Olathe, KS (PRWEB) May 21, 2006
When longtime friends Rick Davidson and Michelle Bradley, along with her husband Rick and 5 others, undertook the mission of bringing awareness to Spinal Cord Injury in a Coast to Coast trip last June, little did they realize the impact it would have. During their stop at the White House, they were able to speak quite extensively about issues relating to disability and the inability many people have in being able to remain in their home and community. Upon return to their homes in Olathe, KS, they began to think about the impact of the meeting and decided to make some changes of their own. After much work and research, Michelle along with Rick’s mother, Velma, and another friend, Don Cunningham, formed a not-for-profit organization called Positive Changes.
In planning fundraisers to continue the efforts of the organization, many celebrities and noted figures were contacted for appearances. One of the most thrilling contacts is the invitation to President George W. Bush to attend the golf tournament. “When we received the letter that he was conceivably going to be attending, we got so excited” says Bradley, co-founder of Positive Changes, Inc. “We all understand that with the way our world and events are today, his schedule may not allow it” said Bradley “but we’re all keeping our fingers crossed.”
The event will be held in late July and will consist of both morning and afternoon tee times, a wonderful catered lunch by The Fat Hogg Barbeque, and an excellent dinner and awards banquet following the days events. There will also be an auction and cocktail party on Sunday night preceding the tournament.
