Fore Her, a nonprofit organization in Santa Rosa Beach, is teed up and ready to host the sixth annual Fore Her Golf Outing on September 28, 2018, at the Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club to raise money for local breast cancer patients.
“Each year this event grows and improves,” said Amy Walsh, founder of Fore Her. “Based on what we’re working on for this year, it’s an experience that’s going to top every year before it.”
Attendees can expect a silent auction, food donated by Centennial Bank, beer samples from Grayton Beer Company, a chance to win a golf cart from Dixielectricar and an opportunity to compete for 1,000 dollars in the third annual Helicopter Golf Ball Drop by Panhandle Helicopter.
“The cause supported by the Fore Her golf tournament is near and dear to our hearts,” said Wendy Morton, Director of Marketing for Sandestin Real Estate. “We are proud to be a sponsor and support this amazing organization that is such a valuable resource for those in need in our local community.”
The proceeds will benefit local individuals battling breast cancer, who are able to use the money to pay for their mortgage, car, utilities, medical expenses, and a well-deserved vacation.
“Breast cancer impacts people and their families in so many different way,” said Walsh. “We want finances to be one less thing on their plate while going through such a tough time.”
The annual golf outing started initially as a gathering of Walsh’s family to celebrate the memory of her mother and her aunt, who both lost their battles with breast cancer. But, remembering how financially taxing breast cancer was on their family, they transformed the event into a fundraiser, creating the Jeanette Hansen/Barb Schultz Golf Outing in Saginaw, Michigan.
“When I moved to the Emerald Coast, I wanted to continue this tradition but in a slightly different way,” said Walsh.
She transformed her family’s Michigan golf outing into an incredible nonprofit and used the golf outing as the main source of funds each year, growing the organization and event into what it is today.
Sponsorships for this event are still available.
