Ben Hutton Shootout for Alzheimer's

Greetings business owners,
Please be advised that I am the Event and Sponsorship Chair for 2nd Annual Ben Hutton Shoot-out for Alzheimer’s Golf Charity fund raising event.  As you may know, Ben is a locally raised NHL hockey player with the Vancouver Canucks.  He played for the Kemptville 73’s Junior A hockey club.  I coached Ben throughout his minor hockey career and I have deeply rooted connections with his family.  During the past few years I became well acquainted with Alzheimer’s disease as I witnessed Ben and his family helplessly attend to his Grandmother and Aunt who were afflicted with this disease.  This disease has no cure nor is there any treatment to stop its progression. 
This is a devastating disease, is irreversible and is not a normal part of aging.  Dr. Alois Alzheimer first identified the disease in 1906.  After all this time, Alzheimer’s is still a fatal disease that eventually affects all aspects of a person’s life: how they think, feel, and act.   Each person is affected differently.  It is difficult to predict symptoms, the order in which they will appear or the speed of their progression.  We must continue to raise funds to help people and their families dealing with Alzheimer’s and most importantly to find a cure. 
Our goal is to create a premier, unrivaled golf event at the Prescott course.  I've attached the Sponsorship/Registration package for your perusal.  Could you please have a look at it and if something appeals to you, could you please let me know so that we can discuss it.   I really want the Sponsors to feel like they are getting good value for their contribution to the event.  The funds raised stay within the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark area.  Last year the event raised just over $15,000.
If a Sponsorship opportunity does not fit within any Chamber members charitable donation guideline we would certainly welcome a gift donation to our silent/live auction fund raising activity. 
We are expecting 120-144 golfer registrations and would certainly welcome your attendance at the event.      
Many thanks for your consideration,
Allan R Joudoin
