Carole Bain Ladies Day Memorial Golf Tournament The annual ladies golf tournament has become a signature fundraising and awareness-raising event for Foothills Alliance. “The golfers who participate in the Foothills Alliance Ladies Day Golf outing not only experience a wonderful day of golf, food and fellowship, they also understand and passionately support the cause for which they are playing,” said Jeanine Douglas, tournament steering committee member and participant. Carole Bain was a dedicated and generous volunteer for Foothills Alliance. For nine years Carole played in the Ladies Day Charity Golf Tournament, benefiting the clients of Foothills Alliance, and for seven of those years, Carole was in charge of the popular breakfast that took place prior to tee off. The vast array of delicious breakfast and brunch foods, plus a variety of sweet delicacies, became a famous and much-anticipated part of the golf tournament. During the 2009 golf tournament, Carole was undergoing a courageous battle with cancer. Even so, she insisted on chairing the breakfast once again. Carole worked very hard, as usual, while undergoing extensive, rigorous treatments. On tournament day, Carole was suffering, but she awoke at 5 a.m. to begin preparing for the breakfast. She smiled through her pain and rode around the golf course with her beloved team. When the tournament ended that day, the crowd gave Carole a standing ovation for the breakfast, though few people knew that she was sick. Just over three months later, on October 1, 2009, we said good-bye to Carole. It was a tremendous honor in 2010 for Foothills Alliance to name our annual golf tournament the Carole Bain Ladies Day Memorial Golf Tournament, a fitting remembrance for an avid golfer, a wonderful volunteer, and our special friend. The 2015 tournament is scheduled for June 12 at the Anderson Country Club. We're currently looking for teams, players, donors and volunteers!
