2017 Lupus Bad Pants* Open
(*bad pants are optional)
1 pm shotgun start
Please join us for an afternoon of great golf, bad pants and the important work of bringing awareness and support to one of the cruelest diseases, Lupus. In Lupus, a person’s body literally attacks itself: the immune system mistakes healthy organs as dangerous intruders and causes significant pain, inflammation and life threatening complications.
Over 1.5 million American suffer from Lupus: more than ALS, cystic fibrosis, MS and AIDS combined. Lupus is most frequently diagnosed in women of childbearing age, although it can affect anyone at any age. Minorities are affected three times as frequently, and three out of four Lupus patients experience complete disability at some point in their lives.
The Mid-South Chapter of the Lupus Foundation of America is based in Nashville but provides needed services to Lupus patients in Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. Your generosity in sponsoring and participating in this tournament makes possible innovative services such as one-on-one educational counseling, support groups throughout the service area, and funding of research to help create better treatments and, at last, a cure for Lupus.
Lupus Foundation of America:
The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact. We envision a life free of lupus.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy.
