Paul Ruby Foundation Golf Outing

I had the honor of attending and doing some shooting at the annual Paul Ruby Foundation Golf Outing at Tanna Farms Golf Course in Geneva, IL. The Paul Ruby Foundation was organized by Paul Ruby, who also suffers from the unfortunate effects of Parkinson's disease.

The mission of the Paul Ruby Foundation for Parkinson's Research is to increase awareness about the disease and to raise money for Parkinson's research in partnership with the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Memorial Hospital for the shared vision of increasing clinical research to extend the knowledge and treatment of Parkinson's disease. - Paul Ruby

Here are the volunteer caddies in their "fuscia" shirts. Aren't they handsome?

It also happened to be Paul Ruby's birthday.

These burgers were the size of our heads.

This is Paul Ruby's doctor at Northwestern.

A toast to Paul...he's the man.

A good time was had by all...the weather could not have been more perfect and they raised a boatload of money for research from the silent auction and all of the day's events. Chad and his foursome happened to be the lucky winners...Chad even won 'closest to the pin'...must have been his lucky day.
