A huge thank-you to all who were involved with the first annual WingNutz Charity Golf Tournament on June 13.

The tournament, which benefited the Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) Program, was a huge success, and raised $4,700.

It could not have been so successful, and would not have been possible, without the many wonderful people and companies that participated, and were so generous by donating prizes, money, products, services and time. The kindness and generosity was truly overwhelming, and point out what a special community we belong to; your generosity is truly making a difference.

The SUDC, in affiliation with the CJ Foundation for SIDS, is conducting valuable research to help end the senseless and unexplained deaths of young children all over the world, who are dying for no apparent reason. The research, support and advocacy the SUDC offers has been an invaluable resource to our family after the loss of our 131⁄2-month-old daughter Kindall in July 2007. Unfortunately, there are many other families who have been struck with this inconceivable loss as well.

Also, a most heartfelt thank you to Matt Archambault whose brainchild this was. None of this would have happened without all his selfless hard work and planning.

Also, a big thank you to Grady Hazelton of WingNutz Bar and Grill; Grady has been a constant source of support. His unending generosity and unconditional resources are so immensely appreciated. We could never thank them both enough for taking on the SUDC as the charity of their choice, and for the generosity they showed in planning the golf tournament and free barbecue, but also for the many other things, as well as the personal time it takes to pull off an event like this.
