Great Day of Golf to Support the Mission

2019 Golf Legacy Wealth Foursome

The Brockers, one of two foursomes from Diamond Sponsor, Legacy Wealth, LLC

Thanks to the vision and footwork of longtime Development Committee member, Perry Ford, 25 foursomes checked in to the fourth annual RIS Charity Golf Challenge on August 20. Golfers of all ages and skill levels played a scramble format at the beautiful Edinburgh USA Golf Course, in Brooklyn Park, MN. Following early morning storms, teams competed under the sun. Play flowed smoothly and all felt challenged as they played eighteen holes on a course designed by Robert Trent Jones III.

After golf, silent auction bidding was fierce for rounds of golf at various local courses. D’Amico catered delicious lunch and dinner. Tom Boardman, RIS Development Committee Chair, guided our teams throughout the day and hosted the awards ceremony. We thank our diamond sponsor, Legacy Wealth, platinum sponsor Great Clips, and hole sponsors for your generous support of Rein in Sarcoma’s mission. Thanks to all the teams and sponsors, over $28,000 was raised to fund the RIS mission! We look forward to having you play with the Rein in Sarcoma community next year. We are stronger together!

Wonderful Evening for Party in the Park

What a great evening of stories, music, conversation, learning, games, fun and inspiration. The 2019 Party in the Park was an opportunity for the Rein in Sarcoma community to come together to advance the mission to raise sarcoma awareness, provide patient and family support, and support sarcoma research. Thanks to everyone who attended, volunteered, and contributed to the event’s success!

2019 Sarcoma Family Picnic

Sarcoma Family Picnic

The festivities kicked off with the annual Sarcoma Family Picnic, sponsored by the University of Minnesota, and supported through a substantial in-kind-gift from D'Amico Catering. New connections were formed among a community joined together by personal connection to sarcoma. As the picnic closed, the "Dirty Shorts Brass Band" entertained the crowd and led them up the hill to the Cafesjian Carousel for the Tribute ride.
