Join us to raise some green while having an absolute blast on the green. All the proceeds from our golf tournament will go to the Weston Wayne’s Warriors Foundation — helping families fight childhood cancer. Assemble a team of four players. Choose your costumes. Hop in a cart. Drive. Chip. Putt. Repeat. Just be on the lookout for Nerf darts and the Yeti. It’s all happening at Law-Di-Gras! Use the form below to participate.
On September 28th, 2018, (almost two weeks after his 2nd birthday), a beautiful, blue-eyed boy, Weston Wayne Robertson, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Inpatient treatment at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT was the only option for this form of cancer and Weston and his Mom, Ericka, spent 30-45 days at a time, month after month, in the little hospital room. Todd, Weston’s Dad, would come visit on weekends, having to return back to their home in Ashton, ID to work during the week, which was a 500-mile (8 hours) round-trip.
Did you know that over 75% of families who battle childhood cancer will have a parent forced to either reduce their work hours or leave their job altogether? Can you imagine the financial hardships these families endure on top of the endless hardships of having to care for a child battling cancer?
For this very reason (and so many others), the Weston Wayne’s Warriors Foundation was formed. 100% of all monies raised annually will go directly to those families who truly need help supplementing their income so they can be at their child’s side while they fight for their life. Dads and Moms should never have to choose between feeding their family or attending to their child in need.
This non-profit organization is tax deductible, therefore rendering 100% of the donations able to be allocated directly to families fighting the same battles Weston’s family had to fight. They fought hard…for over 2 years before cancer eventually, a month after his 4th birthday, took his life.
Families with these brave children like Weston need our help. The Robertson’s were shown a remarkable amount of support and kindness while they fought this battle with their son and couldn’t think of a better way to honor him.
