Our beloved friend Dean Pace continues to battle the most aggressive form of brain cancer (Glioblastoma). Following his diagnosis and subsequent surgery on June 10, 2016 at NYU, the past 11 months have been an extreme challenge on many levels. Dean has courageously fought for the past year, leading Kerri to refer to him as her Superman – a well-deserved moniker. While this fight has been going on for some time, it is still the early stages of a long, difficult and necessary journey.
Dean and Kerri are blessed with an amazing support network of close friends and family. They have been overwhelmed with gratitude by the love and support they have received since Dean’s diagnosis. Last year’s Golf Outing was a tremendous success, with many of you asking when the next one will be and what you can do to help.
Golf Outting: Friday August 18th
In providing continued love, strength, prayers and support for Dean and Kerri, a second benefit has been scheduled for Friday, August 18, 2017 at Rock Hill Golf & Country Club in Manorville, NY. Similar to last year, the day will start with a buffet breakfast, followed by a round of golf (shotgun start at 8:00 am), ending with a cocktail hour and early dinner. For those that are not available to golf, we are hoping you will be able to join us for the cocktail hour and dinner. If you are able to attend either the golf outing or just the dinner, please complete and return the attached form.
We are hoping that with additional notice to plan, we will be able to exceed last year’s impressive turnout. That event was launched with a much shorter lead-time and we only had about 24 unfilled spots to golf last year. Thus, while the event is still three months away, we are encouraging people to get their registrations in early.
In addition to folks participating in the event, we are hopeful to receive monetary donations as well as auction items we can use to raise money for Dean’s care, anything you can think of that can help raise money (services, products, gift cards, weekends away, event tickets, etc.). We are immensely grateful for any support you can provide, whether you are able to attend the event or not. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call Kevin at (631) 645-0602, Seth at (720) 560-6663 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you all on August 18th!
