Thanks to everyone who supported the 15th annual Ben's Buddies Charity Golf Tournament. We had a great day for golf and raised over $7,000 for the Benjamin Walker Hanson Neonatology Fund.

We are planning on hosting the 14th annual Ben's Buddies Birthday Bash next April and the 16th annual golf tournament on Sunday, September 11th 2022.

Hope to see you all again next year.
