I'm a lifelong sports fan who has been recording every detail of NHL, NBA, MLB, MLS and College Football games for STATS in Chicago since back in the days of dial-up.
These days, I also write hockey for Bleacher Report and do daily updates on the Vancouver Canucks over at HockeyBuzz.com. I like a good competition no matter what the activity, so from time to time you'll find me covering other sports like golf, tennis and the Olympics.

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 email@example.com.
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.

Carol, enjoyed your President's Cup articles. I work for a company that fosters discounted golf fees and competitive non-varsity golf for college and young persons. I'd like to get you in touch with the NCCGA/CGP's leadership team as I think it would be a great article for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
