“I am pleased to announce that the 32nd Annual ATU MS Research Funds Golf Tournament, will be held on September 17 – 18, 2017. This year’s tournament will be at the Worthington Manor Golf Club, 8329 Fingerboard Road, Urbana, Maryland 21704.
More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide and approximately 400,000 more are afflicted each year. To find the best research with the most promise, the National MS Society relies on more than 130 world-class scientists who volunteer their time to carefully evaluate hundreds of proposals each year, and we rely on you, to continue your support in helping us raise funds to assist in this research.
In honor of former Local 1227 President/Business Agent Jerry Long, who suffered from and lost his battle with this disease, we hope we can count on you to join us for a round of golf, good friends and great food, in support of this worthy cause.
If you’re unable to join us, please consider placing an ad in our program book, being a sponsor, or making a charitable contribution to the ATU Jerry Fund.
