Making Me Smile

It is one month until Surgical Associates of North Texas presents the 2nd Annual Friends of deVille Golf Tournament:  Another Shot FORE Children, benefiting Hope Cottage.  Proceeds from this event support our many programs including domestic adoption, foster to adopt, aid to pregnant women and teen pregnancy educational programming. 

Scott & Todd deVilleneuve
The event was started by one of our Hope Babies, Todd deVilleneuve, owner of Todd deVille Custom Homes.  Todd and his brother Scott were adopted from Hope Cottage and Todd called us last year and said he wanted to do something to help an organization that has meant so much to his family over the years.  Todd's father, Dallas pediatrician, Allen deVilleneuve, still sees Hope Babies as part of his practice.  Todd gathered 72 of his friends (who call him deVille - hence the tournament moniker) and we had a glorious day of golf while raising more than $10,000. 

This year's tournament is set for Friday October 8th at Coyote Ridge Golf Club in Carrollton.  Surgical Associates of North Texas (Dr. Scott deVilleneuve and company) are the title sponsor and the fabulous folks at GEICO are Lunch Sponsors.  One of the benefits of being the Lunch Sponsor is that a label with your company logo, tagline, whatever you like, is put on each golfer's box lunch.  I checked with our friends at GEICO and asked them what they would like printed on the labels.  Here is what they sent me.  It just made my day and made me smile.  Thanks GEICO for helping children find loving, permanent homes and starting my day with a smile!

P.S.  If you are interested in playing in the tournament, e-mail Leslie Clay, Chief Development Officer.  Individual golfer cost is $125 and sponsorships start at $300.
