Cathy’s kids - Spencer Insurance Agency, Inc

Help us help a great charity

This quarter Spencer Insurance will highlight Cathy’s Kids Foundation.  This is one of my favorite events and charity. Cathy Garry was a friend and client. She meant a lot to us.  Unfortunately cancer took her from us.  Her children started the Cathy’s Kids Foundation in honor of her memory.

To quote their Mission Statement: “The mission of the Cathy’s Kids Foundation is to provide comfort and joy to children currently suffering from the effects of cancer. We strongly embrace the idea that HOPE is the best weapon to fight cancer. Our annual Cathy Garry Memorial Golf Tournament raises funds in Cathy’s memory. All proceeds raised will help to send a child and his/her family to Walt Disney World. Please help us bring HOPE to a family in need.”

Cathy’s Kids has an annual golf outing at Center Square Golf Course.  Go to their website to get details.

We need you help to pick a Charity

I mentioned that Spencer Insurance will be donating $5 to a charity for every referral we receive.  We will mix it up a bit and donate to a different charity each quarter. 

For the second quarter we will be donating to Cathy’s Kids Foundation.  Cathy Garry was a good friend and her children and husband Jim have an excellent foundation in her memory. 

How can you help us out?

  • I need to pick three more charities this year for the donations from the Spencer Referral Reward$ Program
  • Email me at cspencer@spencerinsurance.com  with your suggestions
  • Our staff will pick three charities from your selections
  • Keep referring your friends, family and business associates to us so we can donate more to the charities.

At Spencer Insurance we believe in giving back to the community.  We donate to many neighborhood and local school events.  Thank you for helping us with these contributions to local charities.

Cathy Garry Memorial Golf Tournament was a great success!

The Cathy Garry Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Monday August 2nd.  It was a great success and a lot of fun.

Our foursome tied for first place at 9 under par but lost in a tie breaker.  It is the best my brothers in laws have played together in a long time.  The weather took a break from the hot and humid summer and delivered a pleasant day in the mid 80s with low humidity.  A day away from the office playing golf for a great cause was truly a pleasure.

Spencer Insurance was pleased to donate $5 for each referral we received from March 1st to August 2nd.  We received 44 referrals and were pleased to present a check for $220 in the name of all those who gave us a referral. I want to thank all those who referred business to us.  Your referral and donation in your name made a difference to a family with a child with cancer.

The proceeds of the Golf Tournament are being used to send a family who has a child with cancer to Walt Disney World.  What a great cause, thank you for letting us help out.

There is still time to make an individual donation.  Click this link to be directed to the website: http://golfforcathy.webs.com/individualdonations.htm.  

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Help the Garry Family send a family of a child with cancer to Disney World

I just wanted to add one more reminder for this wonderful event.  I hope to see you there!  This a repeat of  a previous blog.

Last September Tammy and I lost a good friend and client, Cathy Garry, to cancer.  Cathy’s first fight was with breast cancer.  After she successfully battled this terrible disease she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.  All of us who knew Cathy were amazed at her spirit.  Whenever we got together with Cathy and Jim the conversation was never about her battle with cancer.  She only wanted to know how our family was doing.   She certainly was an inspiration to us and a truly kind and loving person.

Cathy’s Kids Foundation is a registered non-profit foundation that was created by her three children and their spouses to aid families fighting the same battle with cancer as their family fought.  I cannot think of a better way her children could have kept her spirit alive. 

Check out their website at http://www.golfforcathy.com/  

 On Monday August 2, 2010 the Foundation will hold the first Cathy Garry Memorial Golf Tournament.  All proceeds raised at this event will help send a child who is fighting cancer and his/her family to Walt Disney World.  I urge you to support this event in any way possible.  If you like golf, sign up a foursome.  If you are not a golfer then you can still make a donation

All of us here at Spencer Insurance Agency want to help out in this great cause.  In addition to being a sponsor for the golf outing, Spencer Insurance will donate $5 for every referral we receive from you from March 1, 2010 until August 2, 2010. There is no limit to the number of referrals you send our way.  Please spread the word to your friends and family.

In addition if you can donate even a small amount we would be thrilled.  You can make individual donations through their website at http://golfforcathy.webs.com/individualdonations.htm.

I would like to thank you in advance for helping Cathy’s Kids Foundation send a child and their family to Walt Disney World.  I know all of us have been affected by this terrible disease and hope for a cure in the near future.
