Well, technically calling all golfers who will be in the Pittsburgh area this coming Saturday. Please consider this your official invitation to join us for the 15th Annual Grant Channell Memorial Golf Outing.
If memory serves me correctly this is my tenth year volunteering at this fundraiser. All proceeds go to help Dr. Kirkwood (at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Cancer Institute) battle Melanoma cancer. Dr. Kirkwood has been able to use the over $140k we have raised to keep researchers employed and acquire new equipment.
Our outing is named after Grant Channell, a friend’s husband who died entirely too young from melanoma. You are welcome to read Grant’s story here.
Here are the details…

Speaking of raffle…I GOT THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPION PITTSBURGH PENGUINS TO DONATE AN AUTOGRAPHED FLEURY JERSEY. Yes, it is just going in the regular ole raffle. Just a few dollars worth of raffle tickets might get you #29′s autographed jersey. If you don’t golf, maybe register for lunch and come support the outing that way?
