|In 2011, the Meck South Rotary Club, under the leadership of one of our members, Steve Baune, adopted “Beds for Kids of Charlotte” as one of the main organizations for which we provide financial and volunteer support. Steve was the Chairman of the Board for Beds for Kids (https://bedsforkids.org/our-mission/), which allowed the Meck South Rotary Club to take an active role in the development and growth of the organization.|
Steve managed to incorporate the motto of Rotary: "Service Above Self", not only into his charity work but also into his weekend golf rounds. At TPC Piper Glen, it was customary to hear Steve walk onto the Driving Range on a Saturday or Sunday morning and shout out: "BMOFs Today!", which meant that he had put out a cooler of Ice, Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix and Tito's Vodka for everyone to enjoy on hole #5, where he lived (i.e. Bloody Marys On Five).
Our friend Steve passed away on August 14, 2014 after a 2 year battle with cancer. It is now up to his friends and his fellow Rotarians, to continue his work with Bed for Kids, while making sure that Steve’s BMOF legacy will live on forever. And what better way to honor our friend Steve aka "Baunzo" than a charity golf tournament with lots of BMOFs.
On behalf of Steve, we thank you for being a part of the world’s most ridiculously awesome golf tournament.
You will love it.
