Testimonials: Golf-4-Life 2019

In September 2019, I attended the PSA sponsored Golf-4-Life event, which gave me the confidence and motivation to continue aiming high in my recovery and it has paid off.  I am driving (a car) again and working full time, all thanks to the help of my clinical care givers, my family and friends, and the PSA!”                                                                                            —Cindy

Prior to Golf -4- Life, my golf experience involved windmills, dragons and castles with drawbridges. Not only did it give me a chance to learn something new and challenge myself,
Golf-4-Life was also a place where I was able to meet other stroke survivors, reunite with survivor friends outside the confines of support groups.  This event has become something I look forward to every year. ”                                                                                                        —Bernadette

My experience with the Golf-4-Life/Los Lagos Golf Course was it made me feel happy and strong, I went home feeling capable.“😁                                                                                 — Cyndi

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the golf event given that I last played golf 10 years ago; at that time I played golf right handed vs left handed!”                                                        Marshall

“Before my experience with the Golf-4-Life event, it was over 20 years since I picked up a club. It was amazing to work with golf pros that taught me I could drive a golf ball 150 yards with one arm – never thought I could until I drove it down the fairway…I’m very grateful for events like this one.”                                                                                                                                   —Emmanuel

IRA Charitable Distribution – A Great Way to Give to PSA 

Whether or not you will be itemizing deductions this year, you can realize important benefits by making your charitable gifts from your IRA. Anyone 70 ½ or older may donate up to $100,000 per year to qualified charitable organizations and count the contributions towards their required minimum distribution. Gifts made directly from an IRA to a qualified charity will not be included in your adjusted gross income, which may keep you in a lower tax bracket.

PSA is a 501(c)(3) organization. Tax ID #: 77-0500631.

In memory and in honor

Donate in honor or in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special occasion or milestone such as a birthday or anniversary. We’ll send a special acknowledgement card to someone you wish to honor or to the family of a loved one who has passed away.

Payroll deduction & matching gifts

Many companies offer giving options for their employees, and some of them even match your contribution! Please contact your Human Resources Department to discover what programs your employer offers and how you might make an even greater impact with your gift.
