Rally for a Cure

Every year, our Women’s Club holds a Rally for the Cure.  This is a Two Gal Best Shot tournament that raises money for breast cancer.  We work with the Komen Foundation here in Des Moines.  The proceeds to this event go to helping to pay for breast cancer screenings.  It’s a great opportunity to honor those members of our Women’s Club who are survivors as well as those who are no longer with us.  It is truly amazing how breast cancer affects so many people.

IMG_7185Every year, Komen provides us with a Rally hole.  This is on number nine.  The ladies make a donation which gives them a magazine, sleeve of balls, and an opportunity to win a driver.

All of the ladies come dressed in pink and ready to have a great day on the golf course.  We were really fortunate to have an absolutely beautiful day this year.

It’s fun to see the crowd.  Many are cancer survivors as well as mother/daughter teams.  Most of them are simply friends who enjoy spending time together and playing a little golf while they are at it.IMG_7175Our friend, Trisha Trixie, made an appearance for the day.  She was selling adorable earrings that were pink golf tees.

The ladies enjoy donuts and coffee in the morning.IMG_7192The room is set up with linens donated by Ameripride, plus there are enough prizes that every single golfer walks away with a nice prize!  We are very blessed to have such an amazing group of ladies who make up our board for our Women’s club as well as a great community who helps to support this event.

IMG_7201If you’d like to participate next year, simply sign up to be a part of our Birthday Club and you’ll get our emails with all the information about what is going on at the golf course!  This is a great event for a wonderful cause and is held every year on the third Thursday in June.  Our Women’s Club president this year is a breast cancer survivor!  Go Jean!

I have an amazing husband. Three entertaining children and I work for my family's business. What's that mean? It means I work too much and do the jobs no one else wants to do. The benefit is that I got to make up my title. The Wizard of Fun. It's one of the advantages of working at the family's business. You get to make up titles. I decided I need to share all my adventures and misadventures with the world. At the very least, my mom. She'll read just about anything.
