CanCare 24th Annual Golf Tournament and Banquet. Monday, October 3, 2016
Houston, TX …
On behalf of CanCare and the people we serve, we wish to express our sincerest gratitude to you for your part in making CanCare’s 24th Annual Golf Classic such a great success! With your help, this year’s event raised over $610,000 in support of CanCare’s mission to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families.
Sunday evening was full of exciting highlights! We had a couple of people take home new puppies, we were able to honor Nancy and Tommy Tucker, hear a compelling volunteer story from Larry Latimer, and welcome Cristina Vetrano as she embarks on her journey as CanCare’s new President and CEO. We hope you made some unforgettable memories.
An event of this magnitude is only made possible by the commitment of many dedicated individuals like you. We are grateful for the leadership of the Golf Chairs, Trey and Jeannie Able, and Golf Committee Members, and the philanthropy of our supporters, the devotion of our many volunteers, and for the blessing of everyone’s thoughtful support of CanCare.
Thanks to you, CanCare is able to broaden its presence in the cancer community, offering hope and support to those battling cancer.
Thank you for your generosity. We look forward to your involvement in 2017!
