Golf Scramble Recap and Upcoming Events

We couldn’t carry out the mission of BsideU For Life without you, our donors, supporters and volunteers. You’ve prayed for this ministry, and supported it with your time and treasure, and we are so thankful for you! You’ve also gotten pretty competitive, and we’re a bit inspired by that. There’s been a long-standing competition between our Rick Bordas Scramble for Life, and our Team Life Bike Ride annual fundraisers, and the gauntlet has definitely been thrown this year by the Scramble for Life supporters!

Golfers arrived at the Audubon country club last month on a beautiful, sunny day to see old friends, meet some new ones, and raise money to support our ministry. It was a record setting day on a few counts. We raised more money this year than in any previous golf scramble! We also had more teams participate than ever, with 37 foursomes playing. We had a generous donation match again this year in honor of our Executive Director’s 54th birthday where every dollar donated up to $5,400 would be matched, and we met the match! The teams enjoyed lunch from Chick-fil-A, and once all the teams were finished playing, we capped the event with a cookout dinner.

We so appreciate each of the players and volunteers that participated in this year’s event, and special appreciation also to all of our event sponsors, including our Title Sponsor, L&N Credit Union, and our Platinum Sponsors, Bachman Auto Group, T & V Enterprises, Andy and Debbie Keith and Zoeller!

Hot on the heels of our golf fundraiser is our Team Life Bike Ride, coming up on Saturday August 13th. The ride starts at the Southeast Christian Church Blankenbaker campus, and you can choose between our 10, 23 or 50 mile routes. Registration opens at 7:30am, and riders can enjoy a breakfast sandwich from Chick-fil-A to fuel them for their ride. Riders can sign up here, where it’s easy to create your own page to raise funds for your ride. While you’re there, you can also track our overall fundraising progress against our goal. Will the riders raise more than the golfers this year? It’s up to you, and the suspense is real!

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our final fundraising event of the year, our annual banquet, which is coming up on Thursday, September 22nd. This year we’ll host at the Louisville Marriott Downtown, and doors open at 6pm. We’re excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Bob Russell, former Senior Pastor of Southeast Christian Church, and founder of Bob Russell Ministries. Save the date, and get your tickets by clicking here. We hope to see you there!

We still have sponsorship opportunities available for both the Team Life Bike Ride and our banquet. If you are interested in sponsoring either of these events, please contact Ellen Hurt at
