Zwick Family and Friends Fight Parkinsonís at Annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament

The family and friends of the late Lenny Zwick are taking another swing at Parkinson’s disease. Their Sixth Annual Zwick Pro-Am golf tournament to benefit the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, will take place from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at the Farms Country Club in Wallingford.

The tournament is named in honor of Mr. Zwick, an avid Wallingford golfer who lived with Parkinson’s for 25 years. The Pro-Am includes an 18-hole golf tournament, luncheon and awards dinner to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s research. A dedicated team, which includes Mr. Zwick’s wife Susan and daughter Stacey, and close friends from the Farms Country Club like Head PGA Professional Jim Hanlon, organize the tournament each summer. They say they were inspired by the tenacity Mr. Zwick demonstrated while living with Parkinson’s to establish a fundraiser in his honor.

The Zwick Pro-Am typically draws over one hundred people and has raised over $250,000 for Parkinson’s research since its inception in 2007. It continues to be one of the highest fundraisers for PDF Champions, the grassroots fundraising arm of the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.

This year’s Pro-Am is on par to be another success with its devoted following as golfer registration is already full. There is still room to attend the cocktail reception and awards dinner, with registration per person, for those who wish to be a part of the event.
