BBC Cypress Course | April 2021

Our Story:

After their son’s 8 year journey with ALS, John and Nancy Frates purchased a condo in Bonita Bay. After joining the club, John went to the BB East course to golf as a single. He promptly was assigned to a cart with a BB Naples member Tom Lindberg. After quick introductions, they set out to the course. Before reaching the 1st tee these 2 members became instant family. You see they each shared that they had lost a child to disease in 2019. Since then Tom and Sue, Nancy and John have become great friends as they navigate their new reality. They share many similarities of this new normal but the one main avenue for healing is their commitment to helping others. The result is the formation of Friends of Peter Frates Family Foundation ( and the Lindberg’s Journey to Better Effort ( The Peter Frates and Nicole Lindberg Memorial Golf Tournament is the result of families’ efforts to assist those in need. All proceeds will go to the 2 organizations to help with their missions. Please go to the respective websites for more information on the organizations.
