Lake Murray-Irmo Rotary Club is pleased to announce the upcoming Golf “CART” outing on the 19th of April 2016. This golf outing will start at noon. The purpose of the event is to earn money to support Alzheimer’s disease research.

The specific program we will support is South Carolina’s own Rotary Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust (CART). The CART Fund is dedicated to raising funds to provide “seed” money for cutting edge, high impact research in hopes of finding a cure/prevention for Alzheimer’s disease. CART was started by the Sumter SC Rotary Club in 1996. Today, it is common to find a blue CART bucket for loose change on tables at many Rotary functions at clubs throughout the southeast. Since its inception, over $5.2 million has been collected. Twenty-nine grants have been given since 1999. Grant recommendations to the 501c3 CART Fund Board of Directors are through a Grants Advisory Team make up of medical researchers from prestigious universities. The bylaws of the CART require that 100% of the donations go into the research efforts. The CART Fund’s nonprofit tax ID is 31-1466051.

At a recent Rotary meeting, one of our members suggested we dedicate our annual golf outing to this effort. After unanimous board approval, we set out to create the best captain’s choice golf event in the midlands. The event will be at the Member’s Club at Woodcreek. We can support up to 36 teams at $400 per team. In addition, we are seeking an exclusive platinum tournament sponsor for a donation of $2500. The tournament also has gold ($1500), silver ($750), and bronze ($450) levels of sponsorship. Advertising opportunities and other benefits change by sponsorship level. Details on these levels and other funding opportunities can be found on the attached trifold brochure. The brochure also can be used to sign up teams or for sponsorship requests.

This is an important effort. Recently we asked the members of LMI Rotary how many had family or friends touched by Alzheimers. The response was 100%. This is a troubling statistic and it causes this effort to be very personal for those involved. Every dollar spent to find a cure is potentially the most important dollar spent to date.

Details on CART can be found at www.cartfund.org. The LMI Rotary contact for sponsorship is Blount Shepard. His cell phone is 803-600-4194 and his email is bshep@sc.rr.com. We sincerely thank you for your consideration of this charity event. We know you have many competing requests and hope you’ll see the benefit of this effort.
