5th Annual Graham Imre Memorial Golf Tournament
The Graham Imre Memorial Golf Tournament is an annual golf tournament held in memory of my brother Graham. We also take this time to remember my mom, who passed away from cancer three years before Graham. Me, My cousin Jeff, along with the support of my dad Lindsay, my Aunt Louise and Uncle Whitey, cousins Jeff and Julie Wyville, and countless others are pleased to organize this tournament as a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.
For those of you less familiar, we lost Graham in the winter of 2014 at just 25 years of age after a short but valiant fight against cancer. Three years before that in 2011, we lost my mom Karen also to cancer.
It has been a tough few years that have followed, but looking forward to this event every year has been a saving grace. My family and i appreciate the many people who come from all over to show their support.
We are excited to celebrate the life and memory of Graham as well as my mom. This is sure to be a fun day full of golf, laughs, food and drinks. I personally never lose sight of the reason we are there. I miss my brother and my mom. And while i know they are gone, getting together once a year to remember and honor their lives is important to me. I know we all enjoy the opportunity to reminisce and tell stories and share memories.
In the past, we have raised money for Cancer Research. This year, we decided to direct the funds towards helping pateints and their families going through treatment. This money helps to fund various programs created by the Canadian Cancer Society to help cancer patients, their famalies, survivors, etc. Donations will assist with programs such as Cancer Information Service, Peer Support Service and Community Services Locator.
Last year was our best year yet. We raised over $3,600 through the website and golf tournament. This year, with it being the 5th Annual, i set the goal at $5,000. I appreciate the generosity of my family and friends, and we are making a real difference for familieis in Canada who are going through what my family went through.
