St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Fundraising Events


 A HUGE SUCCESS

OUR COMMUNITY COMES THROUGH AGAIN 

 

As we hope you know, Club members sponsored a Pickleball Rodeo last Sunday.  It was great fun for all and congratulations to all the winners!  The Winners of the Division A Skills Contest was the team of Pat Kolarik, Judy Brown, Craig Witt and Sandra Hubbard.  The Division B Skills winners were Donna Davis, Jackie Comito, Steve Comito and Madelyn Witt.  The Gold Medal Winners in the Round Robin Relay were Rich Haupt, Kay Martens, Connie Olsen, and Jolece Oughton.  Susie Eckhardt, Dennis Grothaus, Deb Robinson and Christel Gibbons took Silver, and Pat Kolarik, Judy Brown, Craig Witt and Sandra Hubbard took Bronze.    Sorry if you missed it - It was a very good time!

 

Another St. Jude event, a holiday Gala, took place on the preceding Friday evening at our Madera Clubhouse.  It was attended by 96 folks and was also a very fun evening with entertainment by Will Foraker.  

 

While the figures are still being finalized, it looks like the two events raised over $13,500 for St. Jude!   Thanks to all who participated and for all your generosity!   

Quail Creekers are a great bunch of folks!
