Team Connor Childhood Cancer Foundation, located in Dallas, has announced their annual the III Forks Golf Classic Auction & Dinner presented by Northwestern Mutual – Dallas raised a record $615,000 for the fight against childhood cancer.
“We had great community support which helped us surpass last year’s total amount raised,” said Joy Cruse, founder of TeamConnor. “As people learn more about the need for critical research, they are moved to help the kids battling this dreadful disease.”
More than 250 players came out to support the battle against childhood cancer at the golf tournament at the prestigious Gleneagles Country Club. Since 2008, TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Foundation has donated nearly $3 million to hospitals and research centers across the country including Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Dana Farber Cancer Institute; UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas; UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, University of Colorado Denver, and Children’s Health Dallas.
