7th Annual Golf and Dinner Charity Event

Golf sceneThe golf course was filled to capacity at noon as 144 golfers took to the links to revel in the perfect 80 degree climate and to the rolling sun-drenched countryside of the Rush Creek Golf Club. Golfers enjoyed unlimited driving range, on-course contests and prizes, hole-in-one challenges on all par 3’s, free donated on-course beverages & snacks, and even picture opportunities with the celebrated Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders. A great time was had by all!

Scotty Reed bandSpecial Live Entertainment performance by the Scotty Reed band entertained arriving guests as the Silent Auction kicked off. Golfers and Dinner guests converged on the terrace and then to the ballroom in the late afternoon to enjoy Scotty’s music, cocktails, appetizers and a loaded Silent Auction arrangement.

Pre Dinner table settingsThe Emerald city of Oz was at Center stage for the enchanting dinner affair, featuring a grand Yellow Brick Road, Dorothy, Toto and the full cast of colorful characters. Nearly 300 of our dearest friends and family stretching from all parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and as far away as San Diego, and fittingly, even Kansas came together within the majestic ballroom of the Rush Creek Golf Club to share in a magical evening of celebration of our dream for a cure, and of the life and enduring spirit of all those living with Rett syndrome.
