Birdies For Charity

February 1st thru 4th
I need your help.
I am raising funds for my Special Olympics East Valley Golf program. We have 28 Special Olympics golfers that have a passion for playing golf. Each athlete plays on a team, typically with a parent or good friend, year round at many challenging courses in Arizona. This year we will be playing at Sun City CC, Omni National in Tucson, Antelope Hills in Prescott, Longbow in Mesa, Oak Creek CC in Sedona, Augusta Ranch in Mesa, and Whirlwind in Chandler. All of the funds raised will go to support this special year round golf program. These funds also enable us to participate in the Special Olympics National Invitational Golf Tournament if we are lucky enough to be selected. The National Tournament is 3 days and, like the PGA, we cannot use golf carts. So it can be very challenging.
I have been very active in the City of Mesa and State of Arizona activities for Special Olympics since I was a little girl. Since all of my family participates and competes in golf, I am very happy that I can have the chance to play golf also. Golf has been a wonderful outlet for me and I ty to compete strongly. I take great pride in the medals I get; especially the gold medals that I have received in Special Olympics Golf Events. One of the highlights of my Special Olympics Golf Competition was attending and participating in the 2013 Special Olympics National Invitational Golf Tournament in New Jersey where I won a silver medal. At this event I thoroughly enjoyed making many new friends.
I am strongly supported by my family who cheer greatly for me. My mother and I are devoted to Special Olympics Arizona and have been very active in raising funds for the Special Olympics Golf program over the past few years.
How can you help?
The Thunderbirds have given us a great opportunity to raise funds by matching all donations by an additional 10%. One hundred percent of the funds stay in our Special Olympics golf program and enable us to continue to play golf and improve our game. Your help comes from sponsoring me for $.01, $.02, $.03 or more per birdie. If you would like to write a check, please make payable to Thunderbird Charities and mail it to Special Olympics Arizona 2100 S 75th Ave Phoenix AZ 85043 attention Mary.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
