[music] Hi, I'm volunteering for the William Raveis
Breast Cancer reasearch fund.
We're just here to support a good cause...support the cause. I just know it's a great cause
and I'm here to play golf with friends.
...to support the William Raveis Breast Cancer Fund.
We are having a great time at the William Raveis breast cancer event
We have a great event put together by our marketing team
and others. ....raise money for a great cause, William Raveis
Charitable Fund....have fun! We've pledged over $750,000
to UConn, and we're out here raising money and we've got a lot of agents
and coworkers that we work with and we're having a great time and support this wonderful cause.
I'm way better than what you just saw! [laughs]
I'm here in honor of Carolyn Deal who successfully battled breast cancer.
My mom died when I was nine of breast cancer in 1977 (woman: oh, I didn't even know that) so it means
it means a great deal to me. I'm a breast cancer survivor
5 years -- and so the cause is very important to me.
I have a few friends who are survivors, and really just looking for a cure.
....to help find a cure. This has been a company cause that came up when
Carolyn Deal started it and my godmother personally had breast cancer and uterine cancer
so when we did start this it did kind of hit home a little bit...she's a survivor but
so it was kind of somethiing that was easy to support. I have a mom and a step-mom
who both have breast cancer and they're both doing great, and so
you know I'm very grateful for having them and I'm hoping that we could
save a few more in the future. It means a lot to me personally
my mother had a long ten-year battle with cancer
and when I joined William Raveis and found out that one of their
long-term charitable arms was this group, I felt compelled to
be involved and I was very happy and honored to be a part of this tournament.
My aunt Jean had breast cancer so
I've been touched by it, so yeah, I guess I am.
I have a sister-in-law who's a breast cancer survivor, going on three years now. We've started off
this tournament with Steve, well it was Steve's idea, so you know Steve Csejka
So I put it together last year, it was like a shoestring budget
and we had a pretty decent turnout and we raised a pretty good amount of money
I'm doing this...my mother passed away from breast cancer
when I was ten years old, so
I'm playing for her. I just had a little girl,
Celeste Charlotte was born five and a half months ago
so I'm playing for her and I'm playing for my beautiful fiancee
Karen, just to raise awareness
to help with the Navigator program
which is a great program, and just coming out and having fun.
[music] We'd just like to thank everybody for participating
in the William Raveis invitational, play in the golf tournament, to all the players and all the
volunteers and everybody who helped chip in and donated. For a great cause
and everyone's done a great job. Our annual event, the breast cancer fundraiser
make sure you buy tickets for the breast cancer awareness, the Navigator program
and supporting the William Raveis breast cancer fund. And visit our
Facebook page. [music]
