The 5th Annual
CJR Invitational Golf Tournament
February 25, 2014 marks the seventh anniversary of Caleb’s passing. I think about him every day and can only imagine what he is doing now? Because of you, Caleb surely will never be forgotten! I’d like to thank all of our past sponsors for their continued support and would also like to welcome our new sponsors. Your generosity has been greatly appreciated over the years. Without you, none of what we do would be possible!!!
We previously announced that the CJR Memorial Foundation would fund a project to build a playground in Hawley’s Bingham Park to be dedicated in Caleb’s name. This past July, we applied for a DCED Grant from the state that would cover roughly 80% of the necessary funds required for the project. I am pleased to announce that we received a grant in the amount of $225,167 from the Department of Community and Economic Development! In addition, we were awarded a grant in the amount of $15,000 from the Wayne County Redevelopment Authority. With both grants and what we anticipate raising at this year’s event, we will reach our goal and begin construction this spring. We plan to break ground in April of 2014 and hope to complete the project by the end of May. This play system will cater to children from 5—12 years of age, and will also be handicapped accessible. A playground that ALL children in our community will enjoy for many years to come
As in past years, we will continue to support The Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia brain cancer research team. There they continue to discover methods for treatment of not only brain tumors but many types of cancer. Researchers are closer and closer to finding a cure. In addition, a portion of your donation will go towards sponsoring a room at the Ronald McDonald House for the year in Caleb’s name. The Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
The 5th annual CJR Memorial Invitational Golf Tournament is just around the corner. Thanks to the contributions and thoughtfulness of every sponsor, participant and volunteer; we have become a huge success. Join us again in celebrating Caleb’s memory at this year’s event.
The tournament will be held:
Monday, April 21st
The Country Club at Woodloch Springs
Thank you in advanced for your time and consideration while keeping Caleb’s memory alive.
With a warm heart,
