Last year was a success, bringing in over 800 coats, but the goal is to improve on that number this year. We are looking for new coats with the tags still on them, and they can be brought to the Energy Solutions Arena any day leading up to the game or the day of, Nov. 7th.
So far, Seer Group, our non-profit construction group, has completed several projects since its inception:
-repaired two roofs, one being a complete tear off and replacement, the other not quite as extensive.
-added an addition to a home of a little girl who has leukemia, which is now her own own bedroom so that it is easier to keep it clean and protect her from becoming sick. A thanks to all the help we had on this job, especially TKI, your help was greatly appreciated.
-constructed, assembled, and installed the shelves you see to the left for the Youth Homeless Shelter as well as added some new shelves for food storage and a desk for the youth to work at.
-a family had an old carpeted floor that was causing significant problems for a woman with allergies; Seer Group came in and replaced the old floor with a wood floor to alleviate some of the problem.
-crafted and installed a coffee bar for a local church.
-numerous smaller projects at other local organizations and churches, including the construction of a counseling center room and food bank storage area.
-along with the Dodgeball which raised $20,000 between the Point of Hope Foundation and the Kyle Korver Foundation, Seer Group also installed new shelves for storage and toys at the Christmas Box House.
This year was the 3rd annual charity golf event to support the Boys and Girls Club of Omaha. Director Fred Schott and the B&G Club of Omaha have made incredible impact in the lives of the youth, helping them to achieve amazing things as well as work to reach their potential. We are proud to support him and the organization. We finally got a nice day, not too hot like the first year, and not freezing cold and rainy like the last. It was a tremendous success, and a special thanks to all involved, and Shadow Ridge for allowing us to hold it at your golf course again.
Just to give some recap, the last couple years the money has been used to purchase some vans and also fund the work of the Club. They have some great programs in place for the youth. We feel confident in the work being done and the people who are doing it, so if you want to support a great cause, check out The Boys and Girls Club of Omaha.
