Please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 19th, 2012.
We invite you to join us for our 13th Annual "JC" Golf Tournament to be held at Wapicada Golf Course in St. Cloud. We will again use the "Best Ball-Scramble" format with a shotgun start at 12:30 pm. The afternoon of golf will be followed by dinner, prizes, a silent auction and a dance that evening.
We are pleased to welcome back Green Mill Restaurant, Short Stop Custom Catering and Leighton Broadcasting as major sponsors again this year. The generosity of Green Mill and Short Stop in providing and preparing the evening dinner for all participants will enable us to continue to make a sizable contribution to the IMF. We thank them and their staff for their continued support of our tournament. Thanks to our third major sponsor, Leighton Broadcasting, for their prize contributions and radio advertising of our tournament. Their support enables us to spread the word about our fundraising efforts and create more awareness about Multiple Myeloma and what can be done to help the families affected by this form of cancer.
Last year our tournament raised over $18,000.00 for the International Myeloma Foundation. In the past 12 years of our tournament, we have now raised over $200,000.00 to benefit the IMF and the families of those afflicted with Multiple Myeloma cancer. Our sincere thanks go out to all of our sponsors, cash & prize donators, volunteers and to our tournament and dinner participants for their support, their generous donations and for their participation to help make this fun event such a huge success!
We are also pleased to announce that as a result of your donations to the I.M.F. and your participation in our tournament, a major medical grant has been awarded to Dr. Antonia Cagnetta, a specialist in the field of cancer research,by the International Myeloma Foundation. The grant was awarded in our name,“JC" Golf Tournament, to fund ongoing research in finding a cure and preventing Multiple Myeloma.
Tournament details and invitations will be mailed to you in March. Please let me know if you have any updated e-mail or street address changes for yourself or for anyone else interested in receiving an invitation to golf or to join us for the dinner and dance. Changes, corrections, additions and questions should be e-mailed to: Bob Zins | firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, we ask your help in finding new sponsors and those willing to help us with either prize or cash donations. If you are interested in being a hole sponsor or in making a donation, please contact myself or any of our committee members. All donations, big or small, are welcome and will be used as prizes or silent auction items. In addition, volunteers are always needed for a variety of tasks. If you're interested in lending a hand for a great cause, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you again for our 13th Annual "JC" Golf Tournament on May 19th. Mark your calendars for this fun-filled day of golf, dinner, prizes and dancing. All proceeds go to the International Myeloma Foundation to help fund Education, Treatment and Research for Multiple Myeloma cancer.
