Golf For The Cure – Golf event helps fight breast cancer
As members of our great community we have the responsibility to give back to those who are less fortunate and in need. Sheila Greco Associates is committed to doing just that.
Last Friday we played in Dr. Sheridan’s Golf for the Cure Tournament, what a great day. A completely sold out event resulted in once again exceeding expectations. Dr. Sheridan, as always welcomes and thanks all the golfers, hugging many of them as he continues to show his passion for the cause. He should be proud since this event combined with other smaller ones has raised $615,000 to date. But he doesn’t do it alone. He surrounds himself with a strong family network and team of energetic, pleasing volunteers who also make it one of the best annual golf tournaments in our city. I know I truly enjoy the day for a number of reasons.
Giving back has been a longstanding practice of mine and our company included. We agree that yes money is always needed but actually participating as an individual and company to community events, coaching athletic teams and supporting school functions is what can really make a difference. We all do just that. Each and every one of us. It has become our company tradition to support local soup kitchens, and Catholic Charities not just around the holidays , but many times throughout the year. We enjoy adopting families for Thanksgiving & Christmas where we spoil the children and adults with toys, dinners and our time. It is wonderful to see our team look for things to support as well as having our own families join us as active and passive participants.
Personally, I really enjoy the intangible benefits of giving. It gives me a pleasant feeling of connectedness and the satisfaction of at least trying to make the world a better place. If you give what you can regularly to charities that make a difference you will be surprised at the benefits you reap. Sheila Greco Associates Gives Back To The Community and you can too!
