North Plains, Oregon, July 20th, 2015. Over 250 Ronald McDonald House Charities supporters hit the courses at the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. Mike Francis, General Manager of Nike Golf was joined by John Springer, Vice President of Supply Chain Operations and Rob Harris. At this year’s event, Nike hosted a Nike Mobile Pro Shop, which helped raise more than $6,000. (All golfers received a $100 gift certificate to spend then proceeds over and above $100 also went to support Ronald McDonald House Charities.)
Golfers got to choose between Ghost Creek or the private Witch Hollow for an afternoon of golfing. The 2015 fundraising goal was $240,000 for RMHC while helping to raise awareness of our programs and services. Golfers included business executives, community leaders and philanthropic donors who represented companies such as Coca Cola, Jeld-Wen, McDonald’s, Nike, Parr Lumber, the Portland Trail Blazers, The Standard and Weyerhaeuser.
The next event coming up for the nonprofit will be the Hearts and Hands Gala; Saturday, Oct. 10 6-11 p.m. with an evening featuring a live and silent auction, gourmet dinner and cocktails, dancing and more.
