Marsha has long been involved in fundraising for children’s charities, but over the years, she had a desire to work with kids in a much more hands-on capacity. Knowing she was an avid golfer, a friend introduced her to Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego. That was 10 years ago, and she began working with the girls on a weekly basis. She joined the Girls Mentoring Commit-tee and began doing other activities with the Pro Kids young women beyond just golf. The GMC takes the girls on field trips, gets them involved in civic activities, crafts, cooking and other social enhancing activities.
Ms. Dressel has worked with her husband, Jerry, in his businesses over the years while she was raising children.They are both involved with Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego and have sponsored Home and Home events at Morgan Run.
“It’s fun being outdoors with them playing golf and it’s very motivating to see the progress the girls make, not just on the course, but in life as well,” said Marsha. “It has been rewarding to watch them grow from girls into successful young women.”
