Re: 2008 Chrissy Predham Memorial Golf Tournament
I am writing to say thank you once again for your sponsorship of the 2007 Chrissy Predham Memorial Golf Tournament and to ask that you consider a similar involvement in 2008. I, and the tournament organizing committee, have decided to hold this even one last time to raise additional funds for my granddaughter Ireland’s Trust Fund. With the generous support of sponsors, last year’s tournament was a tremendous success attracting 225+ participants and raising $42,000.
The Chrissy Predham Memorial Golf Tournament has been organized in memory of a wonderful and devoted young woman, who was brutally murdered in St. John’s, Newfoundland, on January 21, 2007. Chrissy grew up in Ottawa, and attended St. Matthew’s High School. Chrissy left behind her darling daughter, Ireland Predham Newman. The proceeds raised last year and from this final tournament will be used as an endowment for a trust fund, which will provide for Ireland’s post-secondary education. This year’s tournament will not only honour the memory of Chrissy, but will provide an opportunity to raise awareness of the increasing violence against women in our community and our country.
This year’s tournament will be held at Manderley-On-The-Green Gold Club – Sunday, August 17, 2008.
“IT TAKES A WHOLE VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD”. You are invited to be a part of that village by being a tournament sponsor.
Thank you for your consideration. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
Chair, Organizing Committee
Hi Joan, July 4, 2008
Wonderful to have your support once again this year. Thank you very much on behalf of myself and all the committee members, who are working hard again this year to reach our goal in establishing a healthy post-secondary trust fund for Chrissy’s baby, Ireland.
Kindest personal regards,
