The Michael Thompson Third Annual Memorial Golf Tournament and Dinner
Michael Thompson embodied the concept of "Think Global and Act Local". His care and compassion for others was continuously demonstrated by his service to local organizations that supported children, young adults and families.
The goal of this tournament is to raise funds to support the children of families that are experiencing difficult circumstances similar to those Mike and his family endured.
The vision of the organizers is that families with young children that have endured a tragedy affecting a parent would be touched by the generosity of others in honor of Michael, a man who was always committed to the well being of others. The recipients will be a families enduring cancer or other tragic illness or families who lost a parent in the line of serving others such as military, police, fire or other servant heroes.
This year the proceeds will be divided between the education fund established for Michael's four young children and the family of Dr. Emily Thomas. Like Michael, Emily was the parent of young children when diagnosed with terminal cancer. Like Michael, she served others while striving to maintain a work/family balance and was actively involved in the Cancer Community of Walnut Creek. Her four year fight against Stage IV metastatic breast cancer ended in April of this year and we are proud to honor her at our event.
Whether as a participant in the events, a volunteer on one of our several event committees or as a sponsor, we look forward to and appreciate greatly your support for this worthy cause.
