Most of you may remember my past post on "Free Throws for Souls."
This is a ministry that our son-in-law started 5 years ago. He shoots free throws for 24 straight hours and raises money based on how many free throws he MAKES.
This years event was held on March 27th.....and as you can see on the chart below....Tom shot over 22,000 free throws.
While Tom is the one shooting the free throws....He certainly could not do this by himself. He has a lot of help from many people in our community. It takes people who are willing to stand with him...to rebound the ball and to help in various other ways.
People pledge money towards the number of shots that Tom makes...
AND....Donations are made on behalf of this event.
The money has come in.....and I am very happy to announce that...
$29,000.00 is what was raised!
This is more than wonderful.....
$3,000.00 dollars will go toward scholarships for three graduating seniors who meet the criteria for this scholarship.
The rest of the money will go toward "GOD's OPEN HANDS" and "Project Transformation."
As I have said before.....God's Open Hands, feeds thousands of people each year.
The youth from the local Churches come together, along with the leaders....and they build wheel chair ramps, porches, steps and other projects...for those in need.
is an amazing amount of money!
Thank you Tom Booth...
Thank you to our community and to those who were a part of this event!
