I'm sure you've heard of a marathon. You may have heard of a phone-a-thon. But, have you heard of a golf-a-thon?
There's a charity event down in North Carolina at the TPC Wakefield Plantation course on October 12 to benefit the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. The concept is simple. Thirty-six player register to play as much golf as they can on a single day. Beforehand, they ask for pledges from folks who will support them with a donation of so many dollars per hole. The event's goal is $2500 per person, or about $2 per hole from 18 people for 36 holes.
Well, if you live in the Raleigh area or are interested in playing in the event, check out the registration website. I thought this was a great idea and should do a lot of good for the Jack & Jill Foundation.
