2019 NEGU GOLF CLASSIC HIGHLIGHTS
On September 21, 2020 the Jessie Rees Foundation will host the 10th Annual NEGU Golf Classic. While our first NEGU Golf Classic will always hold a special place in our hearts since Jessie was with us that first year, we are super excited to host this year’s event especially with the impact COVID-19 has had on our Foundation. We truly hope you will plan to join us and celebrate 10 years of golfing together to raise awareness and resources for kids fighting cancer.
The goal this year is to raise essential funds to send Jessie’s special edition Winter Wonderful JoyJars to Courageous Kids in the midst of their battle this holiday season. Each one of these fun filled JoyJars costs $25 to stuff and ship to a child. We hope to continue the tradition of reaching over 10,000 children. Yes, that is a BIG goal, but every year, as a result of the generosity of people like you, we have exceeded our goal!
Our current plan, as a result of the impacts of COVID-19, will require us to hold 2 separate shot-gun format start times with 2 smaller, physically distanced, gatherings during a post-golf meal and short program. We are committed to honoring all of the local health guidelines set in place to ensure the safety of you, our amazing volunteers and our dedicated staff.
While the day may look a little different than previous years, we are confident you and your guests will still enjoy the special day we have planned for you. We need your support now, more than ever!
Thank you for helping us honor Jessie and keep the JOY flowing this holiday season. Looking forward to seeing you September 21st!
“I have been to every NEGU Classic and they simply are the best charity golf tournament around. Well run, great attention to detail and very clear who is benefiting with all the money raised!” – NEGU Golf Classic Attendee
“Because of this one event each year, we get to send JoyJars to thousands of Courageous Kids fighting cancer around the world. Most importantly, this means we get to start a relationship with a child and a family, so we can provide them the needed long-term support and encouragement so they Never Ever Give Up!”– Erik Rees, Jessie’s Daddy
