Congratulations to all the 2012 EDGC Food Toss participants, sponsors and supporters!
We raised $1923, which will provide almost 6000 meals to people in Lane County who need help. Combined with the 2012 EDGC Ice Bowl contribution this brings the EDGC total to $3951 for Food For Lane County in 2012!
Props to Jim Johnson for running the Food Toss all these years and starting this tradition of giving back to our community. When we become a contributing part of our community we help disc golf become more recognized and legitimate in the eyes of people who have no idea about the sport, and this is especially helpful in a place like Eugene where disc golf is woefully underdeveloped. We're doing good things for others and for ourselves!
Our contact at Food For Lane County told me that our efforts are definitely being noticed and more than one group has decided to run similar fundraiser athletic events - soccer tournaments, etc. on this model after seeing our success. Congratulations EDGC and thank you to everyone involved!
