Survivors Ready? Tee It Up on Sept. 14 to Benefit San Diego Hospice
Grief and loss programs benefit from third annual tournament
WHAT: Third Annual San Diego Hospice Invitational Golf Tournament
WHEN: Tuesday, September 14
10:30am: Player Registration, Barbeque, and Warm-up
12 noon: Shotgun Start

WHERE: The Crosby (Crosby National Golf Club)
17102 Bing Crosby Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92127
WHO: Supporters including former San Diego Padres and New York Yankees pitcher and San
Diego native David Wells.
WHY: The event helps fund bereavement programs through The Center for Grief Care and Education at San Diego Hospice, including Camp Erin San Diego, a unique summer camp for children who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
The tournament offers golfers a rare opportunity to play one of the most beautiful and exclusive private courses in San Diego. Theme aside, no one will need to eat bugs, build a hut, or race through a jungle to participate, but there WILL be some unique visual elements and challenges based on the “Survivor” theme for golfers.
Thankful appreciation goes to the generous sponsors including Championship Sponsor Jack in the Box Foundation, Eagle Sponsors Carlo & Jan Cetti Family Foundation and Sutcliffe Foundation, Birdie Sponsors Owen and Marilyn O'Brien, Par Sponsor Marrokal Design & Remodeling, and all our Tee Sponsors.
