The friends and family of Camden Burke will be hosting the third annual Crush for Camden's Crew Golf Scramble on Saturday, May 8, at the Indian Springs Golf Club near Coffeen.
Burke is the five-year-old son of Jason and Gina Burke of Irving, and is currently battling Cri Du Chat syndrome.
The syndrome is characterized by delays in both physical and cognitive function stemming from a deletion on one arm of the fifth chromosome. For some living with Cri Du Chat, the effects are profound, while for others, it is more mild.
To help Camden catch up on some of his skills, he attends a variety of therapies in this area, as well as an alternative therapy in Chicago and St. Louis. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to help pay for the alternative therapy, which is not covered by insurance.
Golf will start at 9 a.m. for the four-person scramble, with prizes awarded to the top three finishers in two flights. There will also be a flighted skins game and lunch will be provided.
The cost to play is $240 for teams that sign up before April 27, or $280 for teams after the early bird date. Those who can't play that day are able to purchase hole sponsorships for $50.
To enter, send the entry fee, the names of all four players and contact information for the team captain to Jason Burke at 570 McCords Trail, Irving, IL, 62051.
