I think way more than 40%! Already I know of 8 charity tournaments east of Toronto that have been cancelled due to lack of the usual corporate sponsorship.

I think the issue that your charity is addressing is very near and dear to all of us. I mean women want to save themeselves, perfectly reasonable, and men love bewbies.... it's a match made in heaven. :D

BTW Lionel I'm considering playing if there's a TGN group looking for a 4th. :cool:

Equal rights!!! Why do we have to pay for prostate examination?

The stats say that more men die from prostate cancer than women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

I think its great we have the pink ribbon charity but what about the men?

Our club had an inaugural "blue ribbon" tournament for prostate cancer that was well attended by the men. Quite a few women got into the act as volunteers for registration, hole sponsorship, scoring and the like. All in all a great cooperative effort..........as it should behttp://www.torontogolfnuts.com/images/icons/icon14.gif

I assume you mean The Survivors Golf Tournament at Summit promoted by 10 members of Summit who are all 'survivors' of prostate cancer. The 4th annual is scheduled for June 15th, if it's going ahead and I haven't heard otherwise. Each year they raise about $100,000 for the charity.

I am seeing my firm pull almost 100% of golf tournament sponsorship this year, but I have already scheduled a couple of games with clients, so I suspect I will play about as much as last year, but the money will be more focused on 1-1 time, rather than sponsorship at events.
