Kali’s Cure Third Annual Golf Outing and Charity Auction

Dunmaglas Golf Club, Charlevoix, Michigan

On July 31st, Kali’s Cure will host its third annual golf outing and charity auction at Dunmaglas Golf Club in Charlevoix, Michigan.  With stunning views of Lake Michigan and awe inspiring terrain, this four player scramble offers golfers the opportunity to experience Northern Michigan’s Masterpiece while having fun supporting a great cause!  Each team includes cart and green fees, a hospitality gift, dinner and awards.  Part of the proceeds from the day’s events will support our soldiers who have suffered spinal cord injuries while serving our country.  The remainder of the proceeds will be used to spread the word about paralysis and support research and rehabilitation leading to a cure.

After suffering a paralyzing diving accident in 2006, Michigan native, Kali Pung, founded Kali’s Cure for Paralysis Foundation.  Pung has been fortunate to receive great care and support of family and friends but, after seeing the best and worst that medicine has to offer, she realized that not everyone has the same opportunities.  Kali has made it her goal, through Kali’s Cure, to help find a cure for paralysis and to better the lives of those living with spinal cord injuries (SCI).  Although she remains paralyzed from the neck down, she has seen advancements that far surpass anything doctors thought possible and believes that it’s only a matter of time before there is a cure.

Kali’s Cure prides itself on seeking the best places to support, including world renowned spinal cord hospitals, diaphragmatic pacing programs, and foundations that promote intense physical rehabilitation.  The foundation is uniquely positioned to use personal experience to find the best programs, spanning the entire country from Grand Rapids to Denver to Cleveland and beyond.  Kali’s Cure strongly believes that every dollar raised should go directly to the cause and, therefore, over 97% of all money raised is used to fund research and rehabilitation.  For more information about Kali’s Cure and the causes they support as well as details regarding the upcoming golf and charity weekend, please visit www.kaliscure.org.

The event is not limited to golfers.  The evening will conclude with verbal and silent auctions, dinner, cocktails, guest speakers and, most importantly, fun!!!  To register your team and sign up for any part of the festivities, visit www.kaliscure.org or email kali@kaliscure.org.
