Greetings, Dearest Mission Of Hope Friends;

Thank You will never seem like enough…But I simply want to say THANK YOU from the hearts of all of us here at The Hope; for an absolutely amazing and blessed 8th Annual Chick-fil-A & Mission Of Hope Golf Classic.  To all of our Sponsors, Players, Volunteers, and other MOH Friends; we are immensely grateful and appreciative of all of your compassionate support for this wonderful event.  And a very special Thank You, to all of our Chick-fil-A Mission Of Hope Friends; for deeming our humble Appalachian Ministry worthy of their partnership and incredible support.  We hope to make between $35,000 & $40,000; after all of our expenses are paid.  This will help us tremendously; as this year\’s Back To School Program, will cost over $100,000; to purchase brand new Backpacks & School Supplies; for over 10,000 Students; at 27 rural Elementary Schools.  It was indeed a \”Very Blessed Day\”.

Here are the results of this year\’s Golf Classic along with a complete listing of all of our \”Mission Of Hope Friends\”…Who helped make this extremely special day possible for The Hope.
