And then…there was one. Who wants it?

I am very pleased to report that we have only ONE foursome remaining in the WNST Charity Golf Outing presented in honor of Erinn McCarthy on May 24th at Mountain Branch.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever played in our annual event before (if you have, THANKS!) but I can promise you that this year’s tournament at Mountain Branch will be one of the most memorable days of your life, let alone one of the best golfing days you’ve ever had.

It’s rare when a story that’s not directly associated with you or your family can impact you in a way that makes you try to live YOUR life better – and provide for better lives for the people you’re close to – but I can guarantee that’s how you’ll feel after May 24.

Our “Eagle has Landed”, I’m happy to say.  The bronze Eagle statue/sculpture we ordered through the monies raised for “Eagles For Erinn” has safely arrived at the WNST studios, all the way from Idaho.  A quick story about the Eagle sculpture…I went on-line to research where I could find one and came across and e-mailed Mike with information about the Erinn McCarthy story and our needs back east in Baltimore.  Mike replied by saying how touched he was by Erinn’s life and brave battle and was so impressed with the efforts of our WNST listeners that he gave us a $3,000 credit on the sculpture.  What should have cost us $7,500 was accepted by Mike for $4,400 (the amount we raised in Eagle’s For Erinn).

We have SRIXON golf hats and golf balls for everyone on May 24th.  We have a great golf course at Mountain Branch that will serve as a wonderful host for us.  We have so many “free things” to give-away and auction off…like free golf at Crofton Country Club, free passes to the McDonald’s LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock, a “day with the Ravens” during training camp and much, much more.  And we have beautiful pink bracelets that read “Do it for Erinn” to sell as well on the 24th.  All of the proceeds from this year’s event will go to Erinn’s school – Maryvale Prep in Lutherville – which did such an outstanding job helping Erinn throughout her illness and continues with their fine tradition of educating and raising outstanding young women.

The tent at Mountain Branch only holds 150 people.  I have a weird feeling we might want to keep the Fire Marshal away from the golf course on May 24.

If you want that last foursome, contact me at and it’s all yours.
