1st Annual Golf for Grace

Hi Everyone,

Grace's Fund Team has been busy planning our 1st Annual Golf for Grace. We are in the process of uploading registation forms to Grace's website but in the mean time I wanted to inform everyone of the details so that you can start spreading the word and assembling your foresomes. The tournament will be held at Springfield Golf and Country Club in Guelph on Saturday May 24th (this is NOT the long weekend) in the afternoon. It's an easy drive and is located just a few min. north the 401 on Brock Rd. The cost is $500 a foursome (that's $125 each) and includes golf with cart, a BBQ chicken & rib dinner as well as the opportunity to win GREAT prizes. Each player will be issued a tax receipt for $55.00. We are looking for hole sponsorship. To sponsor a hole is $250 and if you would like to run a contest on your hole, just provide the prize and we will do the rest. A tax receipt for $250 will be issued for each hole sponsorship. Our efforts have raised over $55,000 for brain tumour research at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. We are hopful that in 2008 we can exceed $100,000 via this golf tournament and our walk in the fall. This year b.r.a.i.n.child (the organization at the hospital that Grace's Fund belongs to) is funding projects such as "Improving the communication during the palliative care of children with brain tumours" and "Investigation of a novel tumor suppressor gene in human brain tumours" and "Genetic determinants of predisposition to childhood brian tumour initiation and progression" as well as many others. THIS IS IMPORTANT WORK! And we can continue to make a positive impact via our fundraising efforts. Please contact me via Email at for a registration form. If you would like to sponsor a hole or would like to solicite a company to sponsor a hole on our behalf, please also Email me. I have a letter that I've written explaining our efforts as well as other applicable info that most companies require.

Thanks in advance for your continued support. We are making a difference!

Mama misses you baby.
