It is a great realization that life can be so short, so it's important to take every opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause that touches us personally. - Ron Berrett, CEO of LinenTablecloth
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
Leading online linen retailer LinenTablecloth, along with other Pacific Northwest-based vendors, helped Breast Friends raise almost $30,000 during the 2nd Joy of Life Golf Tournament last July 26, 2013 at the Stone Creek Golf Club in Oregon City.
Breast Friends is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for female cancer patients by providing various types of direct patient services including emotional and financial assistance. The group also offers outreach programs to the patients’ family and friends and equip them with ways on how to express proactive support.
“We raised just under $30,000 for the total event, which is the second highest tournament we've held (even though our audience was a little smaller than in the last two years). Although our attendance numbers were a bit down, spirits were high,” co-founders Becky Olson and Sharon Henifin said in a joint statement. Auctions and raffle draws also highlighted the fund-raising event.
In his speech, LinenTablecloth CEO Ron Berrett explained why the company supported this endeavor and decided to be this season’s title sponsor. “All of Breast Friends’ services are available to the public at no cost. I really admire the volunteer work that they do. We’re all so busy in our lives and rarely do we take time to volunteer and do these kinds of things. It’s amazing that we’re all here today. It is a great realization that life can be so short, so it's important to take every opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause that touches us personally.”
Aside from LinenTablecloth, other notable business organizations who made this event a successful one for Breast Friends were:
Breakfast Sponsor: Bank of the West, Gary’s Vacuflo, Stone Creek Golf Course
Lunch Sponsor: Terrie Marshall
Hole in One Sponsor: Beaverton Kia
Cart Sponsor: Kaiser Permanente

“We want to thank those who supported the event either by volunteering, sponsoring, becoming an auction donor, or as a registered golfer, or team captain. Special thanks goes to our Title Sponsor, LinenTablecloth. We also thank and recognize our incredible golf committee, chaired by Martha Peterson. We thank you so much for your generosity and support throughout the year. We could not do what we do without you. It's people like you, and events like these that make it all possible,” Olson and Henifin stressed.
