Mission Accomplished!

We are still putting a bow on the the official numbers but I can say with confidence that we exceeded our 2008 fundraising goal of $75,000.  This year's event raised ~ $82,000!  Thanks to everyone - primary sponsors (Longbow and the McNichols family, Pay-Tech and Westcor), golfers, auction/raffle donors, monetary donors, Hole Sponsors, volunteers and committee members.  This is a HUGELY SUCCESSFUL effort and we hope that our $$$, coupled with other fundraising events benefitting CNCF, will generate the financial backing needed to find the silver bullet.  On top of all that, everyone seemed to be having a blast...and that is what our event is all about - raising money for Neuroblastoma research and having a great time doing it!

Thanks again to everyone for making the event a success!

Tourney Countdown

Logo02_sm_1 Down the stretch they go!  We are nearing the Fore Noah finish line and our horse seems to be in full stride.  Congratulations - you all have successfully maxed out the golf tee sheet again this year - THANK YOU!  Unfortunately we've had to turn golfers away simply because we were at golf course capacity .  It's a great problem to have but it's still hard to do when people are wanting to give and support the cause.  We'd ask that those people still bring their families out to Longbow Golf Club because the BBQ, kids activities and auction/raffle portion of the day is a blast.  As of today there are 70+ kids attending.  We also have some great auction items on the table this year so prepare accordingly.

We are rounding up volunteers for various activities for day-off event.  If you'd like to participate, let us know ([email protected]) and we'll contact you with details shortly.

Thanks again for everyone's effort in what could shape up to be the best fundraising year yet!
