Fore Her, a nonprofit organization in Santa Rosa Beach, is teed up and ready to host the sixth annual Fore Her Golf Outing on Sept. 28 at the Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club to raise money for local breast cancer patients.
“Each year this event grows and improves,” says founder Amy Walsh. “Based on what we’re working on for this year, it’s an experience that’s going to top every year before it.”
Featuring Sandestin Real Estate (SRE) as the presenting sponsor, the $110 fee per golfer includes breakfast, lunch, green fee and a cart. But attendees can expect even more, including a silent auction, food donated by Centennial Bank, beer samples from Grayton Beer Company, a chance to win a golf cart from Dixielectricar and an opportunity to compete for $1,000 in the third annual Helicopter Golf Ball Drop by Panhandle Helicopter.
“The cause supported by the Fore Her golf tournament is near and dear to our hearts here at SRE,” says Wendy Morton, director of marketing for Sandestin Real Estate. “We are proud to be a sponsor and support this amazing organization that is such a valuable resource for those in need in our local community.”
The money raised from this event will go directly to local individuals battling breast cancer, who are able to use the money to pay for their mortgage, car, utilities, medical expenses, a well-deserved vacation after recovering from treatments, or a last vacation with their families.
“Breast cancer impacts people and their families in so many different way,” says Ms. Walsh. “We want finances to be one less thing on their plate while going through such a tough time.”
The annual golf outing began as a gathering of Walsh’s family to celebrate the memory of her mother and her aunt, who both lost their battles with breast cancer. But, remembering how financially taxing breast cancer was on their family, they transformed the event into a fundraiser, creating the Jeanette Hansen/Barb Schultz Golf Outing in Saginaw, Michigan.
“When I moved to the Emerald Coast, I wanted to continue this tradition but in a slightly different way,” says Ms. Walsh.
Her family’s Michigan golf outing evolved into an incredible nonprofit and used the golf outing as the main source of funds each year, growing the organization and event into what it is today.
