Thank You Brooklyn for Raising Over $17,000 for CCA!
Thank you to Angela, Brent, and "WonderKid" Brooklyn Wojtyniak for hosting their first golf tournament at Fox Creek Golf Course in Livonia, Michigan on August 5th. The Wojtyniak's raised $17,054. Two hundred people participated during the day-long event which included 18 holes of golf, prizes for the longest drives and other acts of excellence on the course. The Wojtyniaks would like to thank John MacFarland of MacFarland and Company Home Sales for their generous donation of many prizes for the golf competition. Each hole was sponsored by a company or individual yielding a $100 donation per hole. CCA and the Wojtyniaks are very grateful for those that played golf, sponsored hole signs, and contributed raffle items.
After the action on the course, everyone gathered for lunch and raffle prizes at the Fox Creek clubhouse. While lunch was delicious, it was the raffle items that drew the most interest by all those in attendance. Angela, Brooklyn's Mom, said, "We had a raffle (approximately 60 raffle items) and a silent auction (25 items) including a Shinola watch, Star Wars Millennium Falcon LEGO set, VIP wine tour at Chateau Chantal Winery in Traverse City, MI just to name a few."
Deb Mato commented on the actives and flow of the day by saying, "We all had a great time with such kind and caring people. The golf, silent auctions, raffle prizes, and delicious food made it a great event! We were happy to support such a worthwhile cause. The supportive “Brooklyn family” is always growing in kindness and love."
The Newton family who participated in the tournament had some kind words for Brooklyn and the Wojtyniak. This bit of feedback truly warms the heart, showing us how Brooklyn was truly at the center of the planning, programming, and spirit of the event. The Newtons say, "It was a B kind-of day; everyone chose kindness. And because of B, we choose kind everyday; for that choice makes us better people. So does loving her. She lives through others like others live through her. Lucky are we to be in her wake, to see Ang’s imagination and Brent’s determination make her into the B she is today, and the one she’ll continue to grow into every tomorrow. August 5th, 2018 was another reminder of how beautiful life can be through the eyes of a child full of wonder."
Thank you again, Brooklyn for spreading love in the best possible ways: to help others in need! Congrats on your successful event. We hope you continue to contribute to CCA with the help of your generous family and friends.
