The final event of this evenings activities was to recognize the primary beneficiary of our 2018 charity golf outing, the Drew's Hope Foundation and its founders Katie and Tony Ferrandino.
Drew’s Hope Research Foundation a 501(c)(3) corporation, was established in honor of Drew Ferrandino by his parents, Katie and Tony, to support research into treatments and cures for Batten Disease, a rare degenerative neurological disease for which there is no cure and is always fatal and for which there is virtually no public funding; with most victims succumbing by the age to 12 … Drew’s age when he passed away.
The Club was honored to be able to present a check for $12,000 to the Drew's Hope Foundation …

and hope that it can play a small part in helping to discover a cure for this horrible disease.
