To all of you who have supported, volunteered, donated, and played in the TJ Memorial Golf Tournament these last 5 years, we first want to deeply thank you for your contributions to our most cherished event.
What we are about to announce was a very difficult decision for us to come to. However, we feel the time has come for us to discontinue our remarkable golf tournament, for many reasons.
Since the pandemic it has been difficult to predict if the arrangements, traditions and the format of our golf tournament can remain the same as in past years.
We have always taken pride in the format of our tournament. It has always been a meaningful and joyful social event. A time to socialize with one another and spend time catching up with friends. Not to mention a great morning of golf, prizes, and loads of fun! Followed up with an abundant luncheon, and where we shared our agenda about our goals for the TJ Memorial Fund, along with introducing our up-and-coming nurses.
However, we have been told that continuing with our traditions will be very unlikely. For this reason alone, we feel we cannot create, or give to all of you a valued, enjoyable, and fun filled tournament. These are the things we hold dear when creating the TJ Memorial Golf tournament.
In a very short 5 years, thanks to all of you, we have been able to grow the scholarship for the TJ Myrick Memorial Endowment at Regis University Loretto Heights School of Nursing. We are proud to say the endowment will continue funding two scholarships, (1 for a junior and 1 for a senior) for generations to come.
We will also continue to fund the endowment with additional funding through matching fund programs we have established with corporate sponsors.
We have been so fortunate to see 5 wonderful nurses graduate from one of the finest nursing programs in the country, and we look forward to the graduation of so many more.
We would also like to send a special and most appreciative thank you to our board members who gave of their own time to help organize this very special event:
Darrell & Leah Bragdon, Bob Dallas, Scot Nelson, Tina Trujillo, Jennie Jones, Debi Portararo, Dayna Brienza, and Ray de rosier. Also, many thanks to Joe Carlton and Legacy Ridge Golf course for the great support they have given us over the last 5 years.
In closing, we want to say we could not have done any of this without the help of everyone that has been a part of this short but fulfilling journey.
We will continue to grow the legacy of our son, TJ, through the nursing program at Regis University. We cannot express how proud we are to be a part of something that brings us so much joy and can be so meaningful to the Colorado community.
With our deepest gratitude and love, Steve and Pam Myrick
The 2020 TJ Memorial Golf Tournament
We hope this notice finds you safe and in good health. First of all, thank you for the support you have given us over the past few years; it has been greatly appreciated. It is your generosity that keeps our charity up and going. Without your kindness, we could not continue to provide these scholarships to the students who have the calling to be those amazing and dedicated nurses. Nurses, who right now are jeopardizing their lives to save ours. So again, we thank you.
After much consideration, due to all the uncertainty over the Covid - 19 virus, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 TJ Myrick Memorial Golf Tournament. The coronavirus has caused an economic impact that has made it extremely challenging and difficult to organize our tournament, and for us to reach out to our sponsors and participants at this very troublesome financial time. We know that if it’s challenging and difficult for us, it must be for you as well. Therefore, we do not wish to add additional stress to our friends, families, and supporters. You all have been so kind and generous with your donations.
