Madrid Bodyboards Hosts Golf Tournament in San Clemente to Benefit Ron Ziebell and Family

Madrid Bodyboards will be holding a golf tournament Saturday, Nov. 15, 2008, at 11 a.m., to benefit Ron Ziebell and Family.  Ron, bodyboarder and owner of Alternative Surf Shops, broke his back and became paralyzed last June while bodyboarding the Wedge; he was not expected to walk again.  However, because of his determination, family support, and the thoughts and prayers friends and family, he is well on his way to a full recovery. It has, however, been a struggle for him and his family.

The support and generosity of his friends, family, and customers will enable Madrid to have great success in reaching its fundraising goal, which is $10,000 after expenses. To reach it, Madrid needs your assistance, and would love for you to come out and support their cause.

The tournament will be held at the beautiful Shorecliffs Golf Course in San Clemente, Calif.  The day itself promises to be fun-filled with camaraderie, awards, a raffle, and a terrific BBQ dinner.  A full field of 144 golfers is expected!  While funds are generated from the golf game, Madrid also hopes that a good portion of the funds generated will be from the sale of hole sponsorships.  All sponsors will be rewarded with a commemorative gift to recognize their generosity.

All donations received will receive mention at the registration and raffle tables throughout the day, as well as during the awards and prize ceremony.

Thank you in advance for your help and assistance. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
