Dear TKO Friends and Supporters,
We hope you are all healthy and staying safe through these unique and challenging times. We continue to be grateful for many blessings, including your continued support – thank you.
We know this is a period of uncertainty and summer plans have been, and may continue to be, rapidly changing. We also recognize that many factors are changing the circumstances of daily life. We believe in our mission of Knocking Out Parkinson’s and we value your support and comradery. We also would like to take the opportunity this year to provide some support to smaller businesses that have been so generous to TKO in years past.
For these reasons, we are still planning to hold a modified version of the TKO annual fundraising event. The structure this year will provide flexibility and options, while protecting the health and safety of our supporters. Our current plans for July 17th include a modified golf tournament and online-only silent auction. We will NOT be hosting a dinner gathering (no dinner-only tickets) or on-site silent auction.
Here are some additional details for both portions of the event:
GOLF: The modified tournament will include staggered tee times, simplified play and a boxed meal to go. All golfing guidelines and protocols will be followed. Join us for some safe socialization, partnership and (hopefully) beautiful summer weather. $80 per golfer
SILENT AUCTION: The silent auction will be available throughout the day and online through the ClickBid program that was introduced last year. Support our mission and shop from the comfort of your home. You will have the opportunity to bid on items (many of which will directly support local businesses and groups who have generously supported our mission) or make a flat donation to TKO. More details, including instructions, to follow.
If you have already purchased dinner-only or golf tickets, please choose from the following options:
We know this year is unique. If your plans and circumstances have changed and you can no longer join us for 2020 (in person golfing or virtually at the silent auction), we look forward to seeing you next year at our event.
As always, we thank you sincerely for your support, contributions and generosity. Stay healthy and safe!
Jason and the TKO Team
Exercise is the only countermeasure to slow the progression of Parkinson's disease. Our journey started in July of 2014 when Jason was diagnosed with PD at the age of 36. Since that day we have been living an extremely active life style. This blog will be mainly focused on the activities that support the day to day changes PD throws at us!
