(E) $ 20K for Cancer Research and Adopt-A-Minefield

 

 

Tuesday, September 30th over 136 golfers participated in an
inaugural Croatian American 2003 Golf Outing.  Croatian
Americans and their friends raised over $ 20,000 at the
Long Island’s Colonial Springs Golf Course to benefit two
charities:

- American Cancer Society – “Babe Zaharias Memorial
Tournaments of Long Island”  This fine organization funds
breast and prostate cancer research and is dedicated to
eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing
cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer
through research, education, advocacy and service.

- Adopt-A-Minefield - United Nations Association of the
USA.  U.S. Department of State has taken a lead role by
providing matching funds for mine clearing projects in
Croatia.  There are still more than a million landmines
unremoved in Croatia. During the last eight years more than
1034 people have been injured and  410 were killed.
Demining is a very long and expensive project and it has a
long way to go.

Ms. Beth Sachs of American Cancer Society/Director Babe
Zaharias Memorial Tournaments thanked Mr. Vladimir Val
Blaskovic, Chairman of the Golf Outing on a $ 10,000
donation.
Ms. Nahela Hadi, Adopt-A-Minefield Executive Director was
grateful for the $ 10,000 donation Adopt-A-Minefield
received.

Over 200 in attendance saw a beautiful example of Croatian
Americans of greater New York together with their American
friends raise funds for 2 noble causes. They promised to
come back next year.
