Our beautiful Sunol Valley Golf Club is hosting
the annual Frank Ivaldi Golf Tournament on May 24. This popular
tournament is the primary fundraiser for "The Hundred Club".
Started in Detroit, Michigan in 1950, a private citizen wanted
to do something for the pregnant wife of a slain young police
officer. So he wrote to 100 friends asking for donations and
in 1952 the first "Hundred Club" was incorporated.
Their mission statement states, "
purpose if the Hundred Club is to help provide for the widows,
widowers and dependents of police offices and firefighters who
lose their lives in the line of duty." Martin C. Kaufman
formed the local Alameda County 100 Club in 1974 in an effort
to raise funds for the family of 2 police officers who were
killed at an Oakland Junior High School. Now there are more
than 100 active clubs in the United States.
For more information or if you are interested
in entering the golf tournament please contact Bryan Richardson,
Sunol Golf Club's General Manager at 925-862-2404.

requests for an address to which well wishers could send cards
and letters. Fellow SOS members and dear friends of Pat's, Diane

to help deliver meals to Pat and her family. If you are interested
in delivering food to the family please contact me at the email
