All The entire Goldman Family and Alec would like to thank everyone who participated in this years 2nd Annual GoldmanStrong Golf Tournament last Monday on May 4, 2015 for the support of Alec in his recovery from his spinal cord injury. The day was filled with a great day of weather, friends and golf. We understand the personal sacrifice and appreciate each and everyone of you who took the time off from work and family to attend this years event to help support Alec.
With all of your support from the Individual Golf, Premium Golf Sponsor Packages, Players Packages, Raffles and Silent Auction we were able to raise just over $46,000 for Alec and his Special Needs Trust from this days event. The money we raised, thanks to all of you will now be used to send Alec over to Switzerland in the coming months for his first Stem Cell Treatment. The hope is for Alec to be able to regain some movement below his level of injury. This is still considered an experimental procedure that has had great success in other individuals who have gone through the procedure. There are no promises, we can only hope and pray that Alec has some level of success from it.
We were blessed this year to have the participation and sponsorship from Islands Restaurant Anaheim Hills & Brea, Yorba Cantina in Yorba Linda, Ballast Point Brewery and Meloza Tequila to provide their services for breakfast, lunch and beverages on the course during the day. Yorba Cantina got us off to a great start with the Breakfast Burritos and the Meloza Bloody Mary bar was a huge hit. Islands Restaurant kept it going for lunch with the Chicken Wraps and Hot wings and Ballast Point served their Craft Beers along with Meloza Margarita Bar. Thank you each so much for everything you provided to make the day enjoyable for each and everyone of the golfers. We ask everyone of you to please continue to support Islands Anaheim Hills, Islands Brea, Yorba Cantina, Meloza and Ballast Point at their establishments or buying their products as they have given so much back to us.
A special thanks to Barb & Warren Keith with Farmers Insurance for supplying the GoldmanStrong Cooler Bags and bottle openers for all of us to carry our beers in and keep them cold during the round. We were then blessed to have the bags filled with lots of great gifts for each golfer from D Burke Mechanical, Paul & Teri Nunnari, The Haygoods, Islands Restaurant, Golfsmith and Accurate Concrete Sawing. Thanks also to all the volunteers and folks who put in countless hours to make this day a success from start to finish from the months of planning, talking to local business for support, gift cards and silent auction items and each of you who took a day off work to help run this event. We could not have done it without you all.
Everyone can continue to follow Alec's progress on his Website GOLDMANSTRONG.ORG or on Face Book @ GOLDMANSTRONG
Please pass this email on to the others in your family, business and fellow golfers who also participated and we do not have their email on file.
Thank you All again and God Bless each and everyone of you.
