Please join us in thanking Dean Spriddle and Spriddle’s Golf Shop for choosing to benefit Interfaith Food Bank through the Dash for Cash event hosted this past Saturday, February 24th. In the attached photo, Dean Spriddle presents Danielle McIntyre of Interfaith Food Bank with the proceeds from the event.
On the last day of operations, the store invited community members to come down to the shop for last minute deals on merchandise and the opportunity to Dash for Cash! Participants paid a $10 entry fee, and had the opportunity to run through the store for 15 seconds, grabbing whatever they could, return to the starting point and stand on one foot for 5 seconds. Anything they had left in their hands was theirs to keep! After 56 dashes, community members left with a lot of great quality golf apparel, shoes and equipment, and the food bank received half of the proceeds.
“Thanks to everyone for supporting Interfaith Food Bank in the “Dash for Cash” raising $280 for a great cause! THANK YOU to all of my customers, friends and family for a great 3 years! See you all at Evergreen for all of your golfing needs,” says Dean Spriddle, local golf professional and store owner.
“Thank you to Dean and Spriddle’s Golf Shop for choosing to support Interfaith Food Bank this way,” says Danielle McIntyre, executive director with Interfaith Food Bank. “The funds raised will go a long way to support local families with emergency food assistance, and we were so pleased to DASH for a bunch of clubs and other golf products that we will use for upcoming fundraising events.”
Spriddle has a long history of serving the golfing community in Lethbridge and area, as well as on the national and international stage. He will continue to offer lessons and coaching at Evergreen Golf Centre now that the shop has closed.
