Bob’s up and running with his April tournament

It’s that time of year again. That time where Dad starts running around like a chicken with his head cut off getting ready for the annual golf tournament in their “active adult community” (that’s far more active than me!).

The Fourth Annual Golf for the Cure for Parkinson’s Disease will be Saturday, April 6, 2013 at Lake Ashton in Winter Haven, Florida. It’s a family event — and not just related family; all of Mom and Dad’s friends are there helping out and playing golf.

And in past years Emily and I have driven the beer cart as golfers hit the course before lunch and a raffle. Last year, we blew past our $35,000 goal and raised $42,543, which was matched by an additional $18,268 from the Brin-Wojciki challenge through the Michael J. Fox Foundation. This year, we’re setting the bar at $45,000.

Want to be a sponsor this year? You can donate any amount of money, but sponsorship levels range from $250 to sponsor a hole (that’ll have a sign with your name on it), to the platinum sponsor of $5,000. Learn more about the tournament here, and contact Bob for sponsorship information.

If you don’t want to be a sponsor but you’d like to donate anyway, Dad’s Team Fox page is working now.

And if you’d like to help out, let us know. We could always use more help (especially me that early in the morning).

Here’s to our $45,000 goal this year, and our overall family goal of finding a cure for Parkinson’s in 2013.
