BEDMINSTER,NJ—The NephCure Foundation’s annual golf outing took place on Monday, October 15, at prestigious Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ, and over $122,000 was raised in the fight against the kidney disease FSGS and Nephrotic Syndrome.
Andrew Silverman of Franklin Lakes, NJ, was co-chairperson for the event, which included golfing, dinner, a silent auction and a live auction. Silverman’s three year-old son, Jed, suffers from Nephrotic Syndrome.
“Getting involved with NephCure is the best decision our family made after learning of my son’s diagnosis,” said Silverman. “This golf outing at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster will raise money to help NephCure continue to fund ground-breaking research that gives families like ours hope that a cure, or at least better treatment options, for these rare diseases are not far away.”
Over 8,000 people are diagnosed with FSGS and Nephrotic Syndrome each year and FSGS is a leading cause of kidney failure in children. The NephCure Foundation is the only organization solely committed to seeking a cause, cure and effective treatments for these diseases, committing over $10 million to research and education in recent years.
