HAMILTON, NEW JERSEY (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
Hamilton Honda is proud to announce that it was a major sponsor of the recent Ryan’s Quest Annual Golf Outing, a fundraiser for the organization dedicated to the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
This year’s golf event took place at Forsgate Country Club on May 7, 2015. Each year, it raises awareness and support for the research of potential therapeutics and testing platforms for development of Duchenne compounds. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the No. 1 lethal genetic disorder affecting those in childhood.
Hamilton Honda has been involved with the Ryan’s Quest organization since 2010. This year’s event sold out, with 221 golfers participating.
“Each year, we’re incredibly proud to be a part of the Ryan’s Quest Golf Outing,” said Mike Saporito, co-owner of Hamilton Honda. “This year’s event went off without a hitch-- the weather was perfect; the course was beautiful, and we were very pleased with the success of the fundraiser. We look forward to continuing to be a supporter of this worthy cause.”
After the golf event, Hamilton Honda sponsored a silent auction that included several NFL memorabilia items that were donated by co-owners Jessie Armstead and Saporito.
Ryan’s Quest is a non-profit organization that was founded by Maria and David Schultz after their son, Ryan, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Since then, it has embodied a mission of increasing awareness of the disease, with the intention of allocating funds for research that has the greatest potential of finding a cure or treatment. Hamilton Honda and other businesses, organizations and individuals work hard every year to help further the cause.
