We are very excited about the 10th Richie Nelson Celebration of Life Golf Outing. Since the inception of this event, and through the generosity of our sponsors and participants, we have donated over $365,000 to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, a cause very near and dear to Richie and the entire Nelson Family.
Our net proceeds from 2014 were just over $41,000. So where did your contributions go? You made it possible for 40 children to attend the Ronald McDonald Summer Camp for a week - a place where kids with cancer and their siblings can enjoy just being kids - a time when kids can talk openly about cancer and everybody else understands.
You made it possible for us to participate in Adopt a Room, where, in Richie’s name, we sponsor the upkeep of two rooms for one year, one at each Ronald McDonald House in Philly.
You made it possible for us to replace the computers in the playroom with secure tablets that only have games for the kids.
This year we will have the many skills contests from years past as well as the chance to win a new car and other prizes for a hole-in-one. The silent auction, which turned out to be loads of fun last year, will also be back. Legendary Flyers goalie, Bernie Parent will join us again this year.
On behalf of the Nelson family, we want to thank you all for your wonderful show of support to celebrate the life of our dear son, brother and friend, Richie. Please join us to play golf, come for cocktails and dinner, or just make a donation in Richie’s name. We look forward to your participation.
This year as in all all years we are looking for golfers, whole sponsors, gift certificates, patrons, dinner guests and donations. Come and have a great time.
Philadelphia Flyers Legend Bernie Parent will be on hand to golf as he always does.
