Dunk tank helps raise funds for a good cause

COBB – On Aug. 9 Rob Roy Golf Course had its first “Red, White, and Brew” event to raise funds for RAKE, Random Acts of Kindness and Encouragement and Literacy for Golf.


The event, which ran from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., featured several wineries from Lake County which poured their wines, along with food vendors, local artisans and music.


There also were games and a dunk tank. The resort's owners, John and Colleen McDonald, tried to convince businesswoman Kathy Fowler to go into the tank, an idea Fowler didn't take to at first.


But after the McDonalds went in, Fowler offered to follow if she could raise $500 for the Lake County Resource Center's Freedom House domestic violence shelter project.


The challenge proved irresistible to those attending the event, who pitched in to raise the $500, and Fowler went in.


It was the resort's chef who finally hit the paddle and sent Fowler into the water.
