Thanks to an undisclosed but sizable donation from Servpro of Fairfield, youths from the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club will get to attend a safe Halloween-themed golf tournament at Scandia, in Cordelia, on Oct. 24.
The event, sponsored by the Optimist Club of Solano County, formerly known as the Vacaville Optimist Club, and Scandia Family Fun Center. Youths are slated to enjoy "ghoulish nibbles," compete for awards for best costumes and team, and enter a spooktacular raffle contest.
The contribution came about during a Little Wing Connections Monthly Business Networking Luncheon at the Courtyard Marriott in Fairfield, organizers said. Servpro representative Kimi Blaine was inspired to sponsor children to play at the Optimist Club's Miniature Golf Tournament after hearing Anna Eaton, VNBGC executive director, speak. She approached Servpro owners, Sherry and Kelly McLean and Tom Swain, and the donation subsequently was made.
"Kids are the future," said Sherry McLean. "Not every child has the same opportunities, so when there is a way to help out, it's our place to stand up and fill the gap for them."
