Sam Memorial Golf Outing to benefit MCW pediatric cancer research
June 11, 2014 College News - The 13th annual Sam Memorial Golf Outing is scheduled for Saturday, June 21, at the Scenic View Country Club, 4415 Club Drive, Slinger. This tournament is held in memory of Sam Beres, who lost his battle with leukemia in April 2000, at the age of six. Funds raised through this event benefit hematologic oncology research in the laboratory of Dr. David A. Margolis at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
The fund’s name -- the Sam Memorial “HOOT” Fund – reflects its goal to turn Hematologic Oncology Treatment (HOT) units into “Happily Out Of Tenants” (HOOT) units.
Since 2000, Sam’s family and friends have donated more than $250,000 to the Sam Memorial “HOOT” Fund.
The cost for the event is $85 per golfer, which includes green fees/cart, a tee shirt, a dinner and awards program and prizes. A registration form, which is due June 13, is available on the Sam Memorial Golf Outing website.
