Dear PGA Ontario Members,
 
Thank you to all that have signed up to participate in the 4th Annual Golf to Conquer Cancer event being held at Coppinwood and Granite Golf Clubs. We are half way to reaching our goal of participants. Please contact us if you would like to participate in some capacity.
 
The 4th Annual Golf to Conquer Cancer Tournament - presented by Harry Rosen Inc., and benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre will be held on Monday 12th June 2017. We are proud to continue our partnership with PGA of Ontario for our 4th annual tournament held at both Coppinwood and Granite Golf Clubs.
 
Cancer remains a cause that touches us all. 40% of Canadians are expected to develop cancer in their lifetime. In fact, every eight minutes a Canadian will hear the words "you have cancer".
 
With your help, the 3rd annual event raised over $1.2 million bringing our total funds raised over the past two years to $3.4 million in support of Personalized Cancer Medicine at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre! Golf to Conquer Cancer is the most successful single day golf fundraiser supporting cancer research and care across the entire country. Our goal for 2017 is to generate in excess of $1.5 Million for Personalized Cancer Medicine at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, bringing the 4 year total to almost $5 million.
 
We are writing to you, as a PGA Ontario member, to ask you to help in a few different ways:
Participate in the tournament by golfing in a foursome. We hope that our guests will learn from you and enjoy your company, and that you may, perhaps create a relationship that could be beneficial to you or your home course in terms of future instruction or other opportunities. Please accept with our thanks for your contribution, an honorarium in the amount of $300 that will be paid to you by cheque - received on event day.
Donate a foursome or a package as you see fit to our online auction from your home course. Our online auction will be accessible to many different people and will give your club great exposure.
Refer a foursome to the tournament. Perhaps you could coordinate a team from your club to play, with you as their "pro". For each confirmed foursome you refer, you will receive a $1,000.00 cheque as a referral fee.
NOTE: Any participating professional that might choose to donate back some, or all of the participation honorarium OR the foursome referral fee can do so knowing that 50% of your donation will be provided to PGA of Ontario in support of The Hulbert Fund and in honor of Craig Marseilles who lost his battle with cancer last year.

Sincerely,
