The Rubber Chicken Invitational Golf Outing (aka 'RCI') is an annual event that we sponsor that brings a wide variety of people together to raise money that will benefit either a small local business or a local family that has suffered considerable hardship due to no fault of their own.
What makes the RCI unique is that it's FREE and there is no set donation amount required. The Daniel Foundation covers every golfer's green fees which, in turn, allows each golfer to make a donation, 100% of which will go to the event's identified recipient (This year's is a local US Veteran) without also having the burden of having to pay their greens fees. Each individual can donate whatever amount they wish, based upon their current circumstances and financial status. In short, we want to remove as many barriers as we can which otherwise might keep people from participating. Donations will typically vary. They range anywhere from $30 to $500. Any and all donations of any amount, are greatly apprecaited!
This Year's Beneficiary is a husband who just completed 10 years of service with the US Marines. He moved his family into this area to receive proper medical care for a life-threatening illness that his wife is battling. They have two young children. We hope to provide more information, but need first to obtain permission from the family to do so.
