It is with a great deal of regret that we inform you 2015 was the last year of the Santa’s Sleigh Golf Tournament. The Santa’s Sleigh Inc. board of directors voted November 24 to cease operations as of December 31, 2015 due to staff reductions and a decrease in the volunteer pool and a significant increase in the administrative burdens.
Santa’s Sleigh, Inc. started in 2001 out of a desire to help children living in Oklahoma homeless shelters experience the magic of Christmas. Santa’s Sleigh, Inc., a volunteer organization made up of Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency employees, since inception raised money to purchase and provide 17,887 Christmas gifts for children temporarily housed in homeless shelters in Oklahoma. It is due to your generosity that we have been able to accomplish this feat.
The main source of revenue has been the annual golf tournament. We want to thank everyone who has participated as a sponsor, donor, golfer or volunteer. This generosity has helped us achieve our goal of providing Christmas gifts to homeless children these past 15 years.
President of and on behalf of the Santa’s Sleigh, Inc. Board of Directors
