I lost a very dear friend 3 years ago named Jim McMahon. He was a golf pro and a tremendous person. Every day, he comes into my mind in some way, be it a happy memory, funny story, or the desire to call him up to chat. He can never be replaced.
In his honor, I helped start a golf outing in 2013, and this will be the 4th event. His friends and family gather at New York Country Club in Rockland County, NY where he was head pro and play a charity golf event. It has virtually sold out every year so far.
The event features breakfast, lunch, dinner, open bar, cocktail hour and full banquet dinner with prizes and free gifts. The contestants from the Ms Dominican Republic US pageant are on hand to make everyone feel welcome as well.
Each year, all the money raised goes to charity. We have given about $20,000 each year to help others and carry on Jim’s good name. I always attend and play, and it is a bargain at $200. This is tax deductable.
If you are interested in a fun filled day with me, go to eventbrite.com and search for Jim McMahon. This year, it is Monday, August 15th . Hope to see you there.
