And, this year was no exception. We were so happy when they walked through the door on opening day. We were even more excited when they presented the check for the 2021 season. They raised over $14,000 to help those in need this holiday season. How incredible is that, and it set a fundraising record! We are so grateful for all that these brave men and women do all year long to support the mission, with the help of the community. There wasn't a dry eye in the house at the Christmas Wish Headquarters when the donation was presented. It was just incredible.

There were many local businesses that stepped up to support the 2021 Golf Scramble and we want to mention every single one of them. If you see anyone from the Daviess County Fire Department, or the people we've mentioned below, please thank them for their support. After that, you can listen to the interview with the team, and then watch the video presentation!
