Regional Director’s Message

A Message from Regional Director Ross Egge

Spring is here…it must be by now. We’ve had an interesting expanded winter here in the NW and I’m excited for the hope…and sun, that spring promises. We have had a wonderful start to the new year. But are looking forward to what is close on the horizon. Namely, our Faces of Hope gathering on March 28th! We will be celebrating the retirement of Donna Egge from her role as Director of Family Services for NPH and learning more about the impact investing in the lives of these children has had on the world and the communities in which we work. We are having our traditional luncheon as well as an evening reception program for those who can’t steal away to join us for lunch. It will be an exciting and compelling program as always to be sure, but will also be an opportunity to thank Donna and celebrate what she has meant to the NW and to NPH as a whole. This is a great introductory gathering for anyone who might want to learn more about our work to address some of the root causes for so much of the turmoil facing these countries by taking the long and strategic approach in support of children, single mothers and families. This work is making an incredible difference and we get to be a part of that. Join us, be inspired, get involved.

Our NPH Golf tournament is also coming up on May 30th. Past Seahawk Cliff Avril, and Jason Puckett will be broadcasting their Cliff and Puck show from the tournament. Cliff has long supported important work in his home country of Haiti and we’re grateful he can join us to help draw attention to the current crisis and look for ways to help. If you golf…even just a little…it is a phenomenally fun day with lots of food, drink, golf and prizes. And it’s for a cause that truly matters and makes a difference. Get a foursome together, have your business join us as a tournament sponsor (KJR shoutouts included), or come individually.

We’re excited for our trip back down to Honduras this summer in July (14-21). There is still some space available, so if you’ve ever thought about seeing the work first hand, meeting your sponsored child, or simply want to go back to visit this magical place, please let us know.

Thank you for all that you do and for keeping the children of NPH in your hearts, especially those in Haiti and Nicaragua where the level of unrest continues to put the future we are working to build with them at risk.

With gratitude,

Ross Egge
