On August 13, 2016 more than 300 golfers took to the links in The Prieber Open, to honor the memory of Christopher Priebe and raise awareness for amyloidosis. He was diagnosed in October 2015 and passed in February 2016. Chris loved cigars, golf and Grand Marnier. His wife Johna wanted to share his spirit for life and raise funds for others struggling with this rare disease. The event raised thousands of dollars for the Amyloidosis Foundation Research Grant Program and we are so grateful for their support.
The weather was unpredictable but the sun finally came out as well as a rainbow (see below).
The two golf courses used were in Livonia, MI – Fox Creek and Whispering Willows. Players enjoyed lunch donated by Panera and a steak dinner to end the day. Friends of Chris had fun during many of the contests throughout the day plus a chance to win one of the gift baskets.
Thank you to all the volunteers and generous family and friends for making this day so special.
Join us next year on August 12, 2017.
