I certainly hope everybody is kicking back enjoying this Mother's Day!
I am hoping that you will allow me take a minute of your time on behalf of my daughter Emily. As most of you know, Emily is a very active, intelligent, and athletic young lady with a heart of gold! She currently spends 14-18 hours a week training at the gymnastics gym (M, T, TH, F, every other Sat) and still maintains very high 90's on all of her grades. You may not know that she is becoming an avid golfer too. This new passion is in part because of a golf tournament that she entered two years ago to help raise money for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. This hospital is near and dear to Emily's heart as she has been a patient since she was two years old. TSRHC is a non profit hospital dedicated to Pediatric Orthopedic conditions. Below is a note from that Emily wrote asking for your help:
Dear Friends & Family,
Thank all of you for supporting me in KidSwing for 2 years now. I hope you continue this year. My 2010 goal is $5000. This year I'm not just playing in the tournament, I'm also helping, because I am a member of the Jr. Committee.
This year's tournament is very special because it represents the last year for Ben Sater to participate. He is the young man who founded KidSwing when he was 11. Now he is a Senior in high school. His dream is to raise $1 million by the time he turns 18 and he only needs to raise $180,000 to do it. This year I have a Great team to play with me in KidSwing and enjoy the fun with me. The player's names are Lindsey, and Stirling.
I would be honored if you could sponsor and help me in the tournament.
Emily has also put together a short video with more information about KidSwing:
There are several ways you can donate to her:
2. mail a check to our home payable to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital with KidSwing in the memo of the check
