Summer golf events score big for ataxia research

Two summer golf events benefiting the Bob Allison Ataxia Research Center (BAARC) raised more than $78,000 for ataxia research and care at the University of Minnesota. The 6th annual Karen’s Hope Ataxia Benefit, held June 18 at the Oak Marsh Golf Course in Oakdale, raised nearly $34,000. The event brought together 210 guests in support of the University’s ataxia efforts. The 10th annual and final Bob Allison Ataxia Golf Classic, held August 21 at the Owatonna Country Club in Owatonna, brought in more than $22,000 for BAARC. Longtime supporter Connie Bakken will again match the event’s proceeds through the Whitney Arcee Foundation. In its 10-year history, the Golf Classic has raised more than $250,000 to advance BAARC’s mission. Those who have attended the Bob Allison Ataxia Golf Classic are invited to continue showing their support for BAARC by attending next year’s Karen’s Hope Ataxia Benefit, which will be held in June 2008.
