In May 2008, Reem and Hesham Hassaballa held their first fundraiser for AT research, Birdies Fore Bayan. It was held at Eaglewood Resort and Spa in Itasca, IL. It was a four-person golf scramble with a silent auction and dinner. Over 45 golfers participated, and there were dozens who attended the dinner and silent auction. It was a phenomenal success, with over $20,000 raised for AT research. The proceeds benefited the AT Children’s Project, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for AT.
In May 2011, we held our second “Birdies Fore Bayan” at Indian Lakes Golf Club in Bloomingdale, IL. Over 20 golfers attended, and the Foundation raised over $10,000 for its projects. It was also a tremendous success!
The Foundation plans to hold its third “Birdies Fore Bayan” event soon. Stay tuned for further details!
