We'll See You on the Links! Date for 2013 Golf Tournament Announced.

Members of the Golf Tournament Committee, made up of members of the Greater Bay 7-Eleven Franchise Owners Association (GBFOA) and The Hume Center, met to start preparing for the 2013 Annual Charity Golf Tournament. This tournament is hosted by GBFOA to support The Hume Center. GBFOA has dedicated their Annual Charity Golf Tournament to supporting The Hume Center since 2008.

The Golf Committee had some exciting announcements for this year's tournament. First of all, the date was set for Friday, June 14, 2013. Usually the tournament has been held on a Monday but was switched to a Friday to take place the day after GBFOA's Trade Show. People participating in both events will be offered a free hotel stay by GBFOA at a local hotel!

Second, new contests have been added to the Golf Tournament. One lucky person will get the chance to tee off to try to win One Million Dollars by hitting a Hole in One! Also, EVERY player in the tournament will have the chance to win Fifteen Thousand Dollars by hitting a Hole in One on Hole 15! In additionn to these extraordinary prizes, every golfer will try to win other great prizes on the four other Par 3 Holes for a Hole in One!

The Annual Golf Tournament is called "Golf for a Healthy Lifestyle" because the GBFOA Golf Committee wanted to reinforce that physical and social activities like golf can help improve physical and mental health. One aspect of the tournament that makes it so exciting to participate in as a player or as a guest at the dinner is the energy and generosity of the vendors that participate in the tournament as well. The vendors, who represent the majority of the companies that sell products in 7-Eleven stores and those companies that provide support and business tools to each store, generally bring a great variety of their products to sample and enjoy.

Another exciting aspect of the tournament is that the money raised for The Hume Center supports its Training Department. This support has enabled us to expand the number of doctoral-level trainees we supervise each year. Our thirteen licensed psychologists are now able to train over forty trainees each year, which allows us to directly serve over fifteen hundred people annually. The direct impact of your support is multiplied exponentially, as each trainee will take the passion for community mental health and the prevention of psychology suffering that they learn here with them into their careers.

So plan to join us for the tournament, either as a golf tournament player or as a guest at the dinner. Please click on the link below to learn more about the tournament and to register to attend.
