Over $180K Raised to Support Children and Adults with Disabilities
PROVAIL 2014 Golf Classic and Auction a success!
SEATTLE, WA, May 15, 2014 – In one day PROVAIL broke their fundraising record and goal during the 2014 Golf Classic and Auction by raising over $180,000 to help support children and adults with disabilities. The PROVAIL Golf Classic and Auction is presented annually by the Pacific Northwest Insurance Council (PNWIC) held at Sahalee Country Club. Over the past 15 years, guests have raised over $1.8 million for PROVAIL programs to support people with disabilities to fulfill their life choices.
“We are deeply grateful for the support of the local insurance community, “said CEO Mike Hatzenbeler. “ And to the PROVAIL Family of donors, sponsors, and volunteers who helped make this event the most successful PROVAIL golf tournament ever.”
Over 200 guests attended, including Seahawks Max Unger and Steven Hauschka who both showed their support by not only golfing, but contributing once in a lifetime live and silent auction items; including a Monday Night Football party with the players that is bound to be the experience that starts a bidding war for years to come. During the live auction PROVAIL held a Raise the Paddle event and asked guests to step up to the challenge of raising over $15,000 to allow a $20,000 matching pool to kick in. With the $20,000 match and generous giving, Raise the Paddle brought in just over $50,000!
The funds raised support PROVAIL in providing specialized services and programs that support children and adults with disabilities. These services include mobility and communication needs, employment support, and access to community-based home and lifestyle options that allow children and adults to live full lives according to their own choices.
