Anyone can tell the ladies of the SaddleBrooke Women’s Golf Association (SBWGA) and Niners are up to something… the question is, What? Let’s face it, they’re handing us this year’s Bee-Cuz We Care Cancer tournament on a silver platter— making it so easy and cheap, we’d be nuts to pass it up! For the bargain basement price of $30 we can play either a nine or eighteen-hole scramble, or forget the golf part altogether and just grab a few pals and come for lunch! (They know us well, don’t they?) And, speaking of lunch, the kitchen must be in on the plot because they’re pulling out all the stops for us too!
No pesky handicaps or memberships to concern ourselves with, and no partner? No problem! They’ll get one for us! They’re luring us in with exciting, one of a kind raffle items, and the icing on the cake, we’ll get to meet Chrisie Funari, founder and CEO of The Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children and hear her inspirational story.
As if all that isn’t enough to cry UNCLE and sign up, Troy and his pro shop gang are offering us reduced greens fees to boot!
It’s plain they’re all in cahoots, and now we know why.
They’re looking to build a treehouse, and they’re hoping we’ll pitch in.
Our special luncheon guest, Chrisie Funari, is the driving force behind this latest project to help families with children stricken by cancer.
Having lost her own five-year-old daughter, Ava, to pediatric cancer, Chrisie is well aware of the horrific diagnosis can swallow a family whole with its immediate, unrelenting demands to focus only on “What next?” There is little if any room in the terrifying new landscape for the children to experience the freedom, joy, and sheer goofiness of being kids.
The Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children provides support, assistance and encouragement to these devastated families, and now, with our help, will be able to provide some much-needed fun for the kids as well.
Ava’s Tree House will be a unique, state-of-the-art facility to include an indoor play area, music room, sport court, K9 therapy room, and more, a place where kids with cancer can be kids.
Together we can help Chrisie and her foundation, The Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children build Ava’s Tree House by signing up for the 2019 Bee-Cuz-We Care Cancer tournament scheduled for Dec. 17.
Look for the sign-up form with details on the pro shop bulletin board in late October.
