2nd Annual Olivia’s Open!

It’s Official…the 2nd annual Olivia’s Open is in 2 months!!

Can you believe it?

Last year was the innaugural Olivia’s Open golf outing. We raised over $6000 for the 5p- Society of the US. (Olivia has Cri du Chat or 5p- Syndrome.) This year my goal is $10,000.

Will you help me?

I’m looking for…

**golfers — my goal is to have 100 golfers this year. The outing takes place at Bedford Hills Golf Course in Temperance, MI. Are you close? If you don’t golf, do you know someone who does? It’s a bargain outing at the price of $60 per golfer or $220 per foursome. There’s also mini-golf the day of the event for $5 per person…perfect for family members who want to participate but don’t golf.

**hole sponsors — my goal is to have all 18 holes sponsored this year. It’s $250 per hole. You get your information/ad on my website, on the flyers, in the program the day of the event and a large sign at the hole. It goes to a good cause!!

**silent auction items — do you make something or sell something really cool that people would want to bid on? Send it my way!

**donations — if none of these other options trips your trigger, you can always send a donation our way. I’ve set up a chip-in page where you can easily donate.

**blog auction — coming in the next few weeks I will be auctioning off several awesome items including some beautiful Stella & Dot jewelry!! Stay tuned.

I would appreciate any help anyone can offer. We are such a small group of families in the 5p- Society because the sydrome is so rare; that makes it even more difficult to raise money for the society. Donations are used for national conferences where we gather and learn how to best provide for our children; for research; for materials to send to families, especially those who are new to the society. Olivia’s Open will also be making a donation of a trike to Ambucs this year; this is the company that donated Olivia’s awesome trike!
I appreciate you taking the time to consider donating. For more information, you can visit Olivia’s Open page here. Thank you!!
