8th Annual Carolyn Czerkies Memorial Golf Outing

In 2000, our mother, Carolyn Czerkies, passed away from complications brought on by multiple myeloma. In 2008, my brothers, David and Scott, and I decided to organize our first IMF fundraiser as a tribute to our mom and to benefit the efforts of the International Myeloma Foundation.

Over the past
seven years, with the generous donations from all the participants, sponsors, and volunteers, our event has raised over $190,000. In fact, last year's event (144 golfers), was one of the nation's largest charity golf outings to benefit the IMF.

Our event
has been featured in the "Making Miracles" newsletter and the IMF's 2008 and 2009 Annual Reports. We are also proud to have been able to fund three Brian D. Novis Research Grants in our mom's name to Dr. Naoya Mimura of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (2011), Ulf Krause of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine (2012), and Brian White at Washington University in St. Louis (2014).

Please join us for this year's
8th Annual Carolyn Czerkies Memorial Golf Outing on Saturday, June 6th at Joliet Country Club and help support the IMF's effort to find a cure for this life-threatening disease.
