  • Golfing Success!

    Well, I just rolled back home and WOW what a day we had!
    The weather could not have been better!!! After about a week of rain here in NJ we worried...but Lori let the sun shine down today...ALL sun and 75-80 degrees all day!!

    It was so nice to meet Howard...who had a great day himself... taking home some really great prizes (including a NEW set of clubs, an autographed Nets Basket ball and more!)

    We set a record, although the final #'s will take a day or 2 to tally... but it looks like we hit over $10,000!!!

    Thank you to everyone who made this possible - My dad(Larry), sister(Lynn), niece(Stacey), nephew(John), brother-in-law (Kevin), Mom (Anne), Brother (Larry), BIG thanks to Ellen and Kelly! BIGGER thanks to our volunteers Lynnette and Micheal!!!

    To all our sponsors, golfers, members, doctors....THANK YOU ALL!

    We look forward to next years Lori Anne Flanigan Memorial Golf Outing and hope to see you there!

    Sincerely,
    A very tired...Lisa

    Wow!! What a great success.

    And what a lot of work your whole family must have put into it. What a way to honor the memory of Lori. I'm so pleased that so much money was raised to help continue your good work.

        A big thank you to the HCMA members who helped make the day a success by participating in the golf outing, sponsoring holes, and/or providing prize donations. To our two members from Mickey land, those Disney Tickets were a hot item.

        During the dinner Lisa shared a story with the golfers about a family who turned to the HCMA a couple years ago to find help for their young son. They were directed to an HCM expert who determined the son to be a high risk candidate and implanted a defib. The boy has been doing fine for two years and then a couple weeks ago he had an episode which triggered his defib. The defib saved his life. His family most likely never would have never known about the need for a defib without the involvement of the HCMA. The majority of the golfers participate because they know its a good cause and a fun day. However, they don't really understand what HCM is or what the HCMA is really about. But, I think many of them really started to understand how important their support is to the HCMA when they heard that story. I think a few more wallets were opened to buy more raffle tickets after that story. The golfers, sponsors, and prize donors all are owed a great big thank you from all of the members of the HCMA and participants of this message board. On next year's golf outing brochure it would be great to include a few quotes from the members as to what the HCMA means to them and what the Golf Outing means to them.

        It was a great day for all. Keep in mind it rained on Saturday, Sunday, again on Tuesday and again Today. But Monday was sunny and perfect. Lori must have been watching over us!!!! The course was a little soggy. But everyone still had a great time.
