Remembering Robby – we will not rest until there is a cure.
Join us for the 4th Annual Robby Brisco Open to continue Robby’s fight against childhood cancer. Please join our team from vie for the kids in continuing Robby’s fight against childhood cancer.
Robby lost his 3 1/2 year battle with cancer in September 2015. Since then, other children from our area have lost their battles. Robby’s wish was that we continue his fight, the fight. It is children like Robby that motivate us and our family of volunteers to do what we can to stop something which should never happen.
You can give children hope by participating in our world-class day of golf – 180 golfers, on-course food and entertainment, music, dinner, auctions, raffles, and prizes – and lots of fun! If you don’t golf, you can join us at the dinner reception.
