How Did Celebration Go?

How Did Celebration Go?

It is time for a breather! Serve Denton has been preparing for our annual gala, Celebration, for quite some time.  With the great success of the event behind us, now we can truly celebrate. The success of the event is due the work and dedication of our awesome board, staff, volunteers, and our Super Volunteer – Priscilla Sanders, co-founding board member. It is also largely due to our supporters who came to the event and helped raise funding so more people in Denton County can become self-sufficient. 

Business Partner of the Month - Joey & Amy Hawkins

We were honored to recognize Joey and Amy Hawkins at one of Serve Denton’s board meetings for being our Business Partner of the Month! Joey and Amy have participated in many of Serve Denton’s programs and events from donating to our ScripZone gift card program to participating in our 2015 North Texas Giving Day campaign. Along with their financial support of Serve Denton, they have generously provided food and drinks from Jupiter House and Royal’s Bagels and Deli for events throughout the year.

For Serve Denton’s annual gala, Celebration, they not only attended, but supported by donating to the silent auction. Last year, they donated the “Lattes for One Year” package, which provides unlimited lattes for a full year from Jupiter House.

The couple also organized a fall picnic on the Denton Courthouse Lawn for another silent auction item! This included a private dinner for 12 with catered food and wine from Chef Suzanne Johnson and Maitre’d Daniel Johnson. During the event, a photographer took pictures of the participants dressed in black and white with some fun accessories. Those pictures were then turned into a 2017 calendar!

This year, Priscilla Sanders, co-founding board member of Serve Denton, took the win on this item with some of her friends. They enjoyed their picnic on Thursday, October 20. Here are some pictures from the event!

Serve Denton’s First Topgolf Tournament

If you’re a Topgolf fan and Serve Denton’s mission tugs on your heart, we have the perfect opportunity for you!

For those who have never experienced Topgolf, check out this video below to learn how it works. You can also check out Topgolf’s FAQ page by Clicking Here.

On November 3, Topgolf is hosting Serve Denton’s third-annual golf tournament from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.! All proceeds will benefit Serve Denton to help lower overhead costs for local nonprofit agencies that office with us so more of their money will go toward their mission.

Each bay accommodates four to six golfers and costs $500. This will include unlimited soft drinks and appetizers, so you won’t be leaving hungry!

Individual golfers can also register for $100 a piece. All participants will receive a Lifetime Membership card, which allows participants to keep track of their score. The card also provides free golf clubs for adults (men and women) and kids. They even have clubs for you lefties out there.

We will be having some fun competitions throughout the afternoon, with great prizes for individuals and teams! Some of these competitions include: Longest Shot, Hole-In-One, Best Overall Team Score, Best Individual Score, Battle of the Banks, Car Race, Beat the Pro, Top Lady’s Score and more! The nine winners will compete for prizes such as rounds of golf for four, steak dinners and a Yeti cooler. There will also be 15 silent auction items with packages including rounds of golf for four and themed baskets.

We will have three sponsorship opportunities: Champion, Eagle and Birdie.

Here’s the cool part, the Champion ($5,000) level sponsor will receive a one-year Topgolf Corporate Platinum Membership valued at $5,225! This sponsor will also receive two platinum bays to accommodate four to six people. Your company logo will be placed on Serve Denton’s website and social media platforms, your company banner will be placed at Topgolf during the event, and your logo will be displayed on seven of Serve Denton’s private lounge T.V.s.

The Eagle ($2,500) and Birdie ($1,000) sponsorships include premium bays along with highly visible advertising opportunities for your company.

The fundraiser will take place at 3760 Blair Oaks Dr. The Colony, TX 75056. We would love to have you be apart of our first Topgolf Tournament. If you want to sign up, just click on the button below!
