What an amazing fundraiser this year!!! In spite of the economic downturn affecting many of our members and the cancellation of the main event due to bad weather, the Dad's Club Facility has raised over $103,000 and counting!! 

This really is a testament to the support and loyalty that the facility has received from its members. Thank you to all the sponsors this year and help behind the scenes from the many parent volunteers. Without you, none of this could have happened.

The top 8 Swim Team fundraisers raised over $9,000 between them and they picked up their prizes at a fun ceremony on deck. The Silver Swim Group, had the most fundraisers in the top 20 this year, and were rewarded with a pizza party just before Thanksgiving.

The winterizing plans are being finalized as we speak and should be put in place within the next couple of weeks.

Don't forget that you can still apply for matching funding from your company. Contact Helen Pink for more

NOTE: Helen Pink and Heather Buscher are stepping down as the Marathon co-chairs and are looking to find parents interested to take charge of the 2016 fundraiser.

Please let us know if you are interested! We can give you more details about what is involved and will be on hand to ensure a smooth transition!

Top fundraising team this year was Silver Swim Group. Enjoying a lot of pizza at the party! Well done Team!!!
