  • What Have You Done to Support the HCMA Today?

    Ever think about what it takes to keep an organization like the HCMA running? Things like this message board, staffing an office, providing telephone consulations/assistance, and educating the medical community, all cost money. The minimal annual membership fee does not go very far to cover these expenses.

    The HCMA relies 100% on donations/fund raising to keep running.

    The annual golf outing is one major source of income to help with the expenses relating to keeping the organization running. In order for the golf outing to be a financial sucess, we need the support of ALL our members and message board participants.

    ANY help you can give will be greatly appreciated. Prize donations, sponsorships, golfers, volunteer on the day of the golf outing.

    The golf outing is being held on June 7th. Please help us by providing whatever level of support you can.

    Lynn, I don't remember the cost of the ad I sponsored last year, but please do the same thing for me this year, let me know and I'll send a check, just PM me with the details. Last year, I honored one of our early researchers and pioneers in the study and treatment of HCM. Dr. Henry McIntosh is such a remarkable person. He has accomplished so much in his lifetime and is the best at story-telling. Just ask Lisa. We have had the good fortune of meeting and visiting with him on numerous occaisions, always a treat.

      Hello Lynn,
      Could you send me some information about the cost of the ads in your golf outing program? It would be great to add the support of the Anthony Bates Foundation to your event. I am sure we can come up with some prizes, too. I will probably have to bring them with me to the annual meeting if they are large (gift baskets), otherwise I can send them through the mail in the next few weeks (gift certificates, checks, money orders).

      We all have benefited from the support of the HCMA. I hope that each one of the people that reads and posts on a regular basis finds a way to contribute. We could always send some cash...and the contribution will be tallied with all the donations made.

      Our support to this cause brings help to many people seen and unseen. Have a great day!
      Best Regards,
      Sharon Bates
