FTSV hosted an Appreciation Day on August 12th

On Saturday, August 12th, First Tee – Silicon Valley (FTSV) hosted an Appreciation Day event at Rancho del Pueblo Golf Course. The event was a celebration of our FTSV families, participants and coaches, and an opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for them. We had over 140 people in attendance. Thank you so much to all that came out, and thank you for being a part of First Tee – Silicon Valley.

There were many fun games setup. On the putting green, we setup our Mission ImPuttable game, which are really challenging and fun putting holes where you can play against your friends. We had the driving range open for people to hit and clubs for people to borrow. There was also a tug of war, a sack race, and cornhole, and winners of any of our games could claim prizes from our prize tent. Near the end of our event, we provided pizza, dessert, and highlighted our CEO & President George Maxe for his 15-year anniversary with FTSV!

While the games were fun, the biggest success was people from throughout our FTSV community meeting each other and making connections. Because we have three different locations and many different days of class, often times families, coaches and volunteers are not easily able to meet and interact with others in the program. However, at Saturday’s event, FTSV families and coaches from throughout the South Bay had the opportunity to build relationships with each other. People were laughing, talking and having fun all while building connections to one another and helping to expand on the sense of community that we try to foster. We will be hosting more community and appreciation days at Rancho del Pueblo for all to attend and hope to have everyone come out. Until next time!
