The Women &Children's free restaurant and Community Kitchen is a vital safety net that fills nutritional gaps for women and children in need across our area. The key component is the WCFR provides service with dignity and respect both within the community and kitchen.
This mission statement is one the of the many good reasons The Washington Association of Landscapers decided to make the Women & Children's Free Restaurant the beneficicary of their golf tournament. I recently had a chance to talk with one of the chairs of the tournament, Derek Collett ,to find out why he's so passionate about this charity.
Q: Tell me your roll in the charity golf tournament?
A: Myself and Micah Leavitt are co-chairs of the WALP/WCFR Charity Golf Classic. Ourselves plus other committee members of Washington Association of Landscape professionals have worked to put together the team format, acquiring donation/auction items, and marketing of the event!
Q: How did you guys choose the WCFR?
A: We researched to find a 100% local charity with all proceeds to stay within the community. Through our research WCFR stood out. Because of their dedication to families in need we thought it was the perfect fit for what WALP wanted to do within the Spokane community.
