The 2016 Golf Tournament beneficiaries are:

Eric’s Camp Fund: The story of Eric’s Camp Fund begins in the summer of 1988 with a young man named Eric Druten. After battling cancer at age 10, Eric was one of the first campers to experience the magic of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Connecticut. This haven for children with serious illnesses was created so they would have a place to just be kids. Their mission is to continue Eric’s dream to share the magic of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp with children from Kansas City and surrounding communities whose childhoods have been interrupted by cancer.
