eToile: Mrs. Patricia Meunier-Lebouc, good day. Last year you organized the first edition of the "French Week Golf Cup" as part of the 4th edition of French Week Miami, an initiative created and organized by the French-American Chamber of Commerce (FACC). How was the realization of the event and what did you learn from it?
Patricia Meunier-Lebouc- We had a beautiful experience in 2011 thanks to the first edition of the «French Week Golf Cup.» The 2011 edition has inspired us to continue and renovate the experience.
The second edition will take place to benefit "Bella’s Angels" foundation. Creating an event for the purpose of aiding a cause and the infants it represents is a magical experience that provides an incomporable satisfaction.
If you are a golfer, come support this beautiful cause and participate in the Golf Cup that will take place this upcoming November 18th. For this purpose, register online on the foundation’s website: www.bellasangels.org
eToile: May you desrcibe the second edition of this competition?
Patricia Meunier-Lebouc- The format will be the same as last year. The competitors will play in pairs. This format of friendly competition allows golfers of all levels to participate!
eToile: Why did you choose to partner with the organization "Bella’s Angels" for the second edition of the Golf Cup?
Patricia Meunier-Lebouc- Last year, part of the profits of the tournament already went to «Bella’s Angels.»
This year 100% of the proceeds will benefit the organization!
This is why the tournament now also displays the name of the organization. «It’s all about the kids!»
eToile: Could you please give us more details about the objective of this organization?
Patricia Meunier-Lebouc- CHARGE syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects Bella and her friends.
The syndrome encompasses a group of abnormalities (cardiac abnormalities , developmental retardation, ear and eye abnormalities...).
The treatment for this syndrome requires the support of the multiplicity of these symptoms.
Today, Bella has already experienced her 18th surgical intervention in which she received an ear implant. She has just turned 11 years old.
The objective of this organization is to ensure, as much as possible, the weight of the financial obligations (treatments, operations, medical visits, travel expenses) that add to the daily challenges. These families already have so much to manage...
Once again, we are proud to be able to participate in this effort!
eToile: Patricia, you are an experienced professional golf player. Could you reassure us? Players of all levels can register?
Patricia Meunier-Lebouc- Yes, as I previously mentioned, the format allows for all golf players to participate.
The purpose is to have a good time, participate in a friendly competition and get together afterwards for a cocktail and prizes to celebrate the winners while helping a good cause, Bella’s Angels!
