June 25, 2018: Swing for a Cure Pro-Am Golf Tournament in Detroit, MI

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in Myeloma Crowd's 1st Annual Swing for a Cure Pro-Am Golf Tournament on Monday, June 25, 2018. This event is a combination of efforts between the Myeloma Crowd and Runyon Family Foundation to raise necessary funds for multiple myeloma research while playing golf at the beautiful Meadowbrook Country Club.

The amateurs will play a modified scramble format, handicapped according to USGA standards. Each team will consist of four amateur players, with a PGA Pro as their 5th team member. Participants are welcome to bring their own PGA Pro or have one supplied for their team by the Michigan PGA. Myeloma Crowd will supply the cash purse for the professional competition.  Lunch will be provided, as well as a banquet dinner with a silent and live auction with many unique items.

Both Jenny Ahlstrom (founder of Myeloma Crowd) and John Runyon are myeloma survivors, so this cause is dear to their hearts. Multiple myeloma cancer is the second most common blood cancer, just after lymphoma. Sadly, the disease is incurable. Proceeds from the tournament and silent and live auctions will benefit the Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative, and help us move one step closer to a cure!
