Hands of Hope USA
1st Annual Golf Marathon
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
The Hands of Hope USA Board Members are thrilled to have you play in our 1st Annual Hands of Hope USA Golf Marathon on October 28, 2019! We thought a brief update was in order to help you along in your preparation for the Marathon. Once again, we want to thank you for your commitment to this great event.
It is critical that you bring your Golf Marathon Event Guide with completed sponsorship information to the Marathon. (Our goal is $2,500 per golfer.) Also, bring any pledges you may have already received to the Marathon. Please do not forget these items.
Following the Marathon, we will send your sponsors a letter including your total holes played and their actual pledge amount. It is very crucial for every name, address, and phone number to be complete. Please go over your book the night before and check each pledge information. WRITE CLEARLY. Once payment is received a “Thank You Letter” will be sent to each donor as well as information for their tax-deductible donation.
Please find someone who can caddy for you if you like (spouse, friend, etc.) This person will drive your cart, help you play faster, encourage you, explain how wonderful you are, pick up thrown clubs, etc.

Hoping all your putts stay on the green.
