Golf, Glorious Golf

Team Surgical Associates of North Texas. 
We should have had an award for
Best Dressed!
This past Friday (October 8, 2010) 87 golfers gathered at Coyote Ridge Golf Club as part of the 2nd Annual Friends of deVille Golf Tournament:  Another Shot FORE Children, presented by Surgical Associates of North Texas, benefiting Dallas Adoption agency Hope Cottage.  The weather was superb, the greens called and more people turned out than we were expecting.  Best of all, we doubled the income raised over last year's tournament.  All the monies raised benefited the programs at Hope Cottage which include domestic adoption, foster-to-adopt, adoption education , services to birth mothers, family counseling and post adoption services

The tournament was started by one of our own Hope Babies, Todd deVilleneuve.  He called us last year and said he wanted to do something for the agency that has meant so much to his family.  His friends call him "deVille", hence the name of the tournament - Friends of deVille.  Scott's father, Allan deVilleneuve, MD is a local pediatrician who stills sees Hope Babies as part of his practice.  Brother Scott deVilleneuve, MD of Surgical Associates of North Texas was also adopted from Hope Cottage.  Mom Virginia rounds out the deVilleneuve clan and they pull out all the stops recruiting family and longtime friends to make the tournament a rousing success. 

Third place, with a score of 62, went to The Davis Team.  2nd place was taken by Surgical Associates of North Texas Team #1 with a score of 60 and First Place was grabbed by Joe Coursy, Mike Doeden, Patel Pranay and Kyle Stevens.
