Wow....What a Day!

Thanks to the 288 golfers and over 100 other people who came out to the  fundraising event for Jim Thompson at the U of I Golf Course.  What a Day!  I was blessed to be asked to work the Raffle and 50/50 ticket sales.  What an experience, a six hour high!  People were handing me money non-stop, many of them not event wanting their tickets.

I Need Your Help This Sunday

Many of you know Jim Thompson, the assistant Pro at the U of I Golf Course for the past ten years.  He is in the midst of a BIG battle with cancer. 

This Sunday the 28th the U of I Golf Course will host an 8 inch BIG Cup Scramble.  It's a 10:30 shotgun start.  $40 per player for golf, cart and lunch.
