Our 9th annual charity golf tournament was held on Monday, October 29, 2012 with all proceeds benefiting Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. This was the first year we held the tournament at the exclusive Del Mar Country Club and it was our most successful tournament to date. The 108 golfers were treated to a fun filled day of food and beverages on the course as well as activities on the holes such as complimentary massages and prize opportunities. Dinner and awards followed with Hank Bauer as our Master of Ceremonies who also performed our live auction and raffle giveaways. Fresh Start’s CEO Shari Brasher introduced a very special guest speaker, Beloved Jefeti, who became a Fresh Start patient in 2010 and has since received over $100,000 in donated medical care from Fresh Start’s organization. Fresh Start Surgical Gifts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit who provide reconstructive plastic surgery and related services to children and young adults with physical deformities. All services are provided free of cost to these families. Our event raised over $85,000 for Fresh Start which will help future patients like Beloved get the medical care they need. Please join us for our 10th annual tournament in 2013 (TBD) that will surely be an anniversary event to remember! Thank you again to all of our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, and vendors who made this year’s event such a huge success!
