The wonderful Country Music Artist Wade Bowen and his team have brought so much to PSI. Wade first wowed us with his song, Turn on The Lights, then surprised us in 2008 with his announcement that he would dedicate the Bowen Classic Concert and Golf Tournament to PSI that year! We have been grateful beyond measure for the gifts of all of our generous donors, and for the energy and outcome of three Bowen Classic Fundraisers. The Bowen Classic was an amazing and successful event for PSI, bringing essential funds and raising awareness at the same time! Wade always inspired us with his generosity, creativity, and just by being him — a sweet and dedicated father, husband, and friend. Wade and friends will be raising the roof and raising money for new organizations now, and we know that their good work will be enhanced and supported as we were.
You can listen to Turn on The Lights here, and watch the inspiring slideshow that Wade and friends made for PSI, and here you can Check out more of his music and his latest tune, Saturday Night — get ready to love it!
Because of Wade and all of our donors, we’ve been able to improve our reach to struggling moms, dads, and families, and to educate providers across the country. Thanks to the Bowen Classsic, and with help from Jenny’s Light Foundation, we were able to produce and distribute our Educational DVD which is now shown across the world to much acclaim, and to create a beautiful CD for Dads from Turn on the Lights. In 2011, we were able to add a Spanish DVD. Without the Bowen Classic, we would not have been able to hire our first Executive Director, increasing our ability to coordinate quality services and outreach programs. Thanks to Wade and all of our donors, we continue to grow in our ability to provide hope and help to families and providers across the world.
