A letter from Melissa & Blair regarding this year’s Madison Memorial Golf Tournament…
May 31, 2016
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the 7th Annual Madison Memorial Golf Tournament will not be going ahead as planned for this fall. The tournament which we co-ordinate in support of Angel Whispers unfortunately won’t be able to happen this year.…
Twelve and a half years ago when Blair and I lost our precious baby girl, we decided we wanted to do something to honor and memorialize her when we were strong and healthy again. We decided after many years of grief and healing that on her 10th birthday we would put on a golf tournament in her memory to raise money for a very important non-funded program, Angel Whispers. This golf tournament not only supports the much needed program, but also provides Blair and I the opportunity to keep our daughter’s memory alive while at the same time helping grieving families.
Due to the economy the way it is this year, we have decided to cancel this year’s tournament. Many people in our lives this year are struggling with just trying to keep a roof over their head and food on the table, to ask for more at this point we believe would be unfair.
We thank each and every one of you for supporting us in the past and look forward to many years to come of remembering all the lost babies and supporting a much needed service in our community. We are hoping the 7th annual Madison Memorial in 2017 will be bigger and better than ever.
If you are in a place where donating is possible for this year, the Angel Whispers program can definitely use your support. Please go directly to http://www.angelwhispers.ca/angelwhispers/ and click on Donate.
Thank you so much,
Blair and Melissa Kondro
