Thank you to the 146 golfers and sponsors who made August 29, 2016 a spectacular day for Blossom Philadelphia! We raised $63,000 and are still counting!
You could have golfed anywhere and supported any organization, but you chose us and we couldn’t be more grateful. The check you wrote as a golfer or sponsor isn’t just a check that sits in a vault – it is a donation that is helping real people live real lives.
Here in the Development department at Blossom Philadelphia, we handle all the fundraising and donations, so we get a front row seat to your generosity. We are also lucky enough to hear, firsthand, the inspiring stories of the impact your donations and fundraising have made.
This morning, we were talking about a thank you from a young man with cerebral palsy. Sometimes cerebral palsy can affect a person physically – making it harder to talk or walk. This young man has difficulty walking and requires custom shoes. These specialized orthopedic shoes are not fully covered by insurance, but if you ask this young man, they are an essential part of his independence.
Thanks to your donations to the Justin Scarpello Memorial Family Fund through the golf event, he has a new pair of shoes and according to him, you helped put the pep back in his step.
So, we hope you went home from the golf event feeling good about your game, the food and the fun, and most importantly about how you helped the clients of Blossom Philadelphia.
On behalf of the staff and clients, thank you.
