Ben Cox Fundraising Effort

Wanted to point your attention to one of the greatest rags to riches fundraising efforts in recent history. Jim Colton, a golf lover who often takes caddies while playing Ballyneal Golf Club, was touched when he heard of a skiing/snowboarding accident to one of the regular caddies. Ben Cox was partially paralyzed and his life was changed forever. Jim thought he could raise a couple thousand dollars through his golfing mates by staging a Golf A Thon at Ballyneal in order to help out Ben and his family with medical bills. The word spread very quickly and donations have come from all over the golfing community. To date over $100,000 has been raise for Ben's medical care. What a great "Man For Others" Jim Colton is.
Jim played 155 holes in one day, all walking with a caddy. Over 45 miles of golf at Ballyneal Sun up to Sun down. Glad we could help with a donation prize, a threesome at Cal Club. See Jim's Blog link below.
