Win the trip of a lifetime and support MCW digestive disease research
July 17, 2012 College News - The annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament to benefit the Medical College of Wisconsin Digestive Disease Center (DDC) is Monday, Aug. 27, at The Wisconsin Club. The event includes a raffle for one of four prizes.
Raffle tickets are $25 each or five for $100. Ticket holders do not have to be present or attend the tournament to win.
The tournament features Ladies Professional Golf Association players who will team up with 128 community leaders to raise funds for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis research at the DDC. More than 1.4 million Americans are afflicted with these two diseases, which are collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease. The money raised will help to improve their quality of life and help researchers work toward a cure.
Russ Darrow, Chairman and CEO of the Russ Darrow Group, Inc., is honorary chair of the event.
Last year’s event raised more than $180,000 that went toward seed grants for local research projects on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. These modest grants can spur a seven-fold return in federal funding for promising projects once they’re underway.
Prizes in the raffle include winner’s choice of a trip for two to the 2013 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, a Chicago Black Hawks Suite for a game during the 2012/13 season, a trip for two to the Kentucky Oaks and Derby in Louisville, Kentucky, or a trip for two to the 2013 MLB All-Star Game and Home Run Derby.
