Doug Westcott, Desert Highlands

Dear Friend,

I am asking for your help! The Staff at Desert Highlands have committed to participate in PGA Golf Day. PGA Golf Day is an initiative put together by local PGA professionals to raise money for Special Olympics Arizona and the SWSPGA Foundation. As a result of generous donations, we have raised over $65,000 over the past 8 years through our involvement with PGA Golf Day .

Why is this so important to me? After participating in this fundraiser over the past five years I realize how important Golf and Sports are to the athletes of the Special Olympics. This organization provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The SWSPGA Foundation is the ten-year-old, non-profit arm of the Southwest Section PGA. The Foundation has generously contributed to the community and charities like the 9/11 Relief Fund, Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, and Phoenix Children's Hospital.

We have committed to play 108 holes of golf in one day on my home golf course, Desert Highlands, on September 15, 2016, that’s over 22.37 miles of golf, and I have sponsored myself for $216.

Please help us reach our goal of $10,000 by sponsoring me for $50, $100, $200, or more. Every little bit counts! Best of all, your pledge is 100% tax deductible. We calling on you this year to pledge your support as we strive to reach a goal of $100,000 for Special Olympics and the SWSPGA Foundation.

I really need and appreciate your support. I assure you, your pledge will go a long way in our efforts to provide quality sports training and athletic competitions for Special Olympic athletes and benefit many local charitable organizations supported by the SWSPGA Foundation.

Thank you for your consideration.
