The Fore Noah and Friends Charity Golf Tournament returns to the Longbow Golf Club for its 8th year with a new fundraising goal in mind: $65,000. Last year’s event brought in about $60,000, with all proceeds benefiting the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation. If organizers make this year’s goal, the event will have reached a milestone of $500,000 raised over eight years.
C3 Touch supports Fore Noah and Friends and the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation as a hole sponsor. The company also contributes with employee volunteers and golf participants.
The golf tournament was founded by Andy and Lara Nelson, the parents of neuroblastoma patient Noah Nelson, who has shown no sign of disease for more than six years now.
“Sadly, too many children, some here in the Phoenix area, haven’t fared so well,” the Nelsons wrote in their sponsor solicitation. “Unfortunately, pediatric cancer research has not received nearly as much funding as adult cancer research projects have. Therefore, the nearly $2 million of funding provided by CNCF to the research community is significant in advancing neuroblastoma studies and bringing more drugs and agents into clinical trials. More needs to be done.”
The tournament offers a full day of fun and activities for the whole family. Favorites such as the $20,000 hole-in-one contest and helicopter ball drop return this year along with a silent auction, kids’ 3-hole golf round and clinic, and a catered barbecue. Participants can buy raffle tickets for prizes valued up to $1,500, including a ride in the helicopter during the ball drop. The day will kick off with registration at 7 a.m. Family activities and the BBQ will begin around noon.
