Rainbow Int’l Restoration Fundraiser
Blythewood, SC. (WOLO) — They come from different walks of life, and varied circumstances, but have one connection they would prefer not to have. They are living with terminal Cancer.
Three young women ages 29 to 37 are the recipients of a golf tournament fundraiser being held Wednesday may 3rd at the Cobblestone Park Golf Club in Blythewood to help raise money to let these mothers, and wives live the remainder of their lives with a smile.
Rainbow International Restoration founder, Reed Mattingly says they started the fundraiser 7 years ago when a close family friend was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. In an effort to keep from feeling helpless, Mattingly decided to start the fundraiser to help families battling the disease find some solace in knowing that they are loved and not forgotten.
Each year there are three people chosen to get a monetary gift that Mattingly says can be spent in anyway they would like, as long as it is something that make them happy.
This year the three women chosen are fighting stage 4 cancer, and will never be able to recover from, but with the help of donations received during the charity golf Tournament, Mattingly hopes it will make the fight less burdensome .
Mattingly says ” They are managing their Cancer on a daily basis. There is no curing it. We can’t cure Cancer, but we can ease the burden a bit.”
If you would like to register or have questions on how you can make a difference in the lives of these brave families, contact Rainbow International Restoration at (803)781-5557.
The 7th annual Rainbow International Charity Golf Classic and Silent Auction begins 10AM Wednesday.
