Annual Golf Outing

Dear Friend of IFOND,

We are pleased to announce the 21st Annual IFOND Golf Outing.

As IFOND enters its 21st year, the funds raised at this Golf Outing have helped sponsor 13 Scientific Field Investigations to study the causes and potential treatment of Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON). The results of these studies have the potential to help the many thousands who have been stricken with various diseases of the Optic Nerve.

Most of the world's literature published on LHON over the past 14 years has been written by the cadre of scientists connected to these IFOND supported field investigations. Important advances in therapy have been made and continue to be made due to their efforts.

Your generosity serves to directly support cutting edge scientific studies on optic nerve disease. IFOND is a volunteer foundation and as such accrues no costs related to salaries and the proceeds of our fundraising efforts go directly to support the study of Optic Nerve Disease.

Below is an outline of this year’s event and a description of the many ways you can help. Whatever your choice, your support is greatly appreciated by the Foundation.

If you are planning to attend, please reply by August 30, 2016 to allow us to properly plan for the day.

A heartfelt thank you for your generous support.

Sincerely,

Fred & Anne Diehl

Dear Mr. Diehl:

It is with great pleasure that we present this check in the amount of $5,000 to the International Foundation for Optic Nerve Disease (IFOND.) Donald Diehl was recently presented with an award as a Finalist in the McCormick Community Service Award Program. The Community Service Award is presented to employees who best exemplify McCormick's commitment to improving the communities in which we live and work through their volunteer efforts. We are very pleased to recognize his time and commitment to your organization and this important cause.

It is our hope that the McCormick Community Service Award Program, and the efforts of people like Donald, will continue to inspire other McCormick employees to give back and volunteer their time to helping others.
Sincerely,
