Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend to Benefit Jennie Edmundson Cancer Patient Fund
Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend is a benefit to help the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund (www.jehfoundation.org/events/spirit-of-courage). This year’s event will be held August 2–4. Since 2003, the Spirit of Courage events have raised a total of $1,597,000. One hundred percent of those dollars have been donated to the Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund.
The Celebrity Weekend kicks off with a “Shotgun Start” golf tournament on August 3, held at Dodge Riverside Golf Club in Council Bluffs. Teams fill up quick, so signup now! Registration begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. This event includes continental breakfast, green fees with cart, beverages, snacks and lunch. Put your team together and golf with a celebrity for a good cause. Following the tournament, there will be a dinner, auction, and gala honoring four amazing individuals who will be in attendance to share their amazing stories. These individuals include Deb Bladt, Darcey Butts, Bobbi Calderon, and Bob Steele. A Texas Hold’em poker tournament will also be on Sunday afternoon, August 4.
The proceeds from these events benefit the Spirit of Courage Charitable Cancer Patient Care Fund, helping to ease the financial burdens of Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital cancer patients in the areas of medications, treatments, and deductibles, as well as everyday living expenses.
