The generosity of the Island Country Club membership is overwhelming. We just closed the Charitable Foundation’s May 2020 $20,000 matching fundraising drive for “Our Daily Bread”, the local food pantry. Island Country Club members hit it out of the park.
The ICC Charitable Foundation board raised $20,000 and our club members not only matched but exceeded that amount by raising an additional $76,000, for a grand total of $96,000 to buy food for the needy and unemployed.
Here is what $96,000 means to Our Daily Bread. When we started our fund raiser they were providing food to 300 families weekly. That’s up from a pre-COVID-19 norm of 100 families per week. The new norm is 650 families or roughly 2600 people. Their food costs have tripled. Our funds will cover the increased food costs for the next 4 to 5 months. Hopefully by that time many of these people will be back to work.
Continuing their generous giving, Island Country Club members gave a record amount in support of the 2019 “Joy of Giving” program, allowing the ICCCF to write a check for $75,000. Click Here to see what your donations accomplished.
2019 Island Country Club Charitable Foundation “Legends of Golf” Tournament
Unlike 2018, Fortune did not smile on the 2019 ICCCF Charity Golf Classic with the forecast rain coming in with a vengeance! The golf event was cancelled but golfers were given a “rain check” (how appropriate!) for a round of golf at a later date.
The post-tournament celebration went off as scheduled, and the Island Country Club culinary department pulled out all the stops for a fantastic menu including raw bars, carving stations and a margarita bar. Silent and live auctions as well as the 50-50 raffle enjoyed great participation by the members present, and resulted in the ICCCF exceeding its target. This translated into additional money available for grant requestors, and the Foundation was able to continue it’s mission of supporting education, health and human services on Marco Island.
