What Happened at Edmarc in June

View More: http://shaunaemmonsphotography.pass.us/picnic-photosThe staff and volunteers were very busy this month!  From speaking engagements to fundraisers we were out day, night, and weekends sharing the good work of Edmarc.

On June 2nd Edmarc was a part of Bayside Harley Davidson’s 80’s Bike Night.  The event was free to the public; there was music, food, and giveaways!  Proceeds from the event were donated to Edmarc.  When it was all said and done we raised almost $700 to support our mission.  Special thanks to Maurice Slaughter and everyone at Bayside Harley Davidson along with our awesome volunteers of The Bell Tree, Andrew and Janet for letting us be a part of this amazing event!

On June 6th The Miller Oil Foundation held their Annual Chairman’s Reception at the home of Gus and Deana Miller.  Each year they partner with a local nonprofit to highlight their collaboration at the reception.  This year, The Miller Oil Foundation chose to partner with Edmarc.  Together we put together a fabulous silent auction and raised over $10,000!  Our staff and volunteers had a chance to reconnect with some old friends and make so many new ones too!  The fun did not stop there because on Tuesday, The Miller Oil Foundation held their Annual Golf Tournament.  We truly appreciated our time together and were honored to have been chosen to partner with such an outstanding local Foundation that makes a huge difference in our community. 

On Wednesday, staff joined our dear friends of the Naval Civilian Manager’s Association at Bid-A-Wee Golf Course for their Annual Brass and Wheel Tournament.  The event went off without a hitch and a check was presented to Edmarc for $500!

Then we teed up again on June 13th  for  LPI Technical Annual Golf Tournament benefiting Edmarc.  Our special thanks to John MacKenzie and the team at LPI for once again putting on a first class tournament!

Edmarc Board of Director, Vice President, Nancy King attended the Suffolk Business Women’s Annual Dinner at which time they presented a $6,000 check to support the good work of Edmarc.  We give heartfelt thanks to all the members for this incredibly generous                                                                          donation!

The Yorktown Rotary held their Annual Edmarc family weekend.  Two families enjoyed a weekend filled with food, fishing, games, and fun!  We are blessed to have the Yorktown Rotary’s continued support!  Thank you for helping making memories that will last a life-time!
