Putting for the Bunnies – Thank you!

Thanks to All Who Attended Putting for the Bunnies – This second annual miniature golf outing was a great success!! The weather was perfect, the food was excellent, and fun was had by all! The event was sponsored by Dr. Jon’s Handcrafted Soap (www.drjons.com) – the company owned by wonderful OHRR volunteer, Kim Eplin and her husband, Jon. Through registration, the raffle, and donations, over $1200 was raised for the bunnies. Thanks to Dr. Jon’s, to Kim Eplin, Barb Armitage, and Pat Barron, who planned the event and gathered food and raffle prizes, and to all who volunteered at Putting for the Bunnies!

Workplace Donation Opportunities

Many OHRR volunteers and supporters extend their impact for OHRR by giving thru their workplace. We have supporters who give through major Columbus employers such as Chase, Battelle, IBM, Verizon, Nordstrom, Nationwide, and via United Way.  Sometimes, that gift (or one you make directly to OHRR) can be matched by your employer, multiplying the impact for the bunnies!

In another example of a way to give, one of OHRR’s long-time volunteers, Chris Baker, arranged for OHRR to be the charity of the month as a part of her employer’s, (Nexeo Solutions) Great Place To Work group, Chris’ colleagues combined to donate $750 to OHRR.

Also, Kim Eplin, a Lead Volunteer at the Adoption Center, and her husband Jon, who own their own company (https://www.drjonshandcraftedsoapco.com) have not only sponsored OHRR’s Putting for the Bunnies event, but have also designated a portion of their profits from January 2017 to OHRR.

We thank everyone who has given through their workplace and encourage you to look into the possibility!
