Teeing it Up - Part 1
Posted by Paul on 6/4/2013 1:20:00 PM
This will be one of those weeks where I relish my role because it starts and ends with golf! Yesterday I had the privilege of representing the MDA Foundation at the annual Give Kids A Smile golf tournament at Bogey Hills inSt Louis. The Foundation is glad to support the fine work that GKAS does and this event is one of their major fundraisers for the year. I heard Joan Allen, executive director, delighting in her choice of weather. It was sunny and warm without being humid and there were no rain delays! Everyone (70+ golfers and a great turnout from supportive vendors) really enjoyed a wonderful day outside.
I was placed on a team with long time GKAS sponsors, JL Moisan Construction, represented by Jeff Moisan and Bob Seals (that's them doling out prizes above). Rounding out our foursome was Dr Bob Strathman, a periodontist and a very solid golfer. I enjoyed getting to know about dental office construction and Dr Strathman and I covered a lot of ground concerning MDA efforts. As a team we were -3 which would have won the B flight by a stroke but alas it left us at the bottom of the A flight. No worries, we were still allowed to enjoy the well attended dinner and auction which capped off a great day for GKAS. Plus I had a chance to return the NOMAD they so generously loaned us for MOMOM.
Kudos and all the best to Joan and the GKAS Board as they build on their current success.
