The Nebraska-Southwest Iowa Chapter wants to acknowledge four amazing golf tournaments that recently benefited JDRF!

Special Thanks To:

Trane Tee Up Fore a Cure 2019 JDRF Benefit Golf Tournament
The event was held Tuesday, July 30th at Tiburon Golf Club. This was the first year the Trane’s tournament benefited JDRF. The event included a shot gun start golf scramble, dinner and silent auction which raised over $11,000!

NTA Golf Tournament
The Annual NTA (Nebraska Telecommunications Association) Golf Tournament was held, Monday, August 19th at Woodland Hills Golf Course in Eagle, NE to benefit JDRF. The event raised over $4,500 this year. For the past 16 years the NTA Golf Tournament event has invested $96,026 for T1D Research!

5th Annual Tri-Cities “Tee Up” Golf Scramble
It may have stormed during the 5th Annual Tri-Cities Golf Scramble on Saturday, August 24th benefiting JDRF Nebraska – Southwest Iowa, but it didn’t interfere for the main reason of the event, raising funds for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Over 80 golfers played a few holes at the Elks Country Club in Hastings, NE until rain cancelled the Golf Scramble. Golfers participated the rest of the afternoon by enjoying lunch in the club house, purchasing raffle tickets and silent auction items – raising over $8,000 for T1D research!

NeBAA Annual Golf Tournament and Pre-Event BBQ
The festivities started off on Monday, September 9th at the NeBAA (Nebraska Business Aviation Association) Pre-Event BBQ. The Hensley family, whose daughter, Ruby (10), was diagnosed with T1D in November of 2018, shared their story and the impact that NeBAA’s support has had on T1D research. The next day, a sold out tournament enjoyed 18 holes at Tiburon Golf Club in Omaha, NE. The NeBAA annual tournament has benefited JDRF for over 15 years, raising – to-date – over $150,000!

JDRF is incredibly appreciative for the teams, volunteers, and sponsors who made these events such a success – both in raising funds towards JDRF’s mission to cure, treat and prevent T1D, as well as raising community awareness about the disease. Thank you!
