The 2011 Dennis James 16th Annual Golf Classic Reception was held Sunday, December 4 at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa benefitting United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire. Kicking off the well-attended evening was MC Fitz Fitzgerald who introduced headlining comedian Josh Blue. Blue, the winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing, has cerebral palsy and many of his jokes have to do with living with his disability, how he deals with it and how other people view him. The next day, a full field of players competed in the 16th Annual Golf Tournament at the Mission Hills Tournament Course.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass in Michigan (bbbsofbc.org) recently had a very successful fundraiser they almost didn't go through with due to staffing obstacles. Winspire worked with the organization to get the event in order, discussing various "Bucket List" items they could use to boost revenue and increase the profile of the auction. They enjoyed the concept of "Bucket List" items so much, they decided to name their event the "Time of Your Life Bucket List Evening Auction", and included multiple unique experience packages from Winspire. The event organizer, Kathryn S. Rossow, was thrilled by how the event turned out and had some kind words she wanted to share...

Winspire is happy to spotlight an upcoming special fundraising event for Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art in Mississippi that has a unique and fun theme this year. The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino will be presenting the 10th Annual George Ohr Gala with a James Bond theme of "Diamonds Ohr Forever." When we think of James Bond, we think of exotic European locations and fast cars. In order to maximize their auction revenue, they have selected a few Winspire packages for their up-coming event that compliment the Bond theme, including: Exotic Supercar Driving Experience and a spectacular trip to Switzerland, Monaco and London. This is the fourth time Winspire has been honored to help support this wonderful museum and their mission.
