Few things are as devastating as the loss of a child, and we have chosen to use our sorrow to drive proactive prevention efforts. We would like to thank the sponsors of the “Birdie” Invitational for making the 2010 Golf Tournament such a success, thereby allowing the Foundation to continue it’s efforts with water safety in our community.
The 2010 Golf Tournament
On September 17th, 2010, The Birdie foundation welcomed golfers to The Reston National Golf & Country Club in Reston, Virginia for the 4th annual “Birdie” Invitational. With a shotgun start, the sold out field of 144 participants enjoyed a beautiful fall afternoon of golf, followed by a buffet dinner at the club. The evening ended with a raffle, as well as prizes for the longest drive and overall winners.
As our major fund-raising effort of the year, The Birdie Foundation was thrilled with the success of this year’s tournament, the proceeds of which will be allocated to sponsoring the training of ISR Instructor Candidate, Martha Ankeney, and sponsoring lessons for students through the ISR Community of Caring, among other efforts.
