All Rallied Up

Posted by admin on December 1, 2011 at 3:09 AM

COMANCHE TRACE GOLFERS HOSTED A RALLY FOR THE CURE GOLF SCRAMBLE AND SILENT AUCTION ON OCTOBER 6. RALLY FOR THE CURE IS A PROGRAM THAT WORKS TO SPREAD AWARENESS ABOUT BREAST CANCER AND BREAST HEALTH, IN SUPPORT OF SUSAN G. COMEN FOR THE CURE THROUGH VOLUNTEER ORGANIZED GOLF, TENNIS, AND SOCIAL EVENTS.

In April, the Lady 9ers games committee suggested this idea. Within three days, the LGA and MGA were on board and joined the 9ers to plan the event. The committee members were Judy Coombs, Lisa Self, Lynne Schuneman, Maria Swann, Terri Weatherly, Jennifer Phelps, Cindy Gosmano, Trish Butler, and Len Scott.

The day’s activities included a golf scramble, luncheon, and silent auction. Golf prizes were awarded for 1st through 5th place. Winners of a closest to the pin challenge won a gift certificate to a local restaurant. Winners of the putting contest received raffl e tickets for a chance to win the grand prizes of a lady’s golf bag and a man’s travel golf bag. All participants received a goody bag with breast health information and other Rally items. The silent auction, open to all residents carried donations by Comanche Trace members, staff, and local businesses.

“Our success can be attributed to a super committee of dedicated individuals. In addition, the enthusiasm and support of Trevor Hyde, Sherri Jones, Tony Johnson, Colin MacKay and their staff contributed to our success” stated Judy Coombs,Chairperson. “We also thank the residents and businesses who donated 34 Hole sponsorships.”

The mission of Rally for The Cure is to empower people to join the fi ght against breast cancer by providing a platform for them to educate their family, friends, and community on the importance of early detection. Comanche Trace golfers are proud of their first Rally for The Cure Event. Because so many of our residents played in the tournament, came to the luncheon, bid on auction items, and bought Rally flags, we were able to donate over $10,500 to Susan G. Koman for The Cure for breast cancer research. This is quite an accomplishment for the first event.
