Brendan Borek loved life, and life it seemed, loved Brendan. An avid surfer, gifted artist, and an agile soccer player, his teenage years mirrored life at its fullest.

Diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (cancer of the bone) at 16, he vied against death with courage and dignity until the disease claimed him in December 1991.

Because Brendan touched the
hearts of many, the Brendan Borek High Tides Memorial Fund, Inc. (Brendan’s Fund) was established in 1992 by his family and friends. Visit the About Us section to find out more.

9th Annual Golf Tournament for Brendan’s Fund

THE 9TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT FOR BRENDAN’S FUND was held on Friday May 2, 2014. This year we had 93 golfers try there luck on a demanding course. Our many thanks to our Co-Chairs Lisa Sylvester and Cherie Champion and also to Carol Blum-Barnoski, Matt Crowley and the entire staff of the Stone Harbor Golf Club that helped to make this a very special event.
Once again, we would like to thank Gentilini Motors of Woodbine who donated a Chevy Cruze for the “Hole In One Challenge”. No one won this year but maybe next year. We also had a new event for us called “Hit The Boat”. The trick was to chip a ball into a boat sitting in the lake and get a ball to stay in the boat. Jay Dilworth not only got one but two! During the Cocktail Hour we were treated to a Put-Off of 17 golfers. Jim Miller was the winner! Congratulations to the Chris Kelly foursome. The came in with a score of 63! To our “Most Honest” players the Mary Kate Garry group were our winners.
To all who participated, donated, sponsored or came for the dinner we are grateful. You have helped to make the lives of our families that much better and we thank you.
