Charity Golf Tournament Raises Awareness
A fundraiser was held Sunday at Webster Country Club, to help find the cause and cure for a rare neurological disorder.
Ataxia is a disease affecting more than 150,000 Americans affecting movement and balance. There is no known cure. The Rochester Ataxia Foundation held a golf tournament
charity event to advocate for research and provide support for individuals who suffer from the rare disorder.
"Today we would love to hit $50,000. It's the third year and we've got a record number of people coming. It's a new venue. It's a new golf course. We've really switched it up. We have a lot of exciting games out on the course to keep people engaged throughout the day and make it a fun activity," said Suzanne Coglitore, President of the Rochester Ataxia Foundation. "We really want to build the reputation. If people really come to support our cause, we're going to make sure it's a good time."
The event drew 260 guests and included a silent auction, live auction and golf tournament raffle.
