Clarence, N.Y., (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club will raise funds for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (USA) in early 2006. The Club will use its two major fundraising events to provide financial support to the association. The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (USA) is a 501 (c) (3) corporation dedicated to serving individuals affected by Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), their families, and interested professionals.
Prader-Willi syndrome affects children who are born with a chromosomal defect. There is no cure. The syndrome results in the individual suffering from insatiable hunger that causes uncontrollable weight gain and behavior issues. The affected individual’s metabolic system is slowed down, requiring a smaller amount of food before weight is gained. Affected individuals typically must eat less than 1,200 calories per day.
The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club holds two major fundraising events each year. In 2006, its first fundraiser will be the Monte Carlo Night. The Club will hold its ninth annual Monte Carlo event on Saturday, February 11, at the Brookfield Country Club. The event begins at 7:00 pm and ends at Midnight.
The Club will hold its 11th Charity Golf Tournament on Monday, May 8, at the Brookfield Country Club. The golf will begin at 12:30 pm and will be a four person scramble format.
The Eastern Hills Sunrise Rotary Club will raise funds from both events for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association through the Club’s own 501 (c) (3) foundation. The Club’s foundation seeks major business sponsors to cover the cost of these two events to maximize the funds available for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association.
Companies interested in sponsoring the two events should call Dr. Joseph Margarone III at 631-2800 for the Monte Carlo Night, and Jim Dry at 716-634-7253 for the Charity Golf Tournament.
