The Adriana Funaro Memorial Golf Tournament For Leukemia/Lymphoma Society & Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program at B.C. Children Hospital.
Once again, we would like to thank each and every one of you, from the bottom of our hearts, for supporting the Julian Tile Charity Golf Tournament and helping us fund raise for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as well as the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Laboratories at B.C. Children’s Hospital.
We would like to dedicate this Tournament to Adriana Funaro, our Burnaby Sales Manager who, at the young age of 44, succumbed to Myelodysplastic Syndrome (a blood disorder). Adriana was a beautiful, intelligent and hardworking wife and mother and a sales manager that everyone loved. In her memory, today we are fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program at B. C. Children’s hospital has grown to 7 laboratories over the last 20 years. The incredible dedication to Michael’s vision is touching and the foundation has raised an incredible 10 million dollars to date. We are proud to partner with them and help fund raise for this great cause also.
Our past 6 tournaments have raised over $200,000 in charitable donations and we look forward to an even more successful tournament this year. As you may already know, Julian Tile will match and donate the value of the green fees of all the golfers playing today to our charitable causes equally.
We would like to thank our numerous sponsors and, in particular, Giusti Wine and Custom Building Products for their generous sponsorship contributions.
Thank you all for helping us make a big difference in the lives of our province’s sick kids and those afflicted with Blood Cancers and disorders.
