The mission of Enduring Hearts is to fund important and innovative research to increase the longevity of pediatric heart transplants, and improve the quality of life for transplant recipients. The Erik Compton Foundation shares these goals in pursuit of longer lives for all heart transplant recipients, and increasing awareness of the importance of organ donation.
The event begins at 10:00 a.m. with a 4-hole PGA Tour pro shootout. This is a unique opportunity to walk four holes alongside PGA Tour pros inside the ropes, providing an up close experience with some of the game's best. Noon marks the shot gun start for the 18-hole tournament. Lunch, snacks, dinner, and cocktail reception will be provided to all players along with gift bags. A silent auction will be included in the evening program. Sponsorship and foursomes information can be found at www.enduringhearts.org/
In addition to Row6, Sionic Mobile is also sponsoring the event.
