Dear Colleagues and Friends:
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the 8th annual Fore the Kids: Saving Lives golf tournament at the prestigious Ft. Lauderdale Country Club Friday May 4, 2012. We have an amazing day on order and a full course is expected. Our participants will receive a well stocked premium gift bag, enjoy high-end entertainment, foursome photograph, lunch, an awards reception at the 19th hole with special guests and a long stem rose for that someone special. There are celebrity golfers joining some foursomes as well!
The focus of this year's funds will go to Nova Southeastern University "Media Research using Entertainment in Health Education promoting Breast Cancer Awareness with women of color." Eighty-eight percent of people in America learn about health issues from screen time (Television and Internet). Television programs, movies, talk shows, and more are great outlets for health messages. The purpose of this is to help reach women of color in many populations and help self educate them about the dangers, risks, and preventative measures of breast cancer. Story telling is a powerful tool for promoting health awareness and can be the first, critical step in changing behavior.
We have invited LPGA Champion Cristie Kerr and her Mother Linda Kerr to receive the 2012 Kate Platt Child Advocate of the Year Award. Cristie grew up in Miami and continues to call it "home home." Cristie's Mom and Godmother were both diagnosed with breast cancer. Please visit her website to learn more about Birdies for Breast Cancer and the Liberty Health System Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center.
All proceeds go to our cause and help save the lives of tomorrow. We greatly appreciate any contribution. Golfer/Sponsor Registration: Click here to get involved.
