You are about to become a part of one of the best communities in the nation!
Every year, groups of volunteers from across North America come together to make
miracles happen for kids. The entirely volunteer-run programs donate the proceeds they
raise to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their communities and to charities that
help sick and injured children globally. Models for Miracles is growing and reaching
more lives each year!
At its core, Models for Miracles is about mentoring, leadership development, and
growing future givers. It is about providing opportunities for individuals to be engaged
and connected to an event that is all about helping sick and injured children. Volunteers
spend time organizing the event, recruiting models, and raising money for sick and
injured children. All that work culminates in a fashion show event that not only includes
anyone who wants to model but also provides education and raises awareness about the
services provided by CMN Hospitals (and international charities that help sick and
injured children) to the participants and audience members.
Models for Miracles started in Wichita, KS in 2009 and is an opportunity for individuals
to (1) engage in leadership opportunities, (2) serve their community, and (3) raise money
for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (in North America) and sick and injured kids
globally.
The premise behind Models for Miracles is simple. Create a fun, exciting fashion show
where anyone who wants to model can—regardless of size, experience, age, or
exceptionality. Models each sells tickets to the show and are provided with an outfit or
two from participating boutiques to model in the show.
Models for Miracles is about empowerment, service, leadership, and helping others in our
community. We believe in the power of paying it forward!

(Elkton, Fla.,)- The First Tee started in 1997, with a home office located at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. In just under 20 years The First Tee has expanded to about 200 chapters across the United States and four international locations.

The purpose of The First Tee is to give young people of all backgrounds and opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. The organizations accomplishes this goal by teaching participants about The First Tee Nine Core Values, and Nine Healthy Habits. There are over 300 children actively participating in The First Tee programming, which includes golf and life-skills classes.

One of the main goals of The First Tee of North Florida is to give every child the opportunity to play the sport of golf. The easiest way to support this goal is to become a First Tee of North Florida Ambassador Member. The cost of the membership helps to maintain this goal that no child gets denied access to The First Tee program for an inability to pay.

Some of the benefits of becoming an Ambassador Member are a foursome golf certificate for The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village King and Bear, The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village Slammer and Squire TPC Sawgrass Dye’s Valley Course, all at a discounted price. These are just a few of the benefits that come with being an Ambassador Member of The First Tee of North Florida.

Ambassador Membership costs $125 for an individual membership and $175 for a joint membership.

1 in 8 Americans has Alzheimer’s disease, but they aren’t the only ones affected. 15 million family members provide the majority of in-home care for their loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.


It’s a tough job, not just because the hours are long, but because the disease is complicated. Each stage of Alzheimer’s causes changes in behavior and care needs, so caregivers are always in need of new information and resources.

That’s why the Department of Health and Human Services created alzheimers.gov—one user-friendly online place with all the best information available from government and leading Alzheimer’s organizations.
