Mark Thomas' Fundraiser:

"Give 18"

The plan is simple:

If every golfer gives $18.00 per year to fund cancer research we can have a significant impact on a disease that affects all of us.

100% of donations to the "Give 18" campaign go directly to fund critical cancer research projects.

Consider this:

There are 26.2 million golfers in the United States.

A golfer is defined as anyone ages 18 and above who played at least one regulation round of golf in the past 12 months.

They spent $19.7 billion on public and private green fees and dues, and an additional $4.7 billion on equipment (clubs, balls, bags, gloves, shoes) in 2002.

- Provided by The National Golf Foundation

The Numbers:
26,000,000 x $18.00 = $468 Million
13,000,000 x $18.00 = $234 Million
7,500,000 x $18.00 = $135 Million
3,750,000 x $18.00 = $67.5 Million
1,875,0000 x $18.00 = $33.7 Million
937,500 x $18.00 = $16.8 Million
468,750 x $18.00 = $8.4 Million
234,375 x $18.00 = $4.2 Million
117,187 x $18.00 = $2.1 Million
58,593 x $18.00 = $1+ Million

What You can do:

We are asking you to give $18.00 once a year and help make a difference!

Please consider a yearly donation of $18.00 and tell your friends, family and fellow golf enthusiasts to join us in our fight to beat cancer once and for all.
