California/Nevada Women of the Moose and Loyal Order of Moose Sports and Activities Committee Working Together
We had a great conference in Reno just a few weeks ago and I can honestly say I have never been so been so proud as I was seeing the men and women come together for one cause. I came into this conference hoping that we could raise $4000.00 for the middle school girls basketball uniforms at Mooseheart. They were in need of 39 home and away uniforms as the current ones had run their course. Being my first time as a state chairman I was optimistic but a little overwhelmed by the task at hand. I had a very enthusiastic committee who were positive that would could achieve our goal. They decorated a great booth we supplied a variety of raffle prizes. One committee person Katie Stone from Vacaville took one for the team and wore a cheerleading outfit and encouraged people to participate in our mini golf activity.
The weekend went like this:
The men's Sports and Activities Chairman Chuck Barber kicked us off by giving us $183.00 from their golf tournament.
Then the first day we raised about $1600.00 from chapter donations and raffle sales and our putting green activity.
By lunch the second day which was the last day to collect donations we were at about $2400 which was about $1600 short from our goal give or take. I then sent a text message to the Association President Joe Rigazio asking for assistance from the men. About 2 hours later we visited the men's meeting and they presented us with $1,090.00 that they had collected from the Loyal Order of Moose members in the room and said the last $500 was on us. I was thrilled. So I went back into the Women of the Moose meeting room made the announcement of what they men had just did and let them know we were just a little short of our goal. Next thing I know co-workers just started coming up to the stage handing me hundreds, fifties, twenties, fives ,ones and checks. It was crazy! Then someone yelled pass a basket. So they did, and they just started dumping money on our table. In those 15 minutes we raised over $1,400.00. I have never seen anything like it. I'm was so shocked I could hardly hold back the tears. It just shows that the men and women of the Moose working together can accomplish anything. Gary Urwiler's response was "WOW, thank you so much" when we told him we had raised $5,140.38.
I just wanted to be clear it was a joint effort by all of California/Nevada and want to give credit where credit is due. I'm excited to be working with Chuck Barber who is the men Sports and Activities Committee Chairman and I'm hoping that we can continue to contribute to the sporting activities at both Mooseheart and Moosehaven in the future.
