1st Annual Golf Tournament for Down Syndrome

Benefitting the Changing Minds Foundation

One of our CMF parents, David Moehlman, has put together a fundraising golf tournament to benefit Changing Minds Foundation. We are currently registering teams of 4 for $500. The event will include lunch and dinner, awards & prizes, as well as a silent auction. We need everyone's help to make this event a success.
So many of you may be thinking....

I don't play golf.
I don't live in Houston.

How could I get involved?

Well, I have the answer for you and it's very simple. Enter our Golf Ball Drop Event and purchase as many golf balls as you'd like for $25 each. We'll assign you a number to each golf ball purchased and on the day of the tournament all balls will be dropped from a helicopter hovering over the driving range. The first ball to land in the designated hole (or closest to the pin) wins a trip for two to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The Ball Drop is limited to 2,000 balls and the deadline to enter is October 25th, 2010. You do NOT have to be present to win. We're a 501c 3 charitable organization so your donation is tax deductible.

To purchase golf balls for entrance into the CMF Ball Drop, to register to play golf or to view a short video of an actual Golf Ball Drop, go to:

You can make your purchase through Paypal. If you do not have a Paypal account, you can still use Paypal and pay with any major credit card. If you prefer to mail a check, go to the above web link to get the form and address for Changing Minds Foundation.

Lastly, for those of you wondering where your money will be going, it's very simple: Research. For example, the Down Syndrome Research Facility at Stanford University is making extensive progress in the laboratory to improve the learning and memory in the DS mouse. They are on the cusp of a major breakthrough. Check out the link to an article below from Scientific American for more information on their findings.

Thank You !

We appreciate all your support.
