First we want to thank you for supporting our 5th Putting for Parkinson’s Event!
We have been working hard to put together an event that you will enjoy and want to come back to next year. If you have paid for them, we put Dinner and Auction Tickets in the mail today. Please make sure to bring your ticket(s) with you to limit any confusion when you arrive. As a golfer, you do not need a ticket since you will come straight from
the course. Please don’t forget to call Debbie and pay if you haven’t done so already.
For our golfers, I want to remind you of several options you have the day of the tournament. As noted in the Information Packet, you will have the option to purchase
a Golfer Package (2 Mulligans, 1 Hole-in-One Entry, and 1 Raffle ticket) for a $20 donation or a Junior Golf Package (1 Mulligan and 1 Raffle ticket) for a $10 donation, and a Hole-in-One Entry for a $5 donation. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased with donations of $5 for one or $20 for 5. We have some great raffle prizes again this year, including a Kindle Fire and an Orion Grill!
We also will have Dixon Golf (http://www.dixongolf.com/) on one of the Par 3’s with their Dixon Golf Experience. For $10 (cash at the hole), you can participate in their Dixon Golf Challenge using one of their eco-friendly golf balls. Just for participating in the challenge, they will give you hundreds of dollars worth of prizes, and if you hit their ball onto the green, you get a sleeve of their eco-friendly balls! The added benefit for our event is that we will get a portion of the $10 participation fee.
For our Dinner and Auction Guests. Don’t forget to bring your wallets to bid on the great items we have for our auction. We have restaurant gift certificates, tickets to local sporting events, artwork, trips, and more. We have items for everyone with low starting bids on up to starting bids in the thousands! Remember, we do take credit cards! Also, in case you missed it above, raffle tickets can be purchased with donations of $5 for one or $20 for 5. We have some great raffle prizes again this year, including a Kindle Fire and an Orion Grill!
Again, thank you for supporting our event and the research being done on Parkinson’s at The Murray Center at MUSC! One last reminder, for everything mentioned above (except the Dixon Golf which is cash only at the hole), we will accept cash, check, and/or credit cards (MC, Visa, Amex) on Saturday. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
Happy New Year! I hope your year is off and running with you being able to keep your new year's resolutions! If you resolved to be more involved with your community, to give back, and/or to be more philanthropic, then Putting for Parkinson's is ready to help you keep your resolution!! We are looking for businesses and individuals to help sponsor, donate to (including items for the auction and raffle), and support our event coming up on April 27th. This year marks special anniversaries for both Coach Touchberry and our event. For Coach Touchberry, it was 10 years ago in 2003 that he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and this year marks our 5th year of raising money to help fund research that is being done right in the Lowcountry at the Murray Center of MUSC! With your help, we have been able to raise more money with each succeeding year and hope to continue that tradition! Please let us know how we can help you be part of this year's event!
Keeping you up to date on our p4p happenings!
