Jennie Edmundson Foundation to Honor 4 During Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend
The Jennie Edmundson Foundation (www.jehfoundation.org) is excited to honor four individuals, each who had a cancer diagnosis, during their annual Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend. This year’s honorees are Deb Bladt, Darcey Butts, Bobbi Calderon, and Bob Steele. The entire weekend is focused on these individuals, honoring them for their courage and fight against this deadly disease. At the Spirit of Courage Gala on Saturday, August 3, attendees will have a chance to hear their amazing stories. The gala, which will be held at the MidAmerica Center in Council Bluffs, will also feature dinner, a live and silent auction, and a wine pull.
The Spirit of Courage Celebrity Weekend kicks off the morning of August 3 with a golf tournament at the Dodge Riverside Golf Club, followed by the gala that evening. In addition, on August 4, starting at noon, there will be a No Limit Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament. The net proceeds from the weekend will go to the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Cancer Charitable Patient Care Fund through the Jennie Edmundson Foundation. These funds go towards helping cancer patients who face financial challenges in meeting their needs as they progress through their treatment.
