It's Been Awhile

It has been quite a while since we have updated the blog!

We have lots of exciting things planned for 2010! We are hosting a poker run with a bit of a twist late this Spring that is sure to be lots of fun! We are hosting the 3rd Annual Jack Ryan Gillham Memorial Golf Tournament this Summer and in October we will host the 4th Annual Jack's Baby Shower.

In addition to those events we are doing a couple of new fundraisers this year. On March 1st we are launching "Every Penny Counts." There will be donation jars set up at locations in Northwest and Central Arkansas where people can donate their spare change. This fundraiser will run for six weeks. On March 1st the donation jars wil be dropped off at various locations and on April 15th we will pick them up. The place who has raised the most funds will receive a JRG Foundation t-shirt for all participants and will be featured in the local newspaper. We have had a tremendous response to this fundraiser and we are looking forward to seeing how much money can be raised just by collecting spare change. Every Penny Counts!! :)

In other exciting news, the JRG Foundation was featured in a local magazine in January. You can click here to read the article. Thanks to Peekaboo Magazine for the wonderful article!

The 3rd Annual Jack's Baby Shower was the most successful one to date. We collected tons of donations for Arkansas Children's Hospital NICU and Ronald McDonald House! Thank you to all of those who donated!!

As always, thank you for your support!! Stay tuned for updates on The Jack Ryan Gillham Foundation!
