Putting for Parkinson's, a one day golfing and auction fundraiser in Fort Thomas, KY, has traditionally been a community-based event to raise awareness for Parkinson's Disease and research money benefiting the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute toward a cure.  To date, we have raised (netted) almost $200,000 in eight years!  
In 2015, we decided to do something a little different.  "People Helping People" is a simple idea to donate 20% of the net proceeds from each golf outing to one or two deserving individuals suffering from Parkinsons.  They might need a special medical device, DBS surgery, a home handicap alteration or other piece of equipment, but might not be able to afford it.  Receiving no responses from the local Parkinson's community, we found The Melvin Weinstein Parkinson's Foundation, located in Virginia Beach, who fulfills this same mission but on a national level.  In one step, our fundraiser went from local to national!
One dollar is all that I ask and if you can share this with a friend or relative, I would greatly appreciate it.  Help us continue our mission to bring hope, relief, and eventually a cure to millions of people suffering from Parkinson's Disease by making a donation today.

Thank you,

Scott Layman
