Important Foundation News!

Updated July 2017

2016 was another great year for the Foundation and everyone at the Foundation thanks you for your continued support. While we didn’t host a golf outing, we had another great turnout for the Long Grove Race and also received many donations throughout the year from our loyal supporters.
All that being said, we have continued to reflect and revisit our thoughts around the organization. After many emotional yet practical discussions we made the difficult decision that the Foundation as we know it must come to an end. The Foundation officers and directors are now married with young families and busy careers.

Tee It Up for a Cure
Annual "Tee It Up For A Cure" Golf Outing
After much deliberation, the decision was made that the 11th annual "Tee It Up For a Cure Golf Outing" needs to wait a year. There are a lot of exciting things going on in the lives of Foundation leadership this year with new babies and new homes that didn’t leave a lot of free time to plan a golf outing. But we still need your support to fund cancer research and the two annual Foundation scholarships and we hope you will consider a donation via donation via PayPal.

The Significance of the Bulldog

Chris' Bulldog TattooNo, Chris didn't attend the University of Georgia, home of the famous bulldog, UGA. He just loved bull dogs and when his parents wouldn't let him get one (they already had two German shorthaired pointers), he did the next best thing… he got a bull dog tattoo.

It seems only right that the Foundation would adopt his bull dog tattoo as its official mascot.
