All proceeds from the tournament, hosted by Liam’s Lighthouse Foundation, helps to further cutting-edge medical research and find a cure for HLH.
HLH is a life-threatening immunodeficiency that often go misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed as initial symptoms may mimic other problems such as common infections. Symptoms may include persistent fevers, rashes, enlarged spleen, liver and/or lymph nodes, etc.
“Ten years ago we lost Liam to this horrible disease. HLH took my baby boy from the most beautiful blonde haired, blue-eyed, happy and active child, to a one that was unrecognizable and could not move on his own due to treatment. This horrible disease took everything from him and us,” said Michelle Schulze, president and founder of Liam’s Lighthouse Foundation. “We continue to celebrate my precious son Liam via the work of the foundation and at events like this year’s memorial golf tournament. The support from the community for the golf tournament and the foundation in general has been overwhelming and we are so grateful for everyone’s help in continuing Liam’s fight to make a difference.”
Advanced registration for the Liam Schulze 11th Annual Memorial Golf Tournament is encouraged due to ticket demand. Event attendees will receive dinner, goodie bags, t-shirts, as well as other prizes as part of a raffle with prizes from local businesses. Anyone interested in participating, but not golfing, can attend the post-tournament dinner.
