H2 Golf Tournament

Imagine finding out your child has cancer. Now imagine finding out your child has a worse prognosis than originally thought and will undergo a year’s worth of treatment. We often rally behind big causes with huge charities and these are all great but what if we rallied around one of our own? A family in our community in the fight for their daughter’s life. If you would like to enter a team, sponsor hole, or be a larger “headline” sponsor please reach out to myself or Jacob. All of the proceeds will go to the cause of getting Hailey Holder Allen well. 

Let’s help support this precious angel and her family! Even if you don’t necessarily care about the golf tournament, any and all donations for this cause would be greatly appreciated. Devon Joiner (DJoiner@alfains.com) and Jacob Howard Gore (JGore@alfains.com) are the points of contacts for this event. We are nearing our 60 team capacity and are looking for door prizes or additional sponsors to help raise money for Hailey Holder Allen. We are also looking for a food sponsor, who would potentially donate food, or give us a really good deal. Also you can include that we will have over 240 people on the course that day. Learn more about her story at H2Strong.org.
