Our fundraiser has gained a reputation as the premier golf event in Montgomery County and 2021 will be no different! OK, it will be a little different. But the on-course fun and our mission to raise funds for diabetes education and research continues. Held at beautiful Manor Country Club in Rockville, MD, the newly formatted event includes an 18-hole tournament, on-course contests and raffles, an elevated outdoor lunch and the best swag bag ever. Dinner and the auctions are on pause, but the day will conclude, as always with the (virtual) drawing of the $10,000 raffle ticket winner.
The COVID crisis another reminder that living with diabetes is a complicated and often requires more of those who are afflicted. In this instance, although diabetics are no likelier to get COVID-19 than the general population, they are far more likely to experience severe complications and death if they contract it. This makes us more committed than ever to raising funds that support diabetes prevention, treatment and research that will lead to a cure.
Safety of golfers, staff and volunteers will be top priorities at this year’s event and we are working closely with Manor Country Club to ensure a safe and fun event.
