It’s that time of year! Break out those clubs and join us on the golf course in support of a wonderful organization. This year the Summit team will be playing for George Mark Children’s House (GMCH), a pediatric palliative care center located in San Leandro. GMCH first opened its doors in 2004. This year marks the facility’s 15th year providing children in our communities with safe, compassionate medical care in the comfort and warmth of a home-like setting. Families who turn to GMCH for respite care and end-of-life care for their children receive resources that emphasize quality of life and wholeness of spirit in a supportive atmosphere. “Parents don’t say, ‘This is where my child died.’ They say, ‘This is where my child lived.’ That’s very different,” said Joan Fisher, George Mark’s Medical Director in a recent article in the New York Times Magazine.
To date, Summit has raised more than $400,000 for charities like GMCH. Help us continue the tradition. We hope to see you on Tuesday, September 24, on the beautiful Falls Course at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville. Come learn more about the groundbreaking work of George Mark Children’s House and to have some fun while raising money for a very special cause. Not a golfer? That’s OK! Sign up and join us for cocktails, a gourmet dinner, silent auction and raffle.
