Mainspring Golf Scramble

Benefiting Underserved Children in Austin

What could be better than playing a fun round of golf on a beautiful golf course on a crisp, fall afternoon? How about giving some of Austin’s most economically disadvantaged young children a chance at entering kindergarten equipped to succeed? Participating in the 1st Annual Mainspring Schools Golf Scramble allows you to do BOTH!

Proceeds from this golf event go to

the Rudi Andrus Scholarship Fund of Mainsprings Schools.

 

Where:  Falconhead Golf Club
15201 Falcon Head Blvd, Austin, TX 78738
Food, drinks, and merriment to follow in the pavilion

Cost: $250 per golfer
Minimum $150 goes to our scholarship fund

Sponsorship & volunteer opportunities available! 


 

A LITTLE ABOUT THE RUDI ANDRUS SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Approximately 75% of children attending Mainspring School are from families living below the poverty level and receive tuition assistance from various sources. Without this scholarship fund, families would have to withdraw from Mainspring and likely have no other place to turn for quality preschool education and childcare.

Rudi Andrus, Executive Director of Mainspring from 2006-2017 never wanted a child to have to leave the school because of temporary financial difficulties.  Because of her kindness, generosity, and dedication to the families of Mainspring, the Rudi Andrus Scholarship Fund was established in her honor upon her retirement.

LEARNING STARTS HERE LUNCHEON

2Gen, 1 Future

Supporting children and parents together to ensure life success

 

Featured Speaker_ Carolyn Heinrich

 

The latest research has shown that the best way to help families break out of the trappings of poverty is to work with both the parent and the child. Give a parent educational and professional pathways, as well as social, health and well-being support. Provide children with enriched early education -- while their brains are still forming -- in a caring environment. Together, the generations lift each other up and expand their opportunities for success. This is the 2Gen approach and the Mainspring Model.

Mainspring cares: Making Cards for Children in need of CHEER

Parent Supper will be December 8th, at 5:30. (The organization needs the card well in advance).  We will serve supper for both kids and parents, and childcare will be provided.  Since this is a project our older kids would probably enjoy, you're welcome to choose to keep kids that can participate in the big room with you, instead of having them in childcare.  I would strongly suggest keeping it to 1 kid, though, so you can spend quality time and enjoy yourself, too! (Unless your kids are school aged and are pretty independent)  Keep in mind we will also have things like hot glue guns around.

 

Prior to the event we will need to gather supplies! Starting now, Mainspring is accepting all craft/card supplies that might make for lovely holiday cards. (They do not necessarily need to be Christmas themed, since we can also make cards for The other major holidays happening, or even just general hope themed cards) I'm leaving boxes in the courtyard to gather supplies.  We will be looking for things like:

 

*Card Stock of all colors

*Stickers, Charms, etc 

*glue, glitter, and other adornments

*patterned or textured scrap booking paper

*Gift Cards to buy supplies

 

Any other crafting/scrap booking supplies that could be used for beautiful cards!  Here's the link to their website, to learn more: http://www.cardsforhospitalizedkids.com/

 

I will leave a sign-up sheet on the whiteboard. I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!
