Phil Oreto presented a report on his golf tournament fundraiser that was held in August which raised $1,100, which was more than last year. He had 31 golfers turnout for the event and a BBQ was held afterwards at his home and was catered by The Peppermill. The golf tournament is a growing event. The costs are now fixed, so the more golfers we get, the more money for LACC.
First prize $3,000 –
Second prize $1,500 –

We sold 446 raffle tickets. As a result, we raised $3,920 from the raffle.

The Fishing Tournament in August hosted by the Arrowhead Prop Busters resulted in a donation of $683 this year.
We have reactivated an old fundraiser…the can and bottle drive at JDs Redemption
Center in Waterboro. Shannon Doyle started this fundraiser years ago, but we never really pursued it. We have collected $34.50 from JDs. They have been holding onto the money for years. If you bring your returnables to JDs, just tell them that you want to apply your return money to the Lake Arrowhead Conservation Council’s account. We will periodically send someone down to collect the money. If requested with proper documentation, tax donation receipts can be provided for your donations. We are looking for someone to run this program. If you are interested, please notify us.
