Having several family members and friends stricken by breast cancer, both male and female, Tim McKenna of Mariner Sands Country Club knows firsthand the importance of research. Here is Tim’s story.
Mariner Sands is one of the most caring communities in our area and many donations were made by individuals not even playing in the golf tournament. To raise more money, we featured extra contests and activities such as mulligans, closest to the pin, as well as, hit the green, beat the pro, putting contests and raffles. Although we currently run the event on Ladies’ Day, a way to raise additional revenue would be to add a couples’ event, increasing the number of players.
In my thirty years in the golf business, I have helped many wonderful, caring people organize and run special events supporting various charities. I find it to be a very rewarding experience.
