Final call for Pink Ball plus a Wine Request

The last day to sign up for golf and lunch is quickly approaching–September 6th.  Find the sign-up book in the Pro Shop Club Room.

We have an opportunity to play a major part in helping to raise funds for the Knight Cancer Institute at OHSU.  Last year the “Charbonneau Pink Ball” raised over $47,000 to help fund their research for new cures for cancer.  Besides individual contributions, and Tee Box “memory signs”, Corporate Sponsorship and other fundraising efforts, the generosity of Charbonneau residents with wine and beer donations contributed in raising over $3100 towards the final tally.  We hope to increase that figure again this year.

Once again, we are providing donated wine and beer for this year’s tournament.  Wine is sold by the glass at the tournament, and leftover wine is auctioned off.  The more wine and beer that is donated, the greater will be the funds that we can raise–and we need your help.

We are asking everyone who receives this e-mail to donate 2 bottles of wine (the type you would drink), or more–or whatever you can donate.  Please bring the wine to Bob & Elaine Junta’s at 32675 SW Lake Point Court.  If they are not home, you can leave it in their courtyard with your name.  If you would like to make other arrangements, please call them at 503/694-2888.  If you have any questions, please call Dana Richmond at 503/694-6983.

We are asking a lot, but Cancer has affected EVERYONE at Charbonneau in so many ways.  This is the biggest cancer fundraiser that we have at Charbonneau and a huge opportunity for us to help with local cancer research.  Whatever you can do, any and all donations that you make will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for all your consideration and generous donations.
