Dina and Bill were friends of SAME Cafe from the very beginning…weeks after the Cafe opened they were one of the first golfers to sign up for the First Annual SAME Cafe golf tournament and boy did we had fun! There were 30-40 people there and we were pleased as punch to raise a couple thousand dollars. After the event Dina and Bill were the first ones on board to plan for the next year. They committed to help recruit golfers, prizes and money…and they did not disappoint! We had “golf meetings” that usually involved food and drinks and hours of fun! We made adjustments to our “plans” and ended up with an even more successful event the next year! And the next and the next…until Dina and Bill decided to take on the leadership of what developed into the Golf Tournament Committee. They are in year two of that leadership role and have done an outstanding job! They work tirelessly to make the golf tournament happen and had the courage to make changes (like the venue change) that have enhanced the tournament to a level we only dreamed of when we had the very first event 6 years ago!
Dina and Bill live and work in Greeley Colorado and try hard to be present at the Cafe throughout the year, not just during the golf tournament.They make countless trips to Denver to plan and prepare for the event. Dina, a native of Denver brings her friends to the Cafe for lunch or private parties and recruits her family to play or volunteer in the tournament! Bill does a great job of recruiting his family and friends to travel hundreds of miles for SAME Cafe and convinces numerous co-workers to drive an hour and a half to support this event! They both believe in SAME Cafe and the mission of providing a meal to anyone regardless of their ability to pay! They are outstanding people, both with an impeccable work ethic! Thanks to Dina and Bill, the golf tournament has raised over 32,000 since it’s very first year. Dina and Bill, we appreciate your time and talent and the hard works it takes to pull off an event of this magnitude! We appreciate YOU!
