GREENVILLE, NC- Spring is just around the corner and what comes to mind? Grabbing your clubs, heading to the course, and supporting a great cause. Riley’s Army is happy to announce our biggest spring fundraising event- The 5TH Annual Teed Off at Cancer Golf Tournament & Dinner.
The Teed off at Cancer Charity Golf Tournament was started in 2012. It is presented by Delcor, Inc, a local family owned Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing Company. The Delcor family has been supporting the Greenville/ Pitt County area and the pirate nation for over 40 years. 100% of the funds raised from this charitable event is given to Riley’s Army… Delcor’s charity of choice.
The 5th Annual Teed off at Cancer Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday May 12th 2016 at the Greenville Country Club with a 8:00am flight and a 1:00 pm flight. Find yourself three other friends to golf with and then register your team at www.teedoffatcancer.com.
We will kick off the event with a dinner and some entertainment the night before. The Teed off at Cancer Dinner will be an evening complete with dinner, guest speaker Coach Jeff Connors, ECU‘s Strength and Conditioning Coach, music by Mark and Kelly from Jupiter Jones, raffle drawing, and silent auction. We are expecting an evening of fun, entertainment, and socializing with over 140-150 golfers, their spouses, and community members at the Greenville Country Clubhouse on Wednesday May 11th 2016 at 5:30pm. Tickets for the dinner if you are not golfing will be available starting March 23rd and are only $25 each and can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com, at 692 Olive in Arlington Village, or at the Delcor Showroom off Charles Blvd.
Riley’s Army supports children with cancer and their families in Eastern NC. We offer support in the hospital, by providing meals for the children and their families and having volunteers sit with the children for respite care, offering comfort and support. We also find that the children and their families’ needs change as they continue to fight their battle with cancer. Providing immediate family support for financial burdens and essential needs is important to us. Being a volunteer-based organization, we rely heavily on our volunteers and the community to provide for these children’s needs. We currently serve over 182 children and their families. Riley dreamed that there would come a day where no child would have to be alone in the hospital, and thanks to our growing hospital volunteer program, her dream will come true. In 2015, our volunteers provided over 1550 hours of volunteer service at the local children’s hospital. The needs of our families continue to grow and we are pushing forward with plans to expand, allowing us to help even more children & their families.
We are in need of donations for our silent auction portion of the evening. We will accept any donation- gift certificate, item from your business, or a basket of items as a silent auction item. All donors will receive a ticket to the dinner event and will be listed on our website, mentioned on our face book and twitter pages. Teed Off at Cancer is an approved 501(c)3 charity and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
