OUR MISSION: Inspired by Lynn's strength, spirit and courage we continue her legacy of giving to others in their time of need and continue to fund research to battle diabetes that has affected her family greatly.
Once again our angel Lynn blessed us with sunshine and warmth for the third annual Lynn M. Coomans Memorial Golf Event. We want to thank all of the golfers, sponsors, guests, and volunteers from around Wisconsin and Illinois who took time out of their busy lives to join us at beautiful Bristol Oaks Country Club to help remember Lynn and honor her memory.
2013 helicopter golf ball dropAs in years past, feedback indicates that everyone had a great time. Newcomers Denis and Tara Murphy of Chicago shared that The LMC Memorial Golf Event “was one of the most fun golf events they have ever attended”. Tara especially appreciated how well organized the registration process was, and was impressed with the generous golfer goodie-bag, in particular the golf shirts that each participant received. Denis thought the helicopter ball drop raffle was particularly unique and exciting. Both are looking forward to attending the event again this year.
Through your generous support The Lynn M. Coomans Memorial Golf Event was able to make another donation in Lynn's honor the for the amount of $10,000 to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Southeast Wisconsin. To date the LMC Memorial Golf Event has provided JDRF with over $40,000 in unrestricted direct cash contributions. By supporting The LMC Memorial Golf Event golfers, sponsors, guests and volunteers have greatly enhanced JDRF’s ability to help families facing this disease, while actively seeking to eradicate it. This is most assuredly a fitting legacy for Lynn and one of which we know she would be proud. On behalf of the entire LMC Golf Event Committee, we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and every one of you who participated. We are also very excited to announce that our work continues! The 4th Annual Lynn M. Coomans Memorial Golf Event is scheduled for September 20, 2014. Once again Bristol Oaks Country Club has graciously agreed to be our host. This year promises to be another great event, including the helicopter ball drop once again!
