MCR Charity Golf Tournament
October 3, 2016 at Tijeras Creek Golf Course
Following a two year absence, we are pleased to announce the return of our charity event benefitting PCRF. Through your support and commitment our first 4 events raised over $80,000 to this worthwhile organization, ranking us in the Top 5 events for PCRF. We plan to recapture and improve on that position with your help!
Established by Mike Latham and Cornel Sneekes in 2008, we are pleased to announce TaraAir & Mechanical have joined the team for 2016. “Our sponsors, friends and supporters have enabled us to deliver a unique event not based on trophy’s, prizes or giveaways but rather coming together for a great cause and to give back to the community” Mr. Latham, a board member since 2009, was recently quoted as saying.
Jeri Wilson, Executive Director at PCRF has donated her time each year and shared with our participants success stories of how our collective efforts benefit pediatric cancer research. In 2016, PCRF earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for the third consecutive year. “More than $.80 of every dollar raised makes it directly to pediatric cancer research. Today we know that most cancers have well over 80% survival rate, up from 25-30% from when we first opened our doors at PCRF in 1982”.
As in prior events there will be a putting contest, closet to the pin, and long drive contests as well as the ever popular silent auction dinner where sponsors and players find out who are the best of the best and those who made sure to experienced every area of the course. New this year is a helicopter ball drop!
