Sam Memorial Golf Outing to benefit MCW cancer research
May 22, 2013 College News - The 12th annual Sam Memorial Golf Outing is scheduled for Saturday, June 22, at the Scenic View Country Club, 4415 Club Drive in Slinger. This tournament is held in memory of Sam Beres, who lost his battle with leukemia in April 2000, at the age of six. Funds raised through this event benefit hematologic oncology research conducted in the laboratory of David A. Margolis, MD, Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology and Oncology).
The fund’s name -- the Sam Memorial “HOOT” Fund – reflects its goal to turn Hematologic Oncology Treatment (HOT) units into “Happily Out Of Tenants” (HOOT) units.
Since 2000, Sam’s family and friends have donated more than $250,000 to the Sam Memorial “HOOT” Fund.
The cost for the event is $85 per golfer, which includes greens fees/cart, a tee shirt, dinner, and awards program and prizes.
