Special thanks to board leader Judi Dotson and her team at Booz Allen Hamilton, for hosting a fundraiser happy hour in December at Stone’s Cove Kitbar to support NatGen. It was a success — the whole team came to celebrate the holidays and show their commitment to NatGen. Many of our supporters including AOC Key Solutions, Middleburg Bank, Jenkins Restorations, Capital Financial Investments, and Maid Brigade came to network and celebrate the holiday spirit of giving. Our partners at Stone’s Cove Kitbar once again agreed to donate 10% of that day’s earnings to support NatGen — in all we raised nearly $900 for our programs.
Thanks also to Mark Johnson at Tetra Tech, and Mike Knots at Middleburg Bank for sponsoring a table at our Earth Saving fundraiser event on Dec 14 which raised $1018.00. And last, thank you to all of our dedicated the board leader volunteers: Debi McGhee, Tony Diecidue, Sarah Matheson, Rhonda Jackson, Emily and Amber Walton.
Thank you to our very first sponsors for the Eco-Golf Classic, scheduled for April 24 at Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville. Sponsor opportunities are still available and golfer registration is open. Click here for details.
