Our Charities

Giving Back

The LPGA Amateur Golf Association Eastern Shore MD/DE Chapter is a successful organization and that is all due to our many, many volunteers and our membership, which grows every year.

 We raise money for one large charity, the American Cancer Society, with a Pink Ball Week held in August of each year and our long-running Pink Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament held in October of each year. It’s time we gave back a little more. So, we are adding two more charities—one in Sussex County, Delaware and one in Worcester County, Maryland.

 What is Your Voice – Sussex County

What is Your Voice, Inc.? Peer Support Advocates empower women and children to live violence-free lives. The objective of this organization is to reduce the risk of women or children repeating the cycle of violence or fleeing from violent homes, becoming a statistic of poverty, homelessness, addiction or human trafficking. They provide a holistic approach of healing through intensive aftercare for the whole person--Body, Soul and Spirit--while breaking the cycle of violence within Sussex County, Delaware.

The focus is a holistic view of the initial needs of victims in full crisis, providing support in the journey through the courts or requiring long-term care. They target stabilization in all forms, removal of isolation for community connection, empowerment and economic self-sufficiency. They address financial and health needs, isolation, trauma, PTSD, educational direction or employment, housing needs for temporary shelter and entrance into rental situations.

Diakonia – Worcester County

Diakonia operates two locations in West Ocean City, Maryland where it provides emergency and transitional housing, emergency food services, and counseling and assistance for its residents. More than just a shelter, the organization attempts to address the root causes of homelessness through a variety of programs and initiatives.

For those who are in danger of becoming homeless, for whatever reason, Diakonia offers counseling, guidance and assistance in accessing a wide variety of support programs and, where necessary and appropriate, financial assistance for certain housing-related costs. For those who are homeless, Diakonia offers a roof over their heads as well as counseling and support in addressing the issues that contributed to homelessness in the first place.  Diakonia also operates a food pantry that provides food assistance to hundreds of needy families every month. 

The source of our contributions to these wonderful organizations will come from our 50/50 contests that we hold throughout the year at many of our events. Half of the money that normally goes into our ‘account’ will be spread equally between these two charities.

Magnolia Rifle is collected and curated for the bohemian woman with a classic flair. She’s ahead on the trends, but savors the timeless staples in her wardrobe. Stumbling her way to the next milestone, she’s currently searching for her next creative project. She finds inspiration in the everyday, excitement in simplicity, and opportunity in adventure.

Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I was destined for a career in fashion. My mom was a merchandiser and stylist for a local boutique, and from age 14 to 18, I spent my afternoons styling windows and choosing pieces. Just like the thread in my needle, I was hooked on the industry and anything to do with it.  I started fueling my passion in high school by creating a fashion blog. What began five years ago as an artistic outlet turned into a profitable entity that still exists today!

After high school, I packed my bags and journeyed south, spending four, unforgettable years at Savannah College of Art and Design. Originally enrolled as a fashion design major, I eventually found my true strengths laying in the business side of things. I graduated with a degree in merchandising and moved back home to Ocean City, Maryland.

I worked a few different jobs during my first post-grad year, but couldn’t find anything broad enough to explore all my interests. During college, my partner Harrison and I created content for nationally-recognized brands – photos, campaigns, magazine spreads… The works. But when I went back home, no one was doing that for the little guys. With my fancy new education, I knew I could be that person. And thus, Lt Grey Creative was born.

I’ve been the boss of my own advertising agency for just over a year, and I absolutely love it. Every day I write, design, and brainstorm for small businesses. While I’m very passionate about this work, I never stopped thinking about that boutique I grew up in. One day, I just decided to do it. Follow my dreams. And here we are.



Ms. Efficiency - Professional Organizer

Life is More Fun When You’re ORGANIZED!

Amy Fisher – a.k.a. Ms. Efficiency – a Professional Organizer with over 16 years’ experience helping her clients de-clutter their homes and simplify their lives. Amy grew up in Nebraska, lived in Colorado for 35 years, and has just recently moved to Sussex County.

Late to practice because your kids can’t find their sports gear? Can’t park your car in your garage? Ms. Efficiency has simple solutions to tackle those trouble spots – closets, pantry, garage, attic and mudroom.

Piles of never-ending paperwork taking over your dining room table and kitchen counters? Ms. Efficiency has proven strategies for handling your incoming mail, paying the bills, filing – even kid’s school-related paperwork and artwork.

Unsure about a Professional Organizer? Here are some frequently asked questions:

  1. What does Ms. Efficiency offer that I can’t do myself?  My goal is to help you get started and then break through that feeling of being overwhelmed. Getting (and staying) organized does not come naturally to everyone and we all could use an extra pair of hands. I also help keep you focused – so we stay on task and get the job done! Working together with you, we will come up with a game plan that works for you and your family.
  2. Will you make me get rid of everything?  Never! As your “coach”, I will support you in making decisions about what to keep and “give you permission” to let go of the things you’re holding on to for the wrong reasons. It really does help to have an un-biased, third party there to talk it through.
  3. Do I need to prepare for an appointment? Definitely not for the initial consultation. I need to see the space as is so I can make an accurate assessment of your situation. Don’t worry about any judgments from me – I’ve seen it all!!
  4. How long will it take? How do you charge?  Due to the nature of organizing, it is impossible to be precise about the amount of time required. Some clients are ready and willing to “let go” of the clutter and others might need a bit more hand-holding. I do charge by the hour – I am happy to give you an estimate during our initial consultation and let you know as we progress if that needs to change.
  5. Is the process confidential? Absolutely! It is of the utmost importance! I will ask your permission before posting any “Before and After” photos and any testimonials you have about your experience with Ms. Efficiency. I do have offer a Confidentiality Agreement, if you so desire.
  6. Can you provide references?  You bet!

I know, from personal experience and from 16 years of client feedback, how liberating it is to clear the clutter, reduce excess, and organize the rest! Now that the kids are back in school – and your summer guests have all gone home – it’s the perfect time to take some time and complete a few chores from that To-Do list. The Holidays are right around the corner…

 Call me today for a free consultation!
