On April 29th, a group of Primavera gurus gathered at Trump National Golf Club to support two great causes; Cure NF with Jack and Yellow Ribbons United.
Cure NF with Jack is a nonprofit corporation founded by Jake Burke and Beth O’Brien-Burke, whose mission is to find an effective treatment or cure for individuals battling neurofibromatosis (“NF”) through the funding of research. The inspiration and motivation behind CNFWJ is their son Jack Burke, a dynamic, inspiring boy who lives with NF. Neurofibromatosis is a genetic mutation that causes benign tumors to grow on the nervous system. This can occur spontaneously or be passed down from a parent. I got to meet Jack and have a brief conversation with him and his mom, Beth. He was having such a great time and enjoyed the entire day.
Yellow Ribbons United is focused on bridging the gap between military service and civilian life by encouraging Americans to express their appreciation for military families through civic and social action and supports Children of our Veterans.
There was a mix of players and volunteers from IntegrateIT to help with the various events set up throughout the course. One of the favorites was a shot of Jack for Jack and closest putt. Players could also try to get a hole in one for a free 2 year lease on a brand new Lexus and hang out with a Raven’s cheerleader.
There was delicious food and plenty of drinks! Through the silent auction and raffle tickets, the organizations were able to raise over $10,000.00.
