Back Packs Full Of School Supplies
For  Kids In Our Community

     Thanks to the Rotary Community Corp (RCC) for helping those in need. On July 22, 2014 they put together back packs full of school supplies for kids in our community.  We can’t do what we do without groups like the Rotary Club of Parker and the RCC.


2014 Annual Golf Tournament
Was A Huge Success

    The 6th annual Golf Tournament was a huge success thanks to sponsors, golfers, silent auction donors and bidders, and volunteers.  One hundred thirty nine golfers played in the best ball event. Many of PTF’s volunteers worked at the event or came to the club for the annual lunch and silent auction. This year’s auction had nearly 100 items donated by various business and individuals from the community. The results from this event are superb - $73,000 was raised for the Capital Campaign. That is a bit less than last year but double from the 4th annual tournament.  What a great day for the Parker Task Force on Monday June 16, 2014 at Spring Valley Golf Club in Elizabeth, Colorado.

    Steve Budnack, Volunteer Chairman of PTF said, “We are so grateful for the support from this community. In addition to the golfers and silent auction donors, we had nearly 40 multi-level sponsors for the event. Without this tremendous support, we would not be able to raise such a significant amount of money to put towards our new building.  Again this year, we recognize Spring Valley Golf Club for their support and assistance in putting on the tournament. Of course, we could not do what we do without our dedicated volunteers. Thank you to everyone!”

Thank You Master Gardeners and Douglas County

   A group of Douglas County Master Gardeners are growing produce for the Parker Task Force in the Hidden Mesa Open Space area. Last year the gardeners delivered nearly 3000 pounds of vegetables and fruits to the Task Force.  The clients really enjoy the garden fresh produce.  Since the Task Force normally buys produce, we save money while providing high quality nutritious food to the clients.  We appreciate and enjoy the partnership with the Master Gardeners.


 


Many Thanks To The Rotarians
For Their On-Going Support And Service!

   With cuts coming to programs designed to help the needy with their utility bills, The Parker Task Force wants to recognize the Rotary Clubs for their support to help provide this vital service to our clients.

   PTF would like to thank the Rotary Club of Parker, Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club of Parker, Rotary Club of Castle Pines, Rotary Club of Castle Rock and the Rotary Club of Centennial. The clubs held fundraisers that included a peach sale with Joy Lutheran Church and a karaoke contest at Takoda Tavern to raise money to help fund a grant for PTF. We also want to thank IREA for its contribution to this utility grant.

   The Rotary Clubs’ motto “Service Above Self”, exemplifies the spirit of the organization and their ongoing support of PTF. We are grateful for this long and valuable association and so are the many families who come to us for support and assistance.
