that comes with rescue work. Every year since we formed, we have worked with Dicks Sporting Goods, volunteering during the Dicks Sporting Goods Open. It has been a fantastic, fast-paced riot of a time. An excellent way to connect with a huge part of the community and people we honestly would not see if we stuck to more rescue- traditional venues. A wonderful opportunity to volunteer our time with BC Community Charities through the Open and give to the community that has been so supportive of us.
The folks at Dicks Sporting Goods are an amazing group of people and we are proud to be a part of the madness each year. We could not be who and what we are without their support and this opportunity to participate with BC Community Charities through the Dicks Sporting Goods Open.
Once again we will be back at the Dicks Sporting Good Open (August 11-17) doing our part to give back to the community This is a wonderful opportunity to work with amazing people, have fun and enjoy all this area has to offer. I know the volunteers are very excited to be running the merchandise store for them.
Several other volunteers will be marshaling holes on various days. I have issued a challenge to my hard working volunteers. I have dared them to sell out the store. Can they do it? They can with your help. Remember all the money goes to BC Community Charities which since its inception has raised over $11 million!
Now it’s my turn to challenge all of you. Are you up for it? I challenge all of you to come out and enjoy this great event. With your support, we can make our goal of having a sold out store by Sunday.
I challenge you to do the Wendy’s Walk for Kids on Sunday August 17.
I challenge you to volunteer for this great event- they are still looking for volunteers.
I dare you to laugh, have fun, meet old friends, new friends and enjoy the week.
Are you up for the challenge? I think you are.
