Gudbranson Stem Cell Research Grant:
In 2004, then 6-year old Dennis Gudbranson (youngest brother of OHL Alumni Erik & Alex Gudbranson) was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Though chemotherapy forced the cancer into remission, it soon returned and he was in a battle for his life. After months of waiting and with only a one in 40,000 chance of finding a stem cell donor match, Dennis was able to find an adult match that would save his life. Dennis has been in remission for over ten years, in fact after five years in remission, he’s now considered to be cured. The Gudbranson family has been very proactive in raising money for Stem Cell Research annually, and the OHL Alumni Association couldn’t be happier to help out in their cause.
The tournament will include the following: Round of Golf, Lunch on course, Banquet Dinner, OHL Alumni Gift, a chance numerous prizes through raffle and on-course contests.
Early Bird (Before May 1): Individual $250, Foursome $1,000.
After May 1: Individual $275, Foursome $1,000.
