Impromptu Fundraiser

Keifer Sutherland Helps Collect $1,000 for BNI Foundation at Impromptu Fundraiser

Fundraising for the BNI Foundation was a huge success at this year’s BNI US National Conference in Las Vegas. The Foundation has surpassed it’s goal of raising $20,000 in direct donations. At the end of the conference the BNI Foundation had raised $26,000 as well as signed up six new Heroes and five new Super Heroes. Heroes and Super Heroes are supporters who commit to donate $50 a month and $100 a month respectively.

In a chance encounter, actor Keifer Sutherland, who was visiting the Red Rock Casino, was kind enough to offer his support for an impromptu fundraiser at the hotel lounge. Guests were quick to demonstrate their generosity, donating cash, and even poker chips, right on the spot. By evening’s end, Mr. Sutherland had helped raise $1,000 to contribute the Foundation’s goal.

The funds raised will allow the BNI Foundation to double the number of Givers Gain® awarded this year. We would like to thank all of the BNI Foundation’s supporters and donors that are helping us reach our goals. Remember that the BNI Foundation is your Foundation, and its work is only possible when our members drive home the Givers Gain® core value.

 

The Triad’s 2016 Golf Tournament Fundraiser

Last year’s golf tournament was a success, raising thousands of dollars for the Boys and Girls Club. The folks involved in the Business Voices movement are preparing for the second annual golf tournament on September 30, which is a Friday. That gives the team the summer to put things in order for a fantastic day for the community.

This year’s golf tournament will be at the Maple Chase Country Club, and will feature raffles, swag bags full of goodies, and of course various golfing packages for visitors and their friends.

Golfing for Kids and Other Upcoming Projects

Golfing and raising money for children’s charities — what could be better on a sunny afternoon? On September 18 the Triad BNI chapters did just that.

The recent Winston Lake golf tournament was a successful fundraiser for local kids’ memberships to the Salvation Army’s Boy’s and Girl’s Club of America. This program helps kids in need receive the mentoring and great learning activities to grow through after school programs. BNI has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of America in the past, but this is a first for the version of the club run by the Salvation Army.
