September: Third Party Updates

Charity Challenge of Champions

Charity Challenge of Champions graciously selected NWAWS as their charity recipient for their 26th year of the event. This event spanned six days and featured a Run for Courage, Tennis Tournament, Golf Tournament, and social activities all aimed at providing a unique way to merge fun, sports, and supporting NWA residents in need.

Saturday night an NWAWS outreach client courageously shared her story with attendees in a moving testimony of abuse and restoration that she has found through support like what the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter offers. Thank you to everyone who listened to her story and showed her love and support.

Final numbers are not yet in, but all funds raised will support NWAWS clients as they work to rebuild their lives.

Ozark Off-Road Adventure

Every other year the Ozark Off-Road Club donates the proceeds from their Ozark Off-Road Adventure to the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter and this year saw some amazing growth for the club and the event! The club is made up of 150+ off-road adventurers and the event is a three-day long gathering in Pineville, Missouri that features family fun, the outdoors, and every off-road activity imaginable.

This super-friendly hobby group is always so much fun to work with (even more so when they take the Executive Director out for an off-road spin)! The final amount raised will be announced in October, but at this point OORA estimates $15,000 was raised in support of our clients and programs.

Thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers, and donors who made these 3rd Party events successful this year. We look forward to on-going collaborations with both groups!
