Brad Asplund Memorial Golf Fundraiser
HELLO TO EVERYONE! The best golf tournament in the city is back! First off we would like to thank you all again, for your outstanding support over the past years and thank you to all of the new sponsors as well! It’s that time of year again for our exciting fundraising tournament!
Throughout each of our lives every one of us will or has come across someone who has influenced us in an extra special way. For me it was my father Brad. From building bus stops for children to working with athletes from the Special Olympics he was always involved in an act of kindness. His character was built around helping anyone and everyone around him. This is one of the many distinguishing features of his personality that I had the privilege to witness for the majority of my life. Brad started this fundraiser over 15 years ago with the vision of bringing our local community together. Now it is my turn too follow in a great mans footsteps and bring our community together for a great cause.
Every Christmas growing up my dad Brad would search out for a family in need for the holidays. Now that I am a father and reflect back on this, I realize this was one of the most important life lessons my father taught us. He showed us that it doesn’t matter what size house you live in, how many cars you drive, or how much money you have. What matters is "Let me do all the good I can, to all the people I can, as often as I can, for I shall not pass this way again."
With our fundraiser this year I will be personally seeking out Military families with children who are need of a helping hand this holiday season. There are so many people out there that put their lives on the line to give us this wonderful country we live in. This is a chance to say thank you and lend a helping hand. We will be buying a Christmas tree, all decorations, presents and Christmas dinner for each family. With this special time of year and the spirit of giving, I hope that you would like to be a part of it.
The money we raised last year was used to help out 3 different families for the Christmas holidays. All of whom were very gracious and thankful. Our fundraiser brought smiles to their faces and joy to their hearts. Brad would have loved it!!!!!!! Thank You.
