Golf Scramble Success!

Well, the (First Annual) Dalton Adoption Golf Scramble has came and went, and all we're left with is a pile of cash :) We were able to raise money for our adoptions, and we had a great time doing it. I don't think a bunch of amateurs like us could've done any better!! We'll be posting a bunch of pictures as soon as we can.


Before I go on, I'd like to thank everyone who donated to the event (coffee, food, merchandise, time, etc.); if it wasn't for your all's generosity, we wouldn't have been able to hold such a successful event. I'd also like to give a big shout out to all of our generous participants. Your support means so much, and because of you, we were able to raise a great deal of money that will aid in our providing forever homes for two orphans.

Most importantly, we want to thank God. Thank You for giving us each a passion for orphans, and for blessing every path we take that leads to them. Please continue to bless the adoption community as we know You will.

-----------------------------------

It's been weighing pretty heavily on my heart that we should make this an annual event. This time next year (unless God moves a BIG mountain) we will most likely be fundraising the remaining portion of our international adoption. If we've already exceeded our goals, whatever money we raise, we want to donate to another family here in Louisville that is trying to overcome the financial burden associated with adopting. The adoption community has been so welcoming and supportive, we thought we'd like to give back by blessing other adopting families through our (soon to be annual event) Dalton Adoption Golf Scramble.

If you have any interest in participating in next year's event, please leave a comment below, or send us an email. We would love to get you involved.

    1. We didn't really know what we were doing going into it, so that certainly added to the difficulty :) It is a lot of work, but the reward was totally worth it. I'd be happy to help you if you decide to do one!!!
