It is our pleasure to feature Jeff Anderson from Brookhaven Country Club in Texas as November’s Pro for P.I.N.K. Having been directly impacted by the disease, Jeff is another of our dedicated Pros who realize the importance of raising money for breast cancer.
I have had a handful of family members that have been affected and fortunately have overcome this vicious disease. Seeing them go through this battle is heart-wrenching but support from organizations like Play for P.I.N.K. makes such a huge impact on their lives.
Our club hosts fundraisers throughout the year. For example, we host a weekly Couples event and towards the end of each season have a Play for P.I.N.K. themed event. Players are encouraged to wear pink, decorate their carts and just have fun. All entry fees collected from this event go towards the Annual Play for P.I.N.K. tournament.
We donate raffle items and a gift certificate for complimentary carts for the year. Optional purchases include mulligans, miracle putts, closest to the pins, longest drive, Pro Tee Shot and other contests to engage the members.
Tournaments are all about having fun. The more you can make an atmosphere that people don’t want to miss out on, they’ll keep coming back time and time again. Plus, they’ll bring their friends! Lots of food, lots of music, lots of fun!
It is always a pleasure to be involved with this event as it feels good to be part of something so big that brings people together for such a good cause. We all need to do our part.
