"Putt" An End To Mito 2012

It gives me great joy to announce "Putt" An End To Mito was another successful golf tournament!!  The tournament raised $17,125 for the University of Texas Mitochondrial Center of Excellence at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital.  This money is going to help accomplish some great things for Trace and all his "Mito Friends". 

It was a cold windy day, but despite the weather the tournament was full.  It was hard to hold back the tears of joy seeing how many people showed up to support my sweet Mister.  Clinic director, Mary Kay Koenig MD, spoke before tournament play to raise awareness of Mitochondrial Disease.  Due to the hard work of some wonderful people, we had some amazing raffle baskets this year.  Everyone had a great time playing and headed back in the club house for dinnner.  As everyone enjoyed dinner, we announced and awarded prizes to the top 10 teams and drew for all raffle prizes & baskets.  We ended the evening having a great time with all of our family & friends.  It was an amazing day!! 

I want to extend a huge THANK YOU!! to all of the players, sponsors, volunteers, everyone who made donations and all of our family & friends who helped make this tournament such a success.  I can't wait until next year!!!
