Dear Players, Sponsors, and Supporters:
As we prepare for our Annual Norfleet Open Bill Shockley Memorial Golf Tournament, I am so proud to mark our 39th year supporting the fight against cancer. Many of you have sponsored, played, or supported our continuing effort to keep our friend Bill Shockley’s memory alive through this tournament.
We started 39 years ago to raise a little money to give to the Leukemia society of America basically to make his family and ourselves feel like we honored his memory. Then the next year came, and once again we were out to help the family get past this terrible early loss of life. As time went on, each year it got more popular and started growing. The rest is history.
As founder and chairman, I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished with your help. Together we have donated nearly $400,000 to provide special programs as well as direct services for cancer victims.
Many of you that receive this letter have donated hundreds of dollars. Some have donated thousands of dollars over the 38 years. And some have played in the tournament all 38 years.
I can only say thanks on behalf of Bill Shockley, his family, Danny Justice and family, and of course the Norfleet family. And a special thanks to all the people who have worked behind the scenes to keep this tournament moving forward. I hope you will find a way to play, sponsor, or support us as we celebrate 39 years of fighting cancer.
This year’s tournament will be held on Sunday, September 12th– 9 am at Tri-County Golf Club, 8170 N County Rd 400 W, Middletown, IN. If you have any questions please feel free to call or text 765-425-6797. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.
