Las Campanas Compadres 2014 Fundraiser Recap

The annual LCC Online Auction, Pasta Dinner, and Triathlon Super-Sprint race day bring together the most generous and amazing people. They donate the best of themselves to support those with a passion to keep the Las Campanas Compadres riding and swimming programs running strong and available to the community’s disabled.

Alongside the intricacies of running the year-round programs, the annual fundraising is also a continuous effort and is a multi-faceted endeavor to execute initial fundraising plans. Under the leadership of founders, Lawrence and Suzanna Becerra, the fundraiser events intentionally set out to care for others by providing a means to repeatedly create something good and positive in every LCC lesson provided throughout the year.

There are delegated organizational steps by a few that burgeon into the involvement and contribution of time, talents, and funds of many. The initial fundraising plans and goals unfold into a myriad of communication: networking, radio broadcasts, poster designs, printed publicity, online announcements, phone calls, and mailings.

A tremendous gathering of incredibly generous world-class donations in the form of trips, services, and specialty items foster an enthusiastic response from bidders for the LCC online auction. Memories of the incredible flavors and sweet ambience of the Pasta Dinner combine with the powerful visions conjured by a hero’s words and the night’s impromptu and lucrative auction. The professional photos of participants, volunteers, and families on the bright sunlit morning of the Triathlon Super-Sprint personify the excitement, the motivation, and the energy expended to keep the LCC programs robust. The goal-accomplished and happy smiles on the faces of the students and families of the LCC programs certainly buoy the willingness and generosity of those who come together to contribute in various and important ways to make the annual fundraising events a success.

Auction winners who bid to support LCC now enjoy fabulous prizes. Those who broke bread with Master Sgt. (retired) Leroy Petry at the Pasta Dinner listened to him in awe, and became heroes themselves by supporting LCC programs. By now, medals are on display and cheers for the swimmers, bicyclists and runners of all ages are an echoing memory of community spirit and camaraderie. There are no adequate words that can express the measure of gratitude felt for the many that rally and offer what they have to meet the needs of people who accomplish life-satisfying challenges through the no-fee therapeutic activities Las Campanas Compadres offers.

The success of 2014 LCC Labor Day Triathlon Super-Sprint fundraiser events goes beyond the annual LCC fundraising goals. The success categorically signifies that something meaningful and far-reaching in our community has happened again. With tremendous thankfulness and deep appreciation for all who so generously continue to give of themselves, Las Campanas Compadres looks forward to another year of program growth and the continued fulfillment of “People Helping People Reach New Heights”.
