Gentle request

As a lot of you know, I'm the president of the board of directors for the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens, which is a coalition of area congregations that assist homeless families in need. Our annual golf tournament is scheduled for Monday, September 29, 2008 at Athens Country Club. I sent the following email out regarding the event to my personal contacts, and I wanted to put it up here as well. If you're interested, send me an email ...

Apologies for a mass email, but the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens is hosting its annual golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 29, 2008 at Athens Country Club. This year, I’m serving as the president of the board of directors, and this is our primary fundraiser for the year. It brings in approximately 20 to 25 percent of our annual budget, so it’s vital for our success.

The cost to play is $125 per golfer or $500 per team, and it covers green fees, cart fees, a boxed lunch and a gift bag. Prizes are awarded for long drive, closest-to-the-pin and low gross and low net team scores.

If you’re not familiar with our organization, IHN of Athens is a coalition of more than 15 area congregations that provides shelter and support to homeless families in need and helps put them back on the pathway to sustainable independence. We don’t attempt to reinvent the wheel as we work to connect our families with agencies and services in the community and give them the support they need.

It’s a great event with great fellowship at a great golf course. Please consider participating in the event by signing up or letting us know you’d like to play. ... Also, help us spread the word by circulating this email with your friends and colleagues who might be interested.

The deadline to let us know you’d like to play is the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2008, and you can pay when you arrive. All we need to know is if you want to play, who your possible team members are and your handicaps. If you’d like to get paired with a team, just let us know that too.

Thanks again everyone.
