“Many hands make light work “– John Heywood

This quote has never been truer than last week when we put on our largest event of the year. For two days First Story spent time with supporters having fun and raising support for deserving families at our annual charity bash and golf tournament. For the last 9 years, Tetherow Resort in Bend, Oregon provided a first-class venue, a world-renowned golf course and top notch service. Wow, what a marvelous job they did!

This two-day event celebrates the conclusion of First Story’s annual fundraising campaign. It consumes an entire week at the resort – tons of moving pieces and a million little details - it is no small undertaking. It takes a small army of volunteers and Tetherow staff to pull off this one-of-a-kind event and, like every year, Tetherow was up to the challenge. The entire resort staff, from catering to golf to sales, delivered world-class service. Every single person we encountered was helpful, and not just helpful – eager. The staff went above and beyond the call.

We feel incredibly grateful to have this special event at this beautiful resort. We absolutely could not pull off such a successful, unique and memorable event without the ROCK STARS at Tetherow and, because of that, we salute them with this month’s First Story Hi-Five. Thanks, Tetherow!
