The American Red Cross in the National Capital Region hosted the 12th Annual Dave Cole Charity Golf Classic on Monday, October 1, 2012 at Stonewall Golf Club in Gainesville, VA. Golfers from 18 different companies came to show their support for the Red Cross and raise money for local disaster relief programs.
The day was filled with laughter, smiles, great food, friendly competition, and golf, of course! Golfers enjoyed a silent auction, continental breakfast, catered luncheon, raffle prizes, and contests along with trophies for winners. “The tournament was successful and beautiful as always,” said Mike Flynn, golfer and employee for Anixter.
“It is wonderful to see how the community supports the Red Cross because the Red Cross, in turn, supports the community during times of disaster,” said Dave Cole, tournament namesake and former Chapter Chairman of the Board.
Deborah Campbell, Community Coordinator of the Prince William office; Anthony Mora, Chairman of the Golf Committee; and several hard-working employees and volunteers helped organize the event, making it a true success!
Overall, volunteers, employees, golfers, and coordinators alike enjoyed the Golf Classic. Linda Mathes, CEO of American Red Cross in the National Capital Region joined in the excitement, highlighting the joys of giving back to the local community. “People had a great time. They enjoyed terrific food and time with each other, all while saving lives,” said Mathes.
