This year’s generous Title Sponsor, Lemoine Wright of Wright Construction Co., Inc., pictured with GRACE CEO Shonda Schaefer.


Our twilight tee-off event was magical!  The night began with Board Member Sean Shope of First Financial who was gracious to do our invocation as CEO Shonda Schaefer gave the 100 plus players a good luck send-off following a delicious dinner.

Over 100 people signed their teams up for our nighttime golf event and enjoyed not only putting contests and golfing in the dark, but also fantastic raffle prizes, food & drinks, making for an unforgettable night.

The combined efforts of all who attend, contribute and volunteer raise funds for seasonal programs such as Christmas Cottage, one of GRACE’s hallmark initiatives that allow struggling families to select Christmas gifts for their children while maintaining the parents’ dignity in a unique, store-like setting. Last year the program made the holidays bright for over 2,700 family members.

Funds from Drive Into The Night also supports our Feed Our Kids Program.  In the summer months, Feed Our Kids serves at-risk youth with free meals to offset the cost and avoid the risk of children going without a meal while school is not in session.
