Golf Ball Drop 2018

By Roger & Nancy Lindley

Hello CMIRC Rotarians and Club Supporters, On 3rd of March 2018, we will be having our Golf Ball Drop fundraiser in association with the Thailand International Balloon Festival. This is a major fundraiser for our club and funds raised go exclusively to supporting our many local projects associated with children's health, safety and education. We have developed an info sheet (see below) to help with the sales effort. The past two events each raised about 135,000 Baht to support our projects. This year we hope, through all of our dedicated group efforts, to raise more than 200,000 Baht. We have significantly expanded our projects over the past several years and consequently need to raise more funds to support our good efforts in our community. We will be talking more about the fundraiser during the coming months. Go forth and sell! Regards in Rotary Service, Roger and Nancy Lindley Fundraiser Co-champions
