I tackle all things social for Bleacher Report in the UK. If there's a ball, a clock or a scoring system, I'm usually sitting down and watching it.
CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT TO RESTORE SIGHT TO THE BLIND
The inaugural Seva Charity Golf Tournament to restore sight to the blind takes place on Monday, April 20, 2015, at the Sequoyah Country Club in the Oakland Hills, 4550 Heafey Road, Oakland CA. 100% of the proceeds go towards financing eye surgeries in the poor countries of the world. The tournament is being produced by an all-volunteer team.
“80% of the world’s 39 million blind people could have their sight restored by a simple 15 minute operation costing an average of only $50,” says Jack Blanks, Executive Director of Seva. “I can think of no other way that so many lives could be transformed, for such a small investment.”
“Seva specializes in curing blindness by performing low-cost cataract eye surgeries in the poorer countries of the world, such as India, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, and East Africa. Eye surgeries in the USA typically cost thousands of dollars, but are now being performed for only $50 in the Third World, due to innovations created by Seva. Jack Blanks is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-845-7382 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tournament is open to golfers of all skill levels. It will feature a shotgun start at Noon with a 4-person Texas scramble. The suggested donation is $200 per person ($175 before April 1st) or $700 per foursome. This includes:
• 18 holes of golf, golf cart
• Continental breakfast
• Boxed lunch
• Wine, beer, and beverages
• Putting contest
• Gift bag valued at more than $100
• Free massage before and after the tournament
• K-vest/Bio-feedback clinic
• Silent auction
• Awards Ceremony, with complimentary appetizers, wine, beer, and refreshments.
Corporate Sponsorships and Hole Sponsorships are available. In-kind donations are most appreciated. Ads may be purchased in the Program Booklet. Volunteers are also sought to promote the tournament and also to work on the day of the tournament.

I raelly don't knkow about your latest piece, man. I know your articles are supposed to be gossip on results/goals/plays/ etc but still, that purely fuels hate on Rooney and does nothing else. That piece makes it seem as if all Rooney knowws how to do as a captain is shout at his teammates but at that situation it was the right thing to do...
Clearly Fred and Jo and not the berst strikers in Brazil. Could you do an article on upcoming strikers from Brazil? thanks.
Hey Mark, I just got accepted to the writer program and would love to get chatting to you. Do you have an email I can reach you on?

Hi Mark we are looking for guest bloggers for our cricket website http://www.cricanalysis.com. Do let us know if you can contribute articles. Thanks!
Hey m8, on the topic of world football maybe u should do a piece on roland duchatelet. The guy just bought his 5th football club, now owns Standard liege (Belgium) Charlton athletic ( UK) and 3 first/second division clubs in other countries. Surely must be a unicum in world football
mark, explain to me how the following quote from eto'o is any sort of admission that he deserved a red card:
"Maybe I should have been sent off. But I'm not the referee. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but we must respect decisions from the officials.
During the match in the first moments, the game was very passionate on both sides, but people know I'm not violent.
I was really sad to see Jordan on the floor - I want to take this opportunity to say sorry."
notice how he clearly says "Maybe I should have been sent off" not "I deserved a red..." or "I should have been sent off..." or anything along those lines. there's no admission of guilt at all. all he admitted to is that the ref made a judgement call.
are you really that insecure as a writer that you have to blatantly lie and mislead people with your titles to get them to click on your stories?
