Sponsor Fundraising & Awareness Events
Every year, groups of TPRF supporters have joined together to raise funds for TPRF’s programs or simply to expand awareness about the mission and activities of the Foundation. Sometimes these focus on a specific cause or program and sometimes not. Golfers on four continents have held Benefit Golf Tournaments, often involving local sponsors, and followed by a dinner. In 2011, 23 independent fundraising events were held around the world and raised over $140,000. Other events have increased interest in the Foundation in specific communities, raising general awareness of the Foundation’s work.
Groups sponsoring such events have held concerts, special dinners, picnics, sales, and more—each with its own flavor, reflecting the desire to have fun and help others in the process. While the Foundation does not sponsor these fundraising events, support is available in the way of materials, information, photos, promotion on this site and contact with others who have put on similar events, where possible.

For the pot luck dinner, or “auberge espagnole” as it is known in France, everybody brought one sweet dish and one savory dish and, of course, a bottle of French wine!Read more
