Endowment Golf Benefit a Huge Success! 

The weather smiled on this year’s golfers, sending down sunshine instead of rain on a gorgeous Spring day in Central Texas. The event was a big success, due to the efforts of so many loyal Endowment supporters whose warm hearts made the day fun and exciting. This year was marked by increased support from agency grant recipients who donated several valuable items for swag bags. Water to Thrive joined in as a Gold Sponsor and the TLLC Child Development Center sponsored the event at the Silver Level! People made sacrifices in order to support this important source of Endowment revenue; at least one couple rescheduled their vacation in order to play.  Many people decided to sponsor the event once again, while some joined as sponsors for the first time. The event netted over $8000.00.

Congratulations to the First Place Winners of the coveted Pastor's Cup: Trevor Green, Shelly Mc Laughlin, Brian Hendrixson, and Trey Owen. This team was sponsored by Blazier, Christensen, Bigelow & Virr, and the prize (valued at over $1000.00) included a four-person entry to the Fall UPBRING (formerly LSSS) golf benefit, as well as four gorgeous golf shirts, and four water bottles! 

Because there was a tie for second and third places, the Second Place winners were selected through a tie-breaking process of elimination. Congratulations to: Ted Reynolds, Dick Lynch, Steve Sands, and Marvin Coffman.  This prize was donated by Great Hills Country Club and included golf certificates.  In a true spirit of generosity, the winners turned around and donated the prize back to the Endowment. 

And, finally, congratulations to the Third Place Winners (sponsored by: Water to Thrive): Myron Jordahl, Paul Wagner, Dick Moeller, and Mark Wagner.

Of course, the biggest winner last Sunday was the Endowment which, because of your support - your sponsorship, your golf teams, your prayers, your encouragement - because of YOU the TLLC Endowment has once again had a truly successful golf benefit.

Many thanks to Endowment Supporters!
