Reflections 2008

A look back at some of the people and events that shaped 2008

It’s hard to believe that we are already into the 2nd month of the New Year. But before we introduce some of the new organizations and events that we plan on sponsoring this year, we’d like to take a moment to recognize some of the people and events that shaped our 2008.

RCC Golf ClassicThere’s nothing we enjoy more than the opportunity to support the charitable organizations of our partners and participants — especially when the event takes place on a sunny afternoon at the course. This year we participated in several golf outings that benefited both local and national organizations including the ProPlayers Foundation Golf Classic, the 21st Annual Richardson Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic (with Dave Peters of Third Power’s Advisory Board), the Cornerstone Youth Golf Tournament, and finally, the 25th Annual Kiwanis Klassic Golf Tournament.

But long after the memories of searching for misdirected golf balls have faded; and the pain from our swing, or watching the swing of a few of our colleagues has subsided, there were a few other events that will soon not be forgotten. The NorthCare Foundation hosted its annual Gala event for its Clothe-A-Child Program, and Third Power was there in full support. Celebrating its 20th year of its grass roots efforts, the organization had its best year ever, even in one of history’s worst economies. Enough funds were raised to clothe over 1100 children in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Change was a resounding theme politically in the later part of 2008, and for us here at Third Power, we are hard pressed to think of a more life-changing event then our visit to Roatan Island in Honduras. We traveled to the Island with Joe King, President and CEO of Kids Matter International (KMI), to visit the future site of the KMI Empowerment Center for Children in Crisis. In Honduras, and especially Roatan, the immense need for nurturing the plight of abused and abandoned girls that was once ignored is now being recognized and addressed by KMI — and we couldn’t be happier to be active participants and supporters in the development of this center.

In closing, we’d like to thank all of our participants, friends and partners for their support in 2008 and we look forward to sharing our continued success with you in 2009.
