Allmand hosted a Back 9 Night-Lite Golf Fundraiser on August 17th at the Holdrege Country Club. It took a total of sixty-one Night-Lite PRO II™ V-Series® light towers to light up the back nine and eighteen 4-person teams competed in this unique event.
Allmand made the decision to host a golf tournament to celebrate its 75th year in business as well as a thank you to its vendors and chose to light up the back nine of the Holdrege Country Club for a unique opportunity to showcase their portable light towers. Knowing it would require a lot of manpower in order to place the light towers on the course, Allmand decided to take advantage of the opportunity and host a second tournament (the following night) as a benefit event, allowing area golfers to compete and have a unique experience.
Finding out the best use of the charitable proceeds led Allmand to contribute the $3,079.76 in proceeds from the tournament to the Phelps County Community Foundation's challenge incentive pool of funds for Give2Grow - Phelps County Match Day 2013. By contributing to the incentive match pool of funds, each of the 45 participating non-profit organizations will receive a pro-rated share of the incentive match pool. Allmand felt this was a great way to spread the charitable dollars raised for the benefit.
The Phelps County Community Foundation will host its 2nd giving day on Thursday, November 21. Forty-five (45) local non-profit organizations will be raising funds during this one-day giving event. An incentive match pool of funds of over $105,000 will grow your gifts when you contribute to Give2Grow Phelps County on November 21. For more information visit give2grow.razoo.com
