Spearheaded by Phil and Kathy Halcomb, the 15th annual David Allen Company MS Golf Tournament, in partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, will be held June 12 at the Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club in Gainesville, Va., 40 minutes outside of Washington, D.C. Registration is $300 per person and will begin at 10 a.m. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
The David Allen Company, which focuses on concept design and installation for ceramic tile, marble, stone, terrazzo and epoxy flooring, is currently recruiting participants and sponsors, as well as looking for raffle prize donations. Participants will partake in a complete program of special events, including 18 holes of golf, lunch, and raffle prizes, and will conclude with an awards banquet.
Twenty years ago, Kathy Halcomb was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable neurological disease that interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body. Last year the tournament raised a record $80,000 to be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Capital Chapter to support local programs and services for people affected by MS. Halcomb recalls “when we presented the Chapter with the check from the tournament, it was the largest yet and everyone had tears in their eyes. It was great to know that we could make such a difference."
Funds raised by the event will benefit local programs and services for people living with MS, and their families. The National Capital Chapter provides a wide range of services varying from counseling, education, and employment, to information and referral, public policy development and advocacy, and financial assistance in the D.C. area.
“We are proud to have a partner like the David Allen Company in our work to end multiple sclerosis,” said J. Christopher Broullire, president of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Capital Chapter. “The annual David Allen Company MS Golf Tournament gets bigger and better every year. Phil Halcomb and his staff there work very hard to make a difference in the lives of many thousands of people living with MS.”
