Panda + Community – August 2016
August ended up being a little bit quieter, which was actually kind of nice for a change of pace.
Team Panda was out at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of St Thomas Elgin Annual Golf Tournament. We were not the most successful golfers on the course but we had a lot of fun and the weather was fantastic – so we ended up enjoying the walk around the course! 🙂
The Smart Panda (OurOnline.Company) is the title sponsor this year for our local Big Brothers Big Sisters, so it was great to get out and support them as they raised a significant amount of money to put towards their in school mentoring programs and also to support their Big/Little matches. Currently over a hundred kids are getting mentored, and there is no way to ever measure the impact of being involved in a young person’s life as they walk through the challenges of simply being a kid. At The Smart Panda we work with the theory that you have to have a Trusted Partner (or Mentor) to get you through the challenges.
In the pictures below you will see a helicopter, which was also at the Golf Event and they dropped 2000 golf balls for Big Brothers Big Sisters “Big Ball” Drop. The ball closest to the hole (or in the hole) won $2000. The local helicopter training academy does the helicopter drop which is actually pretty cool to watch!
The Rotary Club is gearing up for a busy fall and winter season. Once the weather starts to get cold we will be back helping Inn-Out-Of-The-Cold serving up great food and helping some very deserving people. The Rotary Club and The Smart Panda will be out working with Christmas Care again this year. Wade is on the board of Christmas Care this year to help ensure that everybody at Christmas can have a great Christmas.
