11th Annual Rick Mommsen Jr. & Steve Ditchfield Memorial Gol

The 11th
Annual Rick Mommsen Jr. & Steve Ditchfield Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at
Blackmoor Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, SC on Saturday July 28th with a shotgun start at 1:00pm.

Each year Blackmoor and its staff host the tournament to raise funds for the Hospice and
Palliative Care Foundation. All proceeds of this captain’s choice tournament are donated to
HPCF’s Camp Hands of Hope, a bereavement camp for children ages 5-18 and their families
who have recently lost a loved one. These families attend a weekend long retreat at Ripley’s
Aquarium where they are involved in fun and therapeutic activities to help them on their grief
journey as well as memorial activities to remember their loved ones. Camp Hands of Hope has
been repeatedly recognized as one of the top bereavement camps in the country by the
National Alliance for Grieving Children and the New York Life Foundation.

There are several ways that you can help contribute to this fundraising event for a great cause.
1. Play in the tournament- The cost per player is only $75 and includes cart and green
fees, beverages, and full hot dinner after the tournament.
2. Sponsor a hole- For only $100 you can have your personal message or company
name/logo placed on a hole of the course for all the participants to see.
3. General donation. Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit
foundation and all donations are tax deductible.

Strand Strawless Summer

Strand Strawless Summer has begun! Over 100 restaurants participating so far. It's easy. Restaurant owners - let your waitstaff know not to give out straws to customers unless they ask for one. Waitstaff-  just bring the drinks to the table and walk away If a customer asks for a straw then go ahead and give one. This will help decrease the litter in our ocean and on our beaches and our roads. This will also decrease the plastic litter that birds and fish and other sea creatures are eating and dying from. If you are a restaurant owner please FB message Plastic Free Myrtle Beach We have Flyers for you to post and buttons for you waitstaff to wear saying- We only give straws upon request ask us why -. We will also add you to our list of participating restaurants. If you are a customer you can tell you waiter - please, do not bring me a plastic straw. This is a small piece of the fight against plastic pollution. Thanks!
