Volunteer Spotlight 2019 - Tracy McKerlie
Tracy McKerlie has been a valuable volunteer with Peyton's Promise, Inc. since our inception in 2015. Each year she provides support where it is needed most for our annual golf outing, and spends several months helping us prepare for it. She will be onsite again this year, helping in a variety of areas to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Below, she has answered a few questions for us, underestimating the work she does and the positive impact it has on the outing year after year. This year she has reached out to hundreds of potential donors and is also busy getting everything in place to serve food not once, but twice, during the outing. She will also be helping to facilitate the online auction. Thank you, Tracy, for your support and for believing in our mission. We appreciate your time and hope you know how much it means to us.
