Drive FORE $1 Million
After giving away over $150,000.00 in love offerings this year, it is obvious we are charging towards a date when we will give away ourÂ ONE MILLIONTHÂ dollar. We are currently right at $900,000.00 which has been sent to families fighting cancer since our charity began in 2000. Needless to say, our efforts have made an impact and we all know we still have more work to do.
The Granite Desk Plaque Project
Kerry Gilbow, Jim Rainey, and Mark Booker have taken on a granite desk plaque project. The idea came about when Gilbow came to us and wanted to sell PINK bricks with the 18 FORE Life logo on them, and literally put them in peopleâ€™s homes in place of a normal brick! This idea proved to be a bit much to undertake, but led to the idea of selling granite desk plaques for $1000.00. The person buying the item will have the opportunity to give us a name of a person fighting cancer and know that this donation will end up in their hands as they battle this disease. The boys have already sold 20+!!! The idea has jump started a drive to raise more money and give away our 1 Millionth dollar by our June 2013 golf event! We know we can do it.
