2021: Regaining Our Footing, We're Hitting The Ground Running!
Is there anyone of us that isn't totally happy that 2020 is in the past...and well on the way to becoming a sad, fading memory?
I'm sensing some nods, perhaps a few smiles...and yes, was that an "Amen!" I heard from the back of the room?
So, while 2020 was difficult and demanding, it also provided a stern test of will and forbearance. Having experienced it, we can take some measure of satisfaction not only to have endured, but gained something of value from the experience. And now we can set our sights on the prospects of better times ahead.
Much of that reflects the experience of the Taco Bell Charity Golf Classic. Last year was very challenging, but at a time when many had to take to the sidelines, you, our event friends/loyal supporters, enable us to carry on when it seemed most unlikely. Last year's was a smaller event to be sure, but while most were on the sidelines, you kept us in the game.
So, with the goal of "building back better", the Cleveland Taco Bell Operators Association and Cleveland Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Ohio are pleased to invite you to the 2021 Taco Bell Charity Golf Classic.
The work of the Boys & Girls Club remains as important today as at any time in its history. Among the many impacts of C-19, prominently included was the disruption of services focused on aiding at risk young people. Sadly, when the need was greatest, the club was handicapped by a reduction of access and funding resources to continue their critical work.
Now, as society reopens, the need for those services remains at the highest level. We know what the job of the club is in this environment -- help kids with few other places to turn, find the paths that can lead to productive lives. Our job is to help them continue and advance their work serving the young people of the community
COVID-19 compelled us to make some changes in presenting the event. Although forced by circumstances, the response was very positive to many of the adjustments. So, the best 'changes' will be preserved. COVID is in the rearview mirror, but not entirely invisible on the horizon, as such Safety First, Safety Always will continue to govern all aspects of our event. We will offer morning and mid-day tee times and continue practices to limit overall group sizes and gatherings.
So, in the fullest sense, we're back! Let’s come together as we often have in years past and build back what we’ve all contributed to making special.
The 2021 Taco Bell Charity Golf Classic. We're looking forward to seeing EVERYONE there!
