December 2011 Bear Creek Fundraiser Supports
Fight Against Breast Cancer By Gloria Karlak
The successful Rally for the Cure golf tournament, luncheon and charity auction
at Bear Creek Golf Club on October 27 raised much-needed funds for both the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Michelle’s Place in Temecula.
A sea of pink outfits, pink ribbons, and pink decorations were displayed at the
signature Jack Nicklaus course in Murrieta where the event was held this fall. A lun- cheon followed the golf tournament and members of the local community showed their support for the cause by purchasing raffle tickets for gift baskets displayed in the Bear Creek clubhouse.
Murrieta Mayor Randon Lane made a brief presentation at the luncheon and laud- ed the women for their involvement in the fight against breast cancer.
Chairwoman Jackie Raspler said that more than $9,000 was raised at the event
through tee box sponsorship, caddy rentals, and a charity auction that featured 65 unique gift baskets.
The donations are being shared between the Susan G. Komen Foundation and
Michelle’s Place in Temecula. While the Komen Foundation is a national organization that supports breast cancer awareness, prevention, and treatment, Michelle’s Place in Temecula focuses on women from the local area.
Michelle’s Place is a breast cancer resource center and guides women through
diagnosis and treatment. They host a Pink Ribbon Assistance program that provides a toolkit for newly diagnosed women as well as temporary financial support to women undergoing breast cancer treatment if they request assistance.
“We were proud that we could support these two very important organizations,”
said Chairman Jackie Raspler. She thanked all the supporters who donated items for the raffle or who sponsored a tee box at the tournament.
The annual event has become a staple in the Murrieta-Temecula area.
Blankets Needed for Horse Sanctuary For just $40 you can provide
warmth and keep a horse dry all winter. Villa Chardonnay needs 17 waterproof horse blankets. The horses arrive at the facility for a variety of reasons. In these tough
economic times many people can no longer afford to maintain, feed, or offer basic health care for their horses and have to surrender their animals. Sadly, some horses are abandoned and left to starve. Villa
Chardonnay needs your help to continue caring for these horses. To donate or to find out more about this nonprofit organization go to: www.villachardonnay.org
