Phil Oreto presented the report for the Golf Tournament which was held on Friday, July 19th at the Province Lake Golf Course. We had the most players ever at 69 players and made a record profit of $3,750. (62% increase over 2018). We had increased sponsorship for the event and Beth Howard helped. Beth obtained, 17 sponsors. Most of the growth for the event was due to Beth. We are going to focus on growing sponsorship next year and we are going to work with the LAC vendor list to help with sponsorship. The goal is $5,000 next year. The golf course will need to raise their rates next year. Maybe we can form a golf committee to help with discussions. We are already starting to plan the 2020 event Stay tuned for more details.
Phil Oreto presented the report for the new fundraiser, BINGO. Bingo is in its third year already. We host games every third Saturday of the month. We are averaging 25-40 players per month and $150 per event. We are paying Beth Howard to run the program. There was no objection to Phil extending the permit until the end of the year.

IT’S OFFICIAL…WE SOLD ALL 500 TICKETS !! That means
$5,000 to LACC. This is the first time ever that all 500 tickets were sold.
We sold 115 calendars at $20 each for a total profit of $1,286.95. The calendars were beautiful. Unfortunately, Louanne can no longer run this fundraiser and we are looking for volunteers to take over. If you are interested, please let Tracie know.
The Arrowhead Prop Busters held three fishing tournaments this year and donated $1,410 to LACC from these events. Thanks to Shannon Doyle and APB for their generosity.
Kathy Hart runs the can and bottle drive. Since Kathy did not attend the meeting, her
report was presented by Tracie Doyle. LACC has an account at JD’s Redemption Center
(across from Hannaford in Waterboro). Just drop off your returnable cans and bottles and
tell them that you want to donate your cash deposit to LACC. They will place your
donation slip in an envelope for LACC and Kathy periodically collects the funds. Our
donations increased to $568.60 this year
