Register now for our 7th Annual Memorial Golf Outing
Everyone’s favorite golf outing is back for our 7th year, and we hope to see you there! Your foursome purchase will help the CarsonStrong Foundation fund programs that provide therapeutic, medical, and educational opportunities for children and their families affected by cancer, including The Gift of Time Together.
This year, we are providing our golfers with a PGA Tour experience that includes a live leader scoreboard, GPS golf carts, and PGA pin placement and greens. Also, back by popular demand, each foursome will have a Firestone Country Club caddy.
The all-inclusive golf outing provides the opportunity to give back with a fun day out on the course! Each golfer will receive one mulligan, two chances for a $2,500 cash hole-in-one prize, unlimited beer and hard seltzer, a CarsonStrong swag item, and a shopping spree at the prestigious Glemoor pro shop. Additionally, the AM shotgun will enjoy breakfast sandwiches before golfing and lunch afterward. The PM shotgun will enjoy lunch before golfing and light appetizers following their time on the links.
Register now and reserve your preference of AM or PM start! Foursomes are $1,000 each with options to pay ahead or at the event.
Scholarships awarded to five Revere High School graduates
Earlier this month, we were honored to present scholarships totaling $4,500 to five Revere High School seniors. The scholarships are presented in memory of Carson Higgins, who would have been a graduating member of Revere’s 2022 class. Scholarship awardees were selected based on exemplifying generosity, kindness, love, grace, courage, family, teamwork, leadership, humor, volunteering, paying it forward, literacy, and education– traits that Carson embodied and encouraged in his short life.
$1,000 award winners: Owen Gartland, Ryan Cunningham, Jaden Yankovitz, and Aiden Zapisek
$500 award winner: Shay Makkar
Additionally, the foundation was able to give three Gift of Time Together applications to three students who are currently impacted by cancer.
“I will continue to strive to be like Carson by acting with kindness, courage, and a positive attitude. He has made a difference in many people’s lives, and I hope to do the same,” said Jaden Yankovitz, a 2023 recipient of the scholarship.
Gift of Time Together Spotlight: Gingerich Family
At the end of May, the Gingerich family packed their bags and headed down to the Dover area for a getaway thanks to the Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation’s The Gift of Time Together. Heidi, a mom of four, is currently battling stage 4 breast cancer. In need of a getaway from appointments, treatment, and just the busyness of life, they spent three days together in a beautifully secluded cottage. Heidi and Travis have four beautiful children ranging in age from 10 to one year old and love spending time together outside and playing games.
For this getaway, we partnered with Your Family’s Place to provide a beautiful cabin and no-preparation meals for their time away. Aside from swimming, hiking, and playing in the game room, the family was gifted a photoshoot and the opportunity to have these memories forever.
Your support allows us to send families affected by cancer on memorable getaways and give the gift of time together.
