The Highland Country Club will be hosting the 4th Annual Putting for Parkinson's Golf Outing on July 19, 2013. The golf outing is much more than a fun day on the golf course. It is a way to give back o the community, and also donate money to an important cause. According to the event's registration site, "Our goal is to increase public awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and to raise money to help fund medical research grant requests through the University of Cincinnati's Gardner Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders."
The event organizer, Scott Layman, personally understands the importance of helping to fund Parkinson's research. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease at the age of 43, and has since combined his love for golf with the opportunity to support Parkinson's research.
The Putting for Parkinson's Golf Outing has raised an impressive $52,000 during their previous golf outings. All of the money raised is donated to the Gardner Family Center for Parkinson's Disease at the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute (UCNI). One of the great aspects of this event is that not only does it raise money for an important cause, but all the money is then donated locally.
For the event, there are many different ways for people to participate. Individuals and/or companies can participate in the golf outing, become a sponsor, donate items to the raffle and auction, or make a donation. You don't have to be a fan of hitting the links to support the cause.
Those planning to tee off for the event have seven registration options to choose from for the event. If you are unable to participate in the golf outing during the day, you have the opportunity to register for only the dinner portion of the event. Participants have been provided with a schedule for the day:
10:30am: Lunch Served from City BBQ
11:00am: Shotgun Start
