Good news…bad news for the Foundation Golf Tournament
By Patti Cullen, CAE | May 28, 2020 | All members
First, the bad news…after much discussion and soul-searching, we have made the decision that we will not be holding the Care Providers of Minnesota Foundation Golf Tournament on July 27, 2020, as originally planned. In spite of how much we all want to do this, and how much we believe in the mission of this fundraising event, the timing is just not good. With our COVID-19 surge expected at the end of July, the timing is awful for a large group of LTC professionals to be out playing when we know the COVID-19 outbreaks (and deaths) in our communities will be continuing.
Now the good news…we do still want to support the Foundation and its mission of providing scholarships for our LTC heroes. Look for an upcoming communication on “Pretend you are Golfing” information—giving past golfers and sponsors the opportunity to pay for golfing/hole sponsors as you otherwise would have….and on the day the tournament was supposed to happen, we will send out a THANK YOU blast email recognizing all of our “virtual” golfers and sponsors who have donated. We look forward to seeing you all more excited to golf and support us in 2021!
