2014 Fundraiser

 2014_kidsOn Saturday, April 26, 2014 at Superstition Springs Golf Resort in Mesa, Arizona, Gamma Mu held its “Inaugural Fundraiser for Gamma Mu Educational Services, Inc.”  Gamma Mu Educational Services, Inc. (GMES, Inc.) is a non-profit entity of Gamma Mu Boule’.   Funds from this event will be used to support the programs of Gamma Mu Educational Services, Inc (GMES, Inc.) whose mission is to provide leadership development and mentoring for young boys and men in the Metro-Phoenix area.

Under the leadership of Committee Chair Archon Ray Burden, the golf tournament proved to be incredibly successful, with net proceeds exceeding $40,000 – far exceeding the original goal of $30,000.  A significant portion of the proceeds were raised through corporate sponsorships including companies and organizations such as: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Morgan Stanley, Arizona State University, CopperPoint Mutual and Grand Canyon University. 

While Archon Burden provided the overall leadership for the event he reached out to a number of Gamma Mu Archons to make up his winning team: Tim Woods – operations, Don Bland – sponsorships, John Harris – contests, Kenny Harris – volunteers, Kevin Robinson – donations, and Larry Leverett – tournament advisor.  The tournament also received the full support of the Archousai of Gamma Mu who assisted in a number of areas including serving as welcome ambassadors and managing the prizes and awards.  Additionally, Gamma Mu was pleased that several youth groups from the Valley attended and served as volunteers at the golf tournament. See photo gallery here.
