“Eagle’s for Erinn” update and donation info

April 14, 2009 | Drew Forrester

Well…there were a lot of great shots hit at this year’s Masters.

For some of you, maybe too many!

A grand total of 34 (that’s not a typo) eagles were made in the 2009 Masters.  Here’s the link for those of you who want to see it for yourself.

Last week, I encouraged all of you to pledge money based on how many eagles were made during the four day tournament at Augusta.  We call it “Eagle’s for Erinn” and all the money raised goes right to Maryvale Prep and the Erinn McCarthy Scholarship fund to honor the memory of Erinn McCarthy, a 14-year old Maryvale student who passed away from cancer in March of 2007.

Most of you accepted my “challenge” and pledged $5.00 per-eagle, based mainly on the fact that I told you to expect somewhere between 10 and 15 eagles.  I never, ever thought there might be 34.  

So, as I said last week on the show, everyone is on the honor system.  Hey, I know times are tough out there.  I’m contemplating whether or not we’re going to be able to have our charity golf outing this year (May 21) because early registration is going at a snail’s pace.  I get it, believe me.  Everyone is watching what they spend.

If you pledged $5.00 per-eagle and you can afford $170, I’ll gladly send it along to Maryvale with our deepest appreciation.

However, if you can only afford $25 or $50, we’ll be more than happy to put that in with the rest of the money and put it to great use at Maryvale – also with our deepest gratitude.

You can use the link above to see if your favorite golfer made an eagle (or two) at The Masters.

Here’s the information you need to forward the money (check or money order, please):

Make the check payable to “Maryvale Prep” and in the memo, write “Erinn McCarthy Scholarship”.

Send it to:

I’ll get all the checks over to Maryvale and report back to everyone with a grand total in the next week or so.

I thank all of you for participating and the McCarthy family thanks you as well.
