The morning started at 6:45am with registration, goodie gift bags and breakfast snacks of coffee, juice, bottles of water, fresh fruit and Chick-Fil-A  sandwiches. The shotgun start at 8:00am was heartwarming to see, with all those golf carts lined up ready to support our cause. Committee Chair, Ed Noack, gave simple starting instructions and the day on the course proceeded smoothly. When the golf games ended, an afternoon BBQ lunch was served, followed by an awards ceremony and an auction of impressive items. Included were beautiful gift baskets for wine lovers, spa enthusiasts and margarita fiesta lovers, a Keurig coffee maker and assortment of coffee, a grand John Connally art collection of limited edition signed prints, a gold $50 buffalo coin, a $1,500. professional landscaping package, an autographed Texan football jersey…to just name a few. The auction was fast and exciting with professional auctioneer Ed Noack running the show!

The day ended with the presentation of a check for the Kennedy’s Disease Association. WOW!! So much work went into creating this Golf-Tournament-2011-2day…and we appreciate the Houston committee that spent uncounted hours of labor and money from their own pockets to make their vision a reality. The core committee consisted of Murray Williams, Ed and Nancy Noack, Louise and Charley Goforth, Verna and Mike Hoke and Krissy McLaren. All families affected by Kennedy’s Disease, thank you!
