The Forest Hills Golfathon will benefit Forest Hills Lutheran Christian School (FHLCS) and our mission to “Build the Kingdom of God through Christian Education.”

This may sound crazy, and you may think we’re nuts, but WE NEED YOU to smash 100 golf balls with us on Saturday, Nov 3, 2018 from 9 am to noon at Topgolf in Hillsboro. With nominal participation from 40+ Champion volunteers our goal is to raise $50,000 (or more) in the next several weeks to support FHLCS and help provide the resources needed to equip students to be servant leaders in the world, and heirs of eternal life.  

We have made a commitment and need your help! We need you to join our team making the following three commitments:


  • Put Saturday, Nov 3 on your calendar to join us at Topgolf 9 am to noon to smash 100 golf balls and enjoy indulgent fun and food!  
  • Sponsor yourself for $100 ($1/ball) or more, payable in advance, and strive for a fundraising pledge goal of $3,000 (couples) $2,500 or $1,000 (first-timer)..
  • Give the ultimate effort to contact 25+ friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc., asking them to sponsor you and strive for your pledge goal.  This is much easier than you think, as people will be more than happy to support your effort and the goals of FHLCS. This can be done in less than 5 hours (and we'll show you how).

People give to people…so all you have to do is ask, and together we can make a big difference!

You can also be a “Team Captain”!  We need 10+ Team Captains to accomplish the above 1 – 2 – 3 and put together a team of four participants (including yourself) and coach them up to success.


What if I don’t golf?  No problem! Topgolf is fantastic, casual and fun for beginners. Check out the Topgolf experience below and see for yourself.

What if I can’t be there on Nov 3?  No problem!  Simply be a NON-GOLFING PARTICIPANT. Follow the same plan, pledge $100 (or more) and reach out to your network to get sponsors who will help you help FHLCS. We (or you) can get someone else to fulfill your 100-ball challenge (if you can join us for brunch on Nov 3).

How is this organized?  This is a well-organized and fun campaign. The Golfrathon website is the key to our success. It’s the easy-to-use place where you enter your sponsor’s pledge information, and it does all the administrative work for you. Our site will send them a thank you note, tax deductible letter, and details on how/where they can pay their pledge. Easy as a tap-putt!
