November 5th was jam-packed with fun and sunshine at the Wildcat Golf Club with Satterfield & Pontikes Construction Inc. raising over $138,500 for the Adopt-A-Family program. Another record-breaking year for the tournament, S&P filled two courses with 53 teams all supporting the folks staying at the home.
The day started with a Putting Contest, Raffle Prizes, and a Spirit Pull (sponsored by Occucare International) while eager golfers checked-in and enjoyed a breakfast provided by the Houston Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center. After Charlie Fote welcomed the golfers, they hit the links and enjoyed the cool but sunny weather as well as snacks and beverages provided by Hart Plumbing. Although no one was able to scoop up that Hole-in-One private helicopter cruise for 6 provided by Million Air, they’ll have another chance to try for it next year as Million Air has already committed to coming back!
At the end of the tournament, the golfers returned to clubhouse to enjoy a delicious hot lunch provided by Veritex Bank, and listen to Randy Tillotson, Nora’s Home guest, share his transplant story and thank all for their support of the home. Said Randy, “I would like to thank the donors to Nora’s Home whole-heartedly for supporting a good cause and helping families during a time of need. Nora’s Home is doing a great thing and I can’t happen to not think of Nora, as well as the impact her legacy has made in the lives of so many as well.” Nora’s father, Dr. A. Osama Gaber, also addressed the attendees and expressed his appreciation of their support.
We add our thanks for all of our sponsors and the teams who came, but especially S&P for their generosity to the home for these past eight years. This annual tournament has raised to date $578,500 for the home, affording over 7,714 night stays for transplant families.
