Competing For The Partnership!

The spirit of competition can drive people to accomplish some amazing feats and that spirit was alive and well during The Partnership For Our Kids first annual fund drive. Partnership staff made the task of raising annual funds a little more interesting with a team competition. Each team developed their own community fundraisers and spread the word to family and friends. “I think this fund drive only scratched the surface of the creativity, ingenuity and persistence our staff has to offer as fundraisers,” said team leader, Nick Sasada.

Collectively, the team competition raised nearly $6,000 of the $38,000 fund drive grand total. “Our staff has been fully committed to raising funds for our organization. Without their dedication, we wouldn’t have raised as much as we did.” says Partnership Development Director, Nicole Everingham. Team fundraisers included office jeans days, a restaurant night at Julio’s West, holiday photo sales and a community bowling event at Maplewood Lanes.

The Partnership For Our Kids is currently planning a spring golf fundraising event that will be held at Omaha Country Club on May 16th. Foursomes and sponsorships are available, call Nikki at 402-930-3026 for more information or to reserve your foursome.
