This weekend there are two great events Project Medishare supporters can choose to attend in order to help us continue our earthquake relief efforts.
5th Annual Celebrity Amputee Golf Classic, May 20-21
This two-day event begins Thursday, May 20th at the Shake-A-Leg Miami offices at 7 p.m. for a Pairings Party and charity auction. On Friday, May 21st, golfers enjoy a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. before hitting the links at Crandon Park Golf Club in Key Biscayne. Golfers finish off the day with lunch and award presentations.
This year’s event will split revenue equally between Project Medishare for Haiti, Inc. and Shake-a-Leg Miami. Funding received by Project Medishare will go toward the Haitian Amputee Rehabilitation Program, which is treating over 1700 people in Haiti who lost a limb due to the devastating earthquake in January this year. Shake-A-Leg Miami has developed a vocational program for injured service members coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan with physical, developmental, and economic challenges. The program works toward liberating them from a realm of imagination into the realm of experience by means of innovative sailing and water sports education and recreational programming.
