Helping Our Community: 2017 Charity Golf Event a Huge Success
The 17th annual Renea Parker Charity Golf Event was a huge success this year, raising over $21,000. With 121 participants, incredible donations for the raffle, including an Apple Watch, Beats Solo, Set of Irons, a Ping Driver and Odyssey Putter, Canes Gift Basket, Callaway Range Finder and more, plus the generous support of our hole sponsors, Leavitt Insurance Agency, Helix Electric, Nevada Contract Carpet and Richardson Construction, the event was a resounding success and a lot of fun!
This year we are proud to donate the proceeds to Las Vegas’s own, Rainbow Dreams Academy. Known for a culturally relevant curriculum, this year’s proceeds will go towards helping to fund the new Rainbow Dreams Academy Science Laboratory.
Having funded the Renea Parker Scholarship at Converse College for the past 16 years, we are proud to say that scholarship is now self-funding and will continue to live on. The success of that scholarship fund allows us to now find local noteworthy institutions to support, benefiting the Las Vegas community.
Thank you again, to all who participated, and for making this event successful for 17 years!
Building communities is about more than just the “bricks and mortar.” It’s about supporting each other, and helping your community.
