Greetings, Dear Friends.
We look forward to this annual reunion to reconnect with so many friends and family on July 24, 2017 at the 4th Annual Drew O’Donoghue Fund Golf Outing at Stanton Ridge Country Club in Whitehouse Station, N.J. and hope that you’ll be a part of this year’s event.
Over the past three years, The Drew O’Donoghue Fund Golf Outing has proven to be a key element in our fundraising efforts to fight Adrenocortical Cancer (ACC). At the core of the fund’s success is the generous participation of you. You are the heart of this foundation. You are the reason we’ve been able to help directly fund adrenal cancer research at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center under the helm of Dr. Gary Hammer, as well as help initiate the study at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC under the guidance of Dr. Diane Reidy. Our strategy is beginning to take shape and we are continuing to build momentum. In our short time together, we’ve reached, incredibly, the $500,000 mark! This success is your success, and is something that will one day lead to saving lives.
The 2016 outing alone raised over $50,000 and we’re hoping to “raise our game” at this year’s event. But it’s something we can only do with your help. If you’ve joined us in the past, you know that the day combines the joys and frustrations of golf with a wonderful opportunity to spend time with longtime friends, to meet new friends, and to hear directly from Dr. Hammer about his tireless efforts in fighting ACC. If you haven’t been able to join us in the past, we hope that we’ll see you this year! The fire behind The Drew O’Donoghue Fund is kindled within the heart of family, and you are a part of this family; the fuel that the fund runs on is your hope, your dedication, your spirit, and your generosity.
We hope to see you there! Please register today.
In addition to filling all available golf foursomes, we need to make sure we grow our sponsor list to accelerate the fund’s mission. This year we’ve added a “breakfast only” option that we hope will allow us to expand the audience to hear Dr. Hammer speak during the morning session (breakfast is included for golfers). So, even if you don’t golf, please come out and join us for breakfast and to hear Dr. Hammer speak!
Lastly, please pass this along to anyone you might think would be interested in joining us and sponsoring this important event or feel free to reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With our Heartfelt Thanks,
Sean, Lisa, Patrick, Jerry, Jim and Jerry
