Golf Fore Life 2018

Isabelle Ellis Memorial Golf Classic
Friday, June 15, 2018

On Friday, June 15th 144 golfers gathered at St. Andrews Golf Club for the 9th annual Golf Fore Life Isabelle Ellis Memorial Classic.

This year’s tournament was chaired by Sherri and Dan Doherty . Their son Josh had his first liver transplant in 1985 as a baby and his second in 2013 at the age of 28. Thanks to 2 families choosing to give the gift of life, Josh is a healthy adult today.

Isabelle’s family lovingly sponsors this annual golf tournament to help Gift of Life pursue its mission to provide support, awareness and success of organ, eye and tissue donation through education, mentoring and collaboration with partners and individuals in the transplant community.

Thank you to our generous sponsors and enthusiastic golfer who all helped raise net proceeds of $25,000 for Gift of Life.
