Chips for Children 2016 was a smashing success thanks to all of our sponsors, volunteers, donors, and guests! Our final tally was $40,000 for The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro.
On November 22, 2016 Disaster One president Ras Fenger (right) presented a $40,000 check to Bill Burling (left, Boys & Girls Clubs Advisory Council) and Lee Staton (center, Boys & Girls Clubs Executive Director).
“It’s a great honor to present these proceeds from Chips for Children to the clubs,” said Fenger in making the presentation. “We’re excited by the success of this year’s event and we’re looking forward to an even more successful event next year.”
Mark your calendar now – the 4th annual Chips for Children is slated for September 29, 2017 at the Greensboro Country Club. All the details are coming soon!
Special thanks to photographer Tamara Popik, who documented this year’s event. We think you’ll agree she did a fantastic job. We’ve posted over a hundred shots like the one on your left on Disaster One’s Facebook Page.
Chips for Children supports local programs of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro. Disaster One is wholeheartedly committed to their mission because, as our president Ras Fenger eloquently stated, “An early investment in these young club members will pay long-term dividends, not just for the club members but also for our community.”
Funds raised from Chips for Children will help the Clubs sustain their afterschool and summer programs’ focus on academic success and character development while instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging in each club member.
