Supporting a Community Living Family


 

This year we have chosen a local Fort Erie family supported by Community Living~Fort Erie as the recipient.  

The individual the club chose to support is Cameron, a 17-year-old who currently lives at home with his family in Fort Erie. 

Cameron is a caring & social young man who enjoys listening to music, watching hockey and [always tries to portray a positive attitude].   He requires full physical assistance on a daily basis.  Recently Cameron developed a skin breakdown due to his inability to shift his weight in bed. This is being managed medically.  To ensure healing and protection from future skin breakdown, [a clinician has recommended a Roho mattress].  Due to limited funding the family is unable to purchase this much-needed mattress.

To help raise money for this worthy local Charity, please join us in the 2nd Annual Fort Erie Golf Club Wednesday Night Guys League Charity Golf Tournament.  Whether you submit a 4 person team (open to anyone), sponsor a hole, make a donation, come for the meal, or simply contribute to our prize table, you will make a definite and immediate impact.  Please visit the Fort Erie Golf Club’s facebook page for updated information.  The downloadable forms for prize donations, hole sponsorship and entry form are linked below. 

Please notice time change~ 11 AM start.

Please contact me by phone at (905) 871-3616 or by email big.redmunds@gmail.com.
