A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Golf Tournament – for Mailloux Masters 2018 Golf Tournament

 

Fifteen year old camper Jake Mailloux held his second Mailloux Masters Golf Tournament Fundraiser on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in memory of his father, Joe Mailloux.  At the event, Jake honored two important people – Wally Brown, his Big Buddy for the past four years. And then, his step dad Chris Petersen who taught and mentored Jake last year on how to plan and host a Golf Tournament. As you can imagine, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. This year, virtually all on his own, Jake created his website and planned the event! 

 

With 60 golfers, an opportunity to win a car with a hole-in-one on the first tee, and numerous silent auction items, Jake’s Mailloux Masters Golf Tournament will donate over $7,000 to CZC! We cannot thank Jake, Chris, and the entire Mailloux and Petersen families, friends, and all of the local community supporters enough! It is truly impressive to see Jake’s empathy, drive, and commitment to send kids to CZC to experience what he did, and to see so many people rally around and support him!  

 

As said on Jake’s Mailloux Masters website, “We hold this tournament every year because of the impact Comfort Zone has had on my life. Three years ago, I tragically lost my father to suicide. I was lost, but Comfort Zone helped me find my way. My goal is to help Comfort Zone provide the same opportunities to other kids and allow them to find their way.”  Initially, he thought, “What better way than to play the sport my Dad loved so much, GOLF!” This year, Jake not only planned the event, but he also played as one of the foursomes!

 

"You may think that this is just another charity event or a reason to give back, but for me this is much more. You are helping children like me to survive...not by hiding or being embarrassed or trying to forget their loved one...but by remembering them, and being proud of who they were and who we are. I want you to know that all the children at these camps can never thank you enough. Because of the support you give us, we now have our own personal Comfort Zone!” ~ Jake Mailloux at last year’s annual Gala

 

 

At the end of the night, Jake calculated how many kids his event will send to camp – a magnificent TWELVE! Thank you Jake, their grief journey will take on a new or different course because of you!
