Thank you to everyone who made the 7th Annual On With Life Golf Outing and Silent Auction on August 1, 2013 a huge success!
With over $56,000 raised this year, and $250,000 raised in the last five years, On With Life has been able to provide equipment for persons served at On With Life. Proceeds go directly back to those with a brain injury and equipment to assist them in their rehabilitation that we would not be able to purchase otherwise.
Your generosity and participation with this year's event made these purchases possible!
In addition to the golf outing itself, there were other ways in which funds were raised that day, which included a silent auction. A Kurt Warner autographed football, VIP tickets to an Iowa State Football game, “one-of-a-kind” items from West End Architectural Salvage, golf four-somes at various country clubs, were among some of the items snapped up by eager bidders, during the silent auction.
Thank you to Judy McCoy Davis and Cindy Friedrichsen, their committee, Brice Musgrove, and the volunteers who generously donated their time to make this year’s event such a success. A special thanks to our 2013 Honorary Co-Chairs, Lizz and Barb Cassler, as well as our Platinum sponsors, American Equity, Casey’s General Store, EMC, and Sterling.
During their presentation at Otter Creek Golf Course, Lizz and Barb discussed the importance of faith, hope and perseverance in difficult times. Lizz spoke of her experience at On With Life and how that lead her into the rest of her recovery. She is now attending Des Moines Area Community College, works at Hy-Vee and hopes to become a personal trainer, live on her own and maybe even “get hitched” someday.
With the generous support of donors, we are able to help persons served and their families find the strength to get "On With Life."
