Last year you may remember the ForeBatten charity auction in Phoenix which had a plethora of rounds of golf at wonderful courses around the country.  It was put on by the Kahn family who unfortunately have 2 girls affected by this terrible Juvenile Batten disease, which I had never heard of myself.  It is the type of disease you wished didn't even exist, let alone having your young children affected by this fatal malady affecting children ages 5-10.


The good news is that last year's event raised over $600k for their foundation they founded and are doing it again in 2019! The generosity of others constantly looking for ways to give back and pay it forward are heartwarming, especially since we are in the Christmas season. I won a couple of rounds last year via the auction and presently they are looking for donations to put up for auction.  We have big hearts here and will be putting up a round at Olympia Fields CC myself, while bidding on some others I'm sure.


I just received the announcement email thus the more awareness the better.  You can donate, attend or bid and to see the photos of these young girls just saddens you thinking of what lies ahead for them.

God bless.

Ha..... well it's for charity right?

What are you going after?  I may look to team up with somebody as my dad/bro won't make all the rounds I may get.  PM if needed.
