Golf Reveals Your Character

Hall of Fame golf teacher Percy Boomer once said, “If you wish to hide you character, do not play golf.” Well, when it comes to golf events at Lifeline we believe the opposite—a round of golf can actually reveal how much you care about orphans around the world and giving children a hope and future. And why would you want to hide that?

So, if you desire to “reverse every natural instinct and do the opposite of what you are inclined to do,” you might end up with the perfect golf swing, as golf great Ben Hogan predicted, or you can let the “adventure…romance…disaster and comedy intertwined” that is the game of golf, reveal your true character (Harold Segall). Then we have the perfect opportunities for you!

First, support Lifeline in the “Birdies for Charity” program of the Regions Charity Classic, May 12-16, 2010. We will receive every single penny of the donations generated on our behalf and you have a chance to win great prizes too when you pitch in to help us! Simply make a pledge of $0.02 or more per birdie that is made during the tournament by the Champions Tour Players, or a flat pledge of $10 or more. It is expected that 800 birdies are going to be made based on past tournaments. Also, the top ten organizations that raise the most money will receive additional funds of up to $10,000 from the Regions Charity Classic thanks to “Bonus Bucks” sponsor Sirote & Permutt.

Help us reach that goal by pledging here! The top ten pledges will receive two (2) Good-Any-Day Tickets to the tournament!

Next, join us on Tuesday, June 1, 2010 for the 5th Annual Lifeline Celebrity Classic for a day of golf and fellowship at Greystone Golf and Country Club! There are several sponsorship opportunities that will allow you put together a foursome and play a round of golf with local sports celebrities, win fabulous prizes and support the ministry of Lifeline. This is a day that our staff looks forward to every year and we hope that you can join us!

And remember, “There are two things you can do with your head down—play golf and pray” Lee Trevino.
