UPDATED MESSAGE FROM THE CO-CHAIRS:
Happy June! We hope this note finds you safe and staying healthy. Over the last months we have all learned about social distancing and staying healthy during the COVID19 crisis that has surrounded us. While our decision to postpone our CMN Friendship Invitational event came at a time of universal uncertainty, we took the responsibility for the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urged everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by their local public health officials.
We are very excited to announce that we are now scheduled for Monday, September 21st at the fabulous El Macero Country Club. We look forward to the fellowship and celebrating with our partners, patients and families. We know kids can’t wait. They need our help. You are change makers that will change the world for our kids!
We are working diligently with our officials and golf course to provide the safest environment from the time you check in to our end of the celebration. Please keep in mind that we may have changes in accordance to the latest protocols. Expect more information on logistics; we promise to keep you up to date on the latest details!
Also, look for messages about a virtual 19th hole “happy hour” where we can connect prior to the event! We are so grateful for your continued support!
Hello and welcome back!
None of us expects disease or illness to impact our children, but in a split second a child’s life can change. Did you know the largest Children’s Hospital is located right here in Sacramento and that UC Davis is the only Level One Trauma center in the region? We invite you to come out and support the kids as you share a great day of golf and fellowship with us on Monday, September 21, 2020 at the beautiful El Macero County Club in Davis.
This year we join CMN Hospitals nationally with #PlayYellow, an initiative started by Barbara and Jack Nicklaus, to help raise awareness for children's health! How can you help? Come out to play wearing your favorite yellow attire or even better - #PlayYellow gear. Special prizes await for those that participate!
We promise you a day full of #PlayYellow fun and are sure it will provide a meaningful experience! Your day includes a networking breakfast, on course lunch and exciting prize holes, as well as a reception and dinner and an AMAZING Auction to round out your day! Competition will be fierce for the Credit Union for Kids and NY Life Cups!
We are offering the same great value as last year - only $295 per individual player and of course, there are great sponsorship opportunities available!
Let's "TEE IT UP" for the kids with a day of golf and join the Nicklaus family in supporting #PlayYellow to take a swing at cancer or heart disease. Join us as we drive for success to make advances in research to assure the future health of our families and communities.
Please join us along with other community members who are passionate about saving kids lives, that believe in miracles and in good health for all children.
