MGG Swings for Shannon raises $14,000!
MGG Swings for Shannon was a great success. We had beautiful weather and great support for out event. 140 golfers this year helped us raise almost $14,000.
I enjoy going around the course and seeing each group. Almost everyone has a connection to me or Dan or Mayo Girls Golf. Some of these people knew Shannon. Many of these people were a part of Shannon's journey. Seeing Shannon's 7th and 8th grade teachers playing golf in the Shannon shirts is pretty special. They have been changed by their experience with that girl...
While the event is a lot of work, we don't do it alone. So, thank you to all the volunteers - friends who continue to support us and help us with organizing our events.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored a tee sign or donated a raffle prize.
Thank you to Coach Steve Myhro, Coach Cathy Ruedinger and the Mayo Girls Golf team. Your manpower makes things run smoothly.
And finally, thank you to each and every one of you who played in the event. Hopefully 5 hours on a golf course in the sun made you feel good. Hopefully you felt Shannon shining down on you.
We will do it all again next year, so mark your calendars for July 18, 2016!
