We still have some holes to sponsor. Maybe some people would be willing to chip in at work and sponsor a hole. The hole is $250.00 and you get whatever you want written on the flag at your hole or your work logo. I know some people will be going to the breakfast so stop by Wildcat after the event.

Yes. All the money raised will be given to Dr. Aisen for the research for CP. If you send me your address we will send you a receipt from the foundation. All the money given to the tournament is tax deductible.

We are trying to get a Texans Talk hole sponsored at Gary's golf tournament. So far we have

GlassHalfFull $25
SheTexan $25
Silver Oak $25
Diapher $25

Edit: Given what Gary said below, send your money directly to Gary's foundation thru paypal. If you do not like or cannot use paypal for whatever reason, contact me thru pm and I will get the money from you and to him.

Gary, if someone wants to pay thru your paypal site instead of mailing me a check, can they designate it towards the TexansTalk hole?

gary
08-16-2008, 01:33 PM
We are trying to raise the money as soon as possible to make the hole flags. Go to my website to go to paypal. Make the donation and I will receive your name. You do not have to specify the hole. PM me your actual name and then I know it goes for the hole. As soon as we have the money I will start the flag. I want to thank eveyone helping out and Dr. Aisen will be receiving all the money. You all are really great friends and I am very excited about this. :fans:

That was an awesome event! Next year we will sponsor another hole, but I'll also be playing! Heck, I know I can at least beat Joe... Thanks for putting that together and allowing us to participate in it. It was our honor to help contribute... A big thanks to everyone that contributed.

Thank you to everyone. We had such a great time today. Eric Winston came out and we went around the golf course. He will play next year because I gave him the date. I appreciate everyone so much for making this so successful. Wildcat said we better come back next year. My mom is going to talk golf lessons at the request of Andy after she swung for him. Thank you all so much for the hole sponsors, the donations and coming out to play and enjoy a great lunch from Bubba's Sports Bar and Grill. Get ready for the cook off.
