"There is no denying that October 27th, 2008 was a most special day! We were able to contribute $170,000 to the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance as well as increasing awareness of the disease. East Team member James Foley began his downswing with his Titleist 7 iron, lifted and guided his little round white ball 175 yards, watched it hit high on the bank finally dropping in the center of the cup making him an instant millionaire! Within hour, James celebrity spread as the story was broadcast on all major networks including the Golf Channel. Tens of thousands, heck, hundreds of thousands of people now knew of the WE Cup and a little bit more about Friedreich's Ataxia. Thanks for your involvement with all I do!"

The players LOVED that!!"
