Take a Swing at Cancer! (SFY Event a Success!)

Thank you to all the players, guests, sponsors, vendors and volunteers that made our 1st Annual Swing Fore! Yellow Golf Charity Classic a great event! A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll add just a few comments to go with some pictures from our event. (If you'd like to see more, see the links at the bottom.)

The day started off crisp and cool as the players began registering for their tournament. The Helicopter ball drop game was the highlight of the morning. As the day carried on, the temperatures started to climb along with the energy and high spirits.

There was no lack for laughing and competitiveness out there on the course (all in the name of charity, of course!). The vendors and sponsors had some great distractions for the players which were a lot of fun out there.

Meanwhile, "back at the ranch" (a.k.a. Country Club), the volunteers were busy getting ready for the evening's dinner and live auction, driving the course to check-in with the players and sponsors and overall having a great time. I was personally very touched by Geoff, a local cancer survivor and awesome cyclist who just had surgery a few weeks ago and still came out to volunteer and help us. Truly that's the LIVESTRONG spirit!
Everybody was generous in spirit (and their wallets) at the dinner and live/silent auctions that evening. The highlighted game to end the day was Ferrari's "Hole in One" game (yes, the prize was a $250,000 gift certificate at Ferrari of San Diego). So fun!

At the end of the day, I was touched and amazed to hear everyone's connection to the Cause and thought the evening event was the perfect touch to an amazing day.

Lance Armstrong's "Tour de France" Dedication to Julie

A great reminder that I had armies of support beside me in my fight. (Thanks, Lance!) Even with the recent media, this video isn't about the bike...but the fight against cancer. LIVESTRONG!
