Since the health and well-being of the CF Community is the CF Foundation’s top priority, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our upcoming 65 Roses Golf Tournament, originally scheduled for Monday, August 10th at Lancaster Country Club.
We would like to thank our sponsors, Enterprise Holdings Foundation, Pillar Real Estate Investors, Gelia and Parkview Health Services for their continued and dedicated support, especially during these difficult times. These sponsors have committed to collectively donate $22,000 and they are challenging others to join them in also making a 100% tax deductible donation to the CF Foundation. We invite you to join this Western New York golf community challenge by donating today. Your donation will be used to ensure the CF Foundation can continue to stay on track with our mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.
Our decision to cancel the tournament was not made lightly. Our dedicated 65 Roses Golf Tournament committee worked diligently to explore all viable options before arriving at this conclusion. In the end we felt unable to hold the tournament safely while also allowing for a sense of camaraderie and togetherness that incorporated social distancing and followed our necessary safety protocols. Furthermore, with the pandemic continuing to evolve, as well as the restrictions on in-person gatherings being subject to change, we felt that there were too many uncertainties to move forward with this in-person gathering in a responsible manner.
Donations can be made online, by calling 716-204-2535, or by mailing a check, made out to the CF Foundation, to our local office address.
Thank you in advance for your support and understanding. Should you have any comments or questions, or need more information about cystic fibrosis or our programs, please contact Kelly Tronolone at (716) 204-2535 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are stronger together!
P.S. please save the date for the 2021 65 Roses Golf Tournament, scheduled for Monday, August 23, 2021 at Lancaster Country Club!
